Our mission at the Poland Travel Agency is to help you to discover Poland – the cities, the towns, the countryside, the culture, the people, and much more.
Poland is Europe’s ninth biggest state (120,728 square miles) and the Polish language is now the second most spoken in the UK. Many people in the UK are now aware of some of the country’s culture and may even have tried Polish food and drink from one of the many Polish shops on UK’s high streets, however when it comes to the country itself, there remains a lot of misconception.
You can trace Poland’s history all the way back to the 10th century. Often turbulent, sometimes golden, frequently tragic, the last thousand years has seen a period of expansionism followed by its collapse and subsequent partitions, a couple of World Wars, a period of communism and recently, the restoration of democracy.
Poland’s history has provided tourists with an abundance of places to visit and things to do. When you begin to discover Poland, you will find many castles to explore and many WWII sites to tour. Geographically, Poland has always been unfortunate and has found itself in the middle of many conflicts and tragically this was the case during WWII.
You will find tributes dedicated to various battles in the form of monuments and museums in many locations in Poland in addition to recognition of the country’s deep Jewish heritage in the shape of Holocaust memorials and restored synagogues.
On this website, you will find information about the top 15 most popular cities and towns in Poland. Each location has a unique identity and individual charm. From energetic Warsaw, Kraków and Gdańsk to postcard perfect Zakopane, there are plenty of wonderful places to explore.
For those people who prefer the great outdoors and fresh-air fun, Poland provides a plethora of destinations and activities. You will find beautiful mountains, 328 miles of golden coastline, over 10,000 lakes, huge forests, National Parks and it even has its own little desert.
Extremely rich in culture and history, Poland hosts 16 of the UNESCO listed World Heritage Sites, the majority of which are cultural. These are natural or man-made sites, areas, or structures recognised as being of outstanding international importance and therefore as deserving special protection.
