Poland, officially the Republic of Poland is located in Central Europe. Through Soviet conflict and World Wars Poland has struggled for independence. In spite of being totally destroyed during World War II Poland today shows little of its turbulent past. The present architectural landscape may have been shaped by many years of Communism but Poland today comes across as a country of interesting and varied opportunities and cultures. 

Many people think of some of the world’s best vodka when they think of Poland, but the country is much more than just that. It is a country with a rich culture and heritage. The people are friendly and embody solidarity through troubled times. Without those troubled times, we would not be able to visit places like the Museum of WWII, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Panorama of the Battle of Racławice, or the European Solidarity Centre. 

Nowhere else can you visit the world’s largest brick castle as is evidenced by the Malbork Castle, or towns like Gdansk run by Teutonic Knights. You can mine for salt in Wieliczka, or journey to Gierłoż to the Wolf’s Lair. Shop to your heart’s content, have some cabbage rolls, and a pint of beer in any small town.

Primeval forests and sand dune parks, even Mother Nature herself are staking their claims. Will you claim yours?
