9TH PLACE: BIALOWIEZA NATIONAL PARK
The call of nature beckons here. You can go on a voyage of discovery in one of the last primeval forests in Europe, which was declared Poland’s first national park in 1932 and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can experience the lowland forest without human intervention, which is why the biological diversity is overwhelming, and with a little luck you can encounter the gentle giants of the forest – the bison – in their original environment.
8TH PLACE: SZCZECIN
Szczecin – today Szczecin – has, like many Polish cities, an eventful past. The university town offers some historical highlights and landmarks, such as the Greifenschloss of the Pomeranian princes. But the hooked terraces also invite you to take a walk along the Oder with a wonderful view of the silhouette of the former Hanseatic city. If you still have some time, you should take a short detour to the Crooked Forest – Krzywy las -, which exudes a mystical atmosphere with its unconventionally shaped pines.
7TH PLACE: LEBA SAND DUNES
So many landscapes in the smallest of spaces – that is what the Slowinski National Park offers. Whether open Baltic Sea, desert-like sand dunes or secluded forests and calm lagoon lakes. This region leaves no one unimpressed. Take your time and go or let a beach buggy take you to the dunes and let the unadulterated nature work its magic on you. After an eventful day you can strengthen yourself here in the restaurant with delicious Polish dishes.
6TH PLACE: WARSAW AND THE PALACE OF CULTURE
Warsaw is known for the coexistence of western and eastern cultural influences. The architecture also reflects both the modern and the historical of Warsaw. The special sights of the city include the palace square with the Sigismund column, the royal palace as well as the market square and the churches of the old town. One of the most impressive photo opportunities is the mighty Palace of Culture. The view of the city from here is simply fantastic!
5TH PLACE: MASURIA
Masuria – the wonderful lake landscape of Poland! In addition to the beautiful nature, the region also offers a lot of culture: In Lötzen (Gizycko), for example, the Boyen fortress and the swing bridge, which is rare in Europe, are worth a visit. Heiligelinde (Swieta Lipka) is a famous pilgrimage site with a baroque Jesuit church. We recommend a visit to the church and especially the organ concert, during which you can admire the moving figures on the organ prospect. Rastenburg (Ketrzyn) or Dönhoffstädt Castle could also be on your program.
4TH PLACE: GDANSK AND THE SURROUNDING AREA

The imposing Marienkirche, the crane gate on the Mottlau, the Neptune fountain and the right town hall with its splendid interior are worth seeing. The Frauengasse, lined with pretty town houses, leads from St. Mary’s Church to Motlawa. After the tour, enjoy a coffee at the Long Market or on the banks of the Motława River. But also the area with the fashionable Baltic Sea resort of Sopot or the historic Marienburg make Gdansk a perfect starting point for a stopover of several days.
3RD PLACE: BRESLAU AND THE DWARFS
Breslau – today Wroclaw. The city is crossed by numerous arms of the Oder and is therefore often referred to as “Silesian Venice”. The cathedral, the city palace, the ring with its colorful house facades and the Centennial Hall are among the most important sights. But what is unique are the Wroclaw dwarfs. These bronze ones Figures are scattered all over the city and the number is increasing – so go on an exciting and amusing tour of discovery.

The Krakow Royal Castle, located on Wawel Hill, is still a silent witness of the splendor of bygone days. With architectural styles from four different epochs, a tour is like a journey through time. The Cloth Hall and St. Mary’s Church with its high altar are located on the medieval market square of Krakow, this is where Krakow’s heart beats. The Jewish quarter of Kazimierz with the old synagogue is also worth exploring. Krakow is the best place to visit our number 1 tourist attraction in Poland:
