Discover Poland's Old Towns and Step Back in Time

The most remarkable characteristic of the country is its huge diversity. In the south of the country, where Poland borders on the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the Carpathian and Tatra Mountains as well as the Beskide and Bieszczady mountain ranges provide spectacular highland scenery. In the East, Poland borders on Lithuania, Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine, while in the West, the river Oder forms the frontier between Poland and Germany. The Great Masurian Lakes in the Northeast of the country are particularly beautiful and also provide the natural habitat for a unique range of plants and animals. The Baltic Sea coast with its endless sandy beaches, sand dunes and towering cliffs is equally attractive. Along the Baltic Sea coastline, you can still find old sea ports, deeply steeped in history, which even today bear witness to their glamorous past –  Szczecin, for instance (the largest Polish harbour on the Baltic Sea) or Gdansk (with its ancient history and St. Mary’s Church, a behemoth holding over 20 000 people). Other landmarks enticing visitors to Poland include Torun and Malbork, with a castle dating back to the heyday of the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century.
