Historic cities and ancient castles, diverse landscapes and traditional food – Poland is a country that demands exploration.
Whether you want to wander around fairy-tale KrakÃ³w, spy rare bison in Bialowieza Forest, or hike among the snow-capped Tatra Mountains, your DK Eyewitness travel guide makes sure you experience all that Poland has to offer.
Poland is as famed for enchanting KrakÃ³w, with its cobbled streets and opulent palaces, as it is for edgy Warsaw, home to high-tech museums and neon-lit bars. But beyond this tale of two cities, there’s so much more to discover. Encounter medieval towns, artsy cities and some of Europe’s most spectacular landscapes, including wildlife-filled forests, expansive lakes and white-sand Baltic beaches.
