Reasons to Visit:

Countryside: A few kms out of the city, you’ll find quiet country roads perfect for cycling along amidst forests ideal for long walks and jogs. Just watch out for boars. The Baltic sea is north, and there’s the national park with bison in the south.

Cuisine: Many tasty dishes to try, from famous pierogi to beetroot soup and chocolate-covered plums.

History and Society: It’s very interesting to experience Poland’s development from Communist country to more western society, with some elements of its history still held onto.

Old Town: With meticulously decorated churches, striking political buildings, lovely pastel-coloured houses, cobbled streets with buskers and horse-drawn carriages, this area of huge historic significance makes the perfect setting for a period drama.

Vodka: Only the best here!
