Seven Reasons to visit Poland in 2022
Discover one of Europe’s most accessible and affordable destinations from vibrant cities to Poland’s most undiscovered regions crossing coast and country. In 2022 enjoy active relaxation and get closer to nature in Poland.
1. The ultimate flash getaway
Get to Poland in a flash via some of the best transport links in Europe. Poland’s location makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a quick weekend away with direct flights operated daily from the UK to Kraków, Katowice, Gdańsk, Szczecin, Poznań, Lublin, and Rzeszów.
2. Affordable, high-quality travel
There’s no need to spend endless amounts of money in Poland, as the country is one of Europe’s most affordable tourist destinations, particularly when it comes to the nightlife, accommodation, attractions, and international flights.
3. Outstanding coastline and white sandy beaches
Allow Poland’s white sandy beaches to take your breath away along the Baltic Coast. Head to Sopot, home to the longest wooden pier in Europe, whose views stretch out across the Baltic Sea, or discover Jurata, the popular seaside resort along the 35 km Hel Peninsula. Enjoy relaxed sunset walks on the wide sandy beach, or try sailing, windsurfing or kitesurfing on its perfectly blue shores.
4. Get back to nature in rugged rural regions
Experience Poland’s idyllic rural regions outside its iconic city life. Combine city and sea in Gdansk or escape to one of Poland’s many unique agro farms few tourists know about and activities like bread and cheese making, fish smoking, and horse riding.
5. Voted one of Europe’s best foodie cultures
Follow your taste buds to historic Kraków, the 2019 European Capital of Gastronomy Culture, or sip your way through the burgeoning craft beer scene in Wroclaw, the former EU Capital of Culture, for a foodie break. As well as its diverse selection of regional cuisines, Poland is home to one of the world’s oldest beer brewing cultures, producing some of the world’s finest beers for well over a thousand years. In Warsaw, visitors will also find an array of restaurants and cosy cafes – a true paradise for foodies.
6. Bursting with authentic experiences
Experience Poland’s unique health resorts, where visitors are invited to get outside and closer to nature. For a unique getaway discover the Kashubian region, home to its very own language. Kashubian is the second language spoken after Polish and since 2005 enjoys legal protection as an official regional language - the only tongue in Poland with this status. Experience local custom, and authentic cuisine and enjoy centuries-old Polish traditions.
7. Warsaw – one of the best cities for vegans
Warsaw is one of the top vegan-friendly cities in Europe, and the district of Śródmieście Południowe (Southern Downtown) has become the epicentre of plant-based dining. What began as a hipster food culture based around meat-free burgers has grown into a nuanced scene, as vegan ramen bars jostle for space with vegan bakeries, sushi restaurants, and Polish diners. Veganism here often goes hand in hand with political activism, and Warsaw’s whole food co-ops and cafes are a great way into Poland’s counterculture.
