If you are travelling to Poland your first port of call is bound to be one of its cities. World War II devastated many of them, destroying most of the original architecture. Thankfully all have been restored, and Krakow managed to stay unscathed.
If you want to get off the beaten track, travel south where you will find the country is most mountainous. Along the border here is where most national parks are located between the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ukraine.
UNESCO have listed a total of 11 World Heritage Sites around the country. Along with the historical centres of Krakow and Warsaw, some others include the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork (Poland’s largest) and Auschwitz Concentration Camp not far from Krakow.
