Poland is a country filled with history and culture – it’s the perfect place to enjoy an adventurous break or family holiday. The capital, Warsaw, is filled with things to see and do.
Head for the Old Town Market Square where you can take a tour of the city in a ‘droshky’ (horse-drawn cart) or enjoy shopping on Nowy Swiat, one of the city’s busiest shopping streets. Also worth visiting is Krakow, one of Poland’s most ancient cities.
Take a day trip to Auschwitz Memorial and Museum; you’ll need at least 3 hours to see everything here, or head for the Royal Castle, which dates back to 1000. You could even sample some local ‘Oscypek’, Polish sheep cheese.
