If there is one thing that Poland can offer in bucket loads, its culture and history. There are plenty of historic sights and buildings to explore in its cities. Warsaw is full of historical importance and this can be seen throughout the city. Head to Warsaw’s Old Town which is brimming with old buildings from the medieval period. The fascinating bit is, many of these buildings had to be reconstructed after WWII as Warsaw was significantly affected. Walk through the city’s narrow streets and make your way to the Royal Castle which exudes the complete style that you’ll find throughout Poland.

On the other hand, you might choose to visit Krakow instead and you won’t be disappointed. Also known for its medieval buildings and architecture, Krakow also has a Jewish Quarter which hosts a lot of the action. Head to Wawel Castle which is absolutely stunning and surrounded by lush grounds. Finally, whilst in Krakow, make your way to the outskirts where you’ll find Oświęcim, home to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. If you’re a history buff or simply interested in the events of WWII, embark on a guided tour and visit the educational museum on site to investigate one of the most famous symbols of the Holocaust.
