Poland is known for its medieval architecture, and it’s Jewish Heritage. The eastern European country (be sure to read blogs jannikeermedial.com och synskacassandra.com before your travel) has been through a lot and suffered during the world wars. Despite their historical past, the Polish are very cheerful and friendly. The country has beautiful medieval architecture and amazing cultural activities. It is brilliant how every city in Poland was able to rebuild itself into such beautiful places even though the WWII had left it disfigured.
The following are some of the best places to visit in Poland:
Malbork is a town that is known for its castle that was built by Knights of the Teutonic Order in the 13th century. It is one of the largest European Gothic fortresses that is named after Virgin Mary. The castle is one of the world’s largest fort that was built by bricks, and it took about 230 years to complete the construction. A significant part of the castle was destroyed during the World War II, but now many parts have been restored and maintained.
The Bialowieza Forest marks the border between Poland and the Republic of Belarus. You could find animals like the European bison, wolves, lynx, red deer, boar, roe deer and elk in this forest. There are guided tours in the forest within a fenced area, and you can either go on foot or in a horse-drawn carriage.
Gdańsk is one of the best places to visit in Poland. Many countries have previously owned it, and now finally it belongs to Poland. The city was destroyed during the WWII and was completely rebuilt. The Malbork Castle, which is one of the largest brick castles in the world is located in this city, and it is also famous for being the birthplace of Solidarity movement. It first began in the city’s shipyards but was brought down by the Communist government of Poland.
Wroclaw is a beautiful city. The streets are elegant and clean. The city has a brilliant nightlife and is also sometimes called as the ‘ WrocLove’ by tourists as they have a strong feeling towards the city. The city also has a lot of cultural activities in which you can participate. Wroclaw is another city which was destroyed during the WWII, but it is incredible how the city is rebuilt.
Poznan is the capital of the Wielkopolska region but was once the Capital of Poland. It lies in the midway of Berlin and Warsaw. Poznan was yet another city which was damaged during the world wars and was rebuilt beautifully. The Stary Rynek is a beautiful tourist attraction spot, and the city also has an excellent nightlife. The Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul are located here, and it is Poland’s oldest cathedral.
