A city in northern Poland and two hours south of Gdansk. Don't miss (Stare Miastro) old town, or what you see in the picture above Śródmieście- district and The eagle hotel.

Karpacz in Poland

A town in south-west Poland and the border with the Czech Republic. A cool spa town and ski resort. The Poles are Catholics and the families are large. Funparks are the best for them and there is also a large Fairytale Park in the ski resort of Karkonosze.

Ogrodzieniec Castle

We should probably call the castle a ruin but it seems super cool, and just like the ancient ruins in Ireland and Scotland. It is located 66 km (about 1 h 12 min) northwest of Krakow.

Katowice, Poland

Poland's black pearl because it is a mining town. There is always something more when you dig and here is the wooden church of St Michael the Archangel.

Niedzica Castle in Poland

The castle is also known for Dunajec Castle, and known for being built during the Polish-Hungarian relations of 1320-1326.


The place you get angry and sad about that is in the Oświęcim but you have to visit these places to remember what can happen. The largest concentration camp of the Second World War. Included in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979.

  2. Arne Lindh says:

    There will probably be a trip down through Poland to the Czech Republic and Prague etc. this summer. Reading up on your tips now. Do you still have plans for "company trips" in that direction?
    PS. Maybe we'll see you at the fair in Kista. Thinking about going there.

    • Helena says:

      How nice that you are planning a trip in Poland and Czech Republic Arne! 🙂 The plans for group travel are on hold ... we have had too much to do, and it is a lot of work to get it done ...

  3. Pernilla says:

    Thanks for great guide about Poland! Do you know where they say about dogs? In campsites, beaches and restaurants?
    The Germans are very friendly to dogs, fingers crossed that the Poles are too... 🙂.

    • Helena says:

      Glad you like our guide Pernilla! We have not travelled with dogs ourselves, but we have met many dogs at the campsites in Poland so it does not seem to be a problem. When it comes to beaches and restaurants, I do not dare to answer.

  4. Jörgen says:

    A small error has crept into the geography of Poland (Geography of Poland
    Poland borders Slovakia to the south, the Czech Republic to the south-west, Germany to the east.)
    Germany is located west of Poland.
    You have a very good blog that I have taken a lot of inspiration from for this summer's trip.
    With kind regards Jörgen

  5. Irene says:
