    Potential perils of holidaying in Poland


    Poland has experienced somewhat of a tourism boom since its admission to the EU. With its inexpensive prices, beautiful history and culture, it’s easy to see why Poland has become such a popular tourist destination. However, no destination, no matter how idyllic, is completely free from accidents on holiday. Here are some of the perils of holidaying in Poland.

    Pickpocketing

    In some of the larger cities such as Warsaw, there is a high rate of crime and instances of pickpocketing are commonplace. Pickpockets normally strike in crowded areas where they can blend in with the throng. Ensure that you keep your phone and wallet in an inner pocket of your jacket to prevent theft.

    Road traffic accidents

    Statistics have shown that the rate of fatal road traffic accidents is much higher in Poland than in the UK. In 2013 there were 3,357 road deaths in Poland. This equates to 8.7 road deaths per 100,000 of population and compares to the UK average of 2.7 road deaths per 100,000 of population in 2013.

    Healthcare

    The Polish health system is of a comparable quality with the NHS. Private medical care is relatively inexpensive. However, English is not widely spoken in Poland and you may find that you have communication difficulties if you require a trip to a hospital or doctor during your stay. It is recommended that you visit your GP 8 weeks before you travel, in order to receive any vaccinations that may be required. Tick-borne encephalitis is common, especially in forested areas during the summer.
