The diversity of Poland's cities means that travelers won’t feel that their tour is a litany of sameness. Each city in Poland has a distinct feel and social culture. From Warsaw’s urban pulse to Krakow’s historic pride, to Wroclaw’s whimsy, to Gdansk’s stately maritime heritage, Poland’s cities distinguish themselves from one another easily. Any tour of Poland should include several cities, as well as towns and villages in between. You will be hard-pressed to determine which is your favorite!
World Heritage sites designated by UNESCO preserve cultural and historical artifacts of Poland’s past. These sites make great destinations for travelers to this country; one of the most popular is Krakow’s Old Town, but if you’re in Krakow, it is easy to also see two other UNESCO-protected sites, the Salt Mines and Auschwitz-Birkenau.
