From Kraków, Warsaw and Gdańsk to the smaller towns hidden deep in the mountains, Poland is as picturesque as it is cultural. Steeped in tradition and history, its cities are jam-packed with fascinating reminders of its tumultuous past, whilst also nudging shoulders with some of the most beautiful lakes, mountains and walking trails found in the whole of Europe. If you are a solo traveller seeking a city break full of variety, Poland is for you.
Krakow is becoming an increasingly popular city break for many travellers. With its city dating back to the 7th century it is no wonder Krakow is steeped in myths and legends! Explore the bustling squares and unrivalled architecture or maybe take a trip underground to discover the personality hidden below the streets. The Rynek Underground Museum is a network of tunnels running underneath Krakow where single travellers can uncover the timeline of this beautiful city.
Poland has a massive 16 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the oldest castle in the world, Malbork. Despite claims that Prague has the oldest castle, it is in fact Poland! Other sites to visit include the old town centre of Krakow and the Wieliczka Salt Mines. There are plenty of opportunities for the solo traveller to explore this country’s remarkable history and discover what has been left behind from both wars and numerous past uprisings.
