Destination Information

Poland is a country of immense beauty: the Baltic seacoast, the lake districts bordering Lithuania and Belarus, the ancient forests of the middle country, the Carpathian mountain ranges to the south. Most visitors are drawn to Kraków, which rivals Prague in medieval splendor. A three-hour train ride south of Warsaw, this romantic baroque city (undamaged during World War II) is a treasure trove of Polish art and architecture.
