Poland Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 64%, Poland can be both sobering and refreshing in the manner in which it presents the best and worst of its top destinations. On the sobering side, no PlanetHopper! should ever pass up the opportunity to visit the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, a place that represents one of mankind's lowest points. It is a sad and heart-wrenching destination, but necessary to visit to ensure that mistakes of the past are not repeated. However, the light also shines brightly in Poland, as the country has more than its fair share of appealing destinations. Some of these include the natural wonders of Slowinski National Park and the primeval Bialowieza Forest, which together offer some of the country's best hiking, cycling, and bird watching. There are even bison and carriage rides! But perhaps the real best thing about Poland is how its people revel in the fact that they are Polish. This is clearly on display during festivals such as the Lajkonik Festival, where locals celebrate their historic victories over foreign invaders. By the end of your visit, don't be surprised if you find yourself wanting to add a "ski" to the end of your surname!
