Traveling along the Polish culture route is never boring! First, we recommend a tour of the Old Town in Krakow, which center is the beautiful, historic Main Square. The architectural complex of this place survived all the cataclysms of the past and kept the layout unchanged from the Middle Ages. At any time of the year there are crowds of tourists from all over the world, and the streets are beautified by tireless florists, painters and musicians. Climatic horse carriages are waiting for the tired guests, of which a Polish twentieth-century poet, K.I. Gałczyński wrote in the poem „Enchanted droshky”.
From romantic Krakow, we move to the north of the country to the capital of Poland – Warsaw. It is worth knowing that after World War II, this city was 90% destroyed. Thanks to the post-war reconstruction, today we can enjoy the beauty of this city. Not in a way to be in Warsaw and not to visit the Royal Castle, which dates back to the 16th century. Not far from this beautiful monument is the historical cathedral of St. Jana, almost completely destroyed during the Second World War. Today, it was rebuilt in the original Gothic style. It is also worth visiting the Polart Art Gallery, which is run by ethnographers-enthusiasts promoting Polish folklore. The eyes of strolling tourists enjoy charming tenements – the last witnesses of historical events, for example the Warsaw Uprising.
Further to the north of the country is a beautiful city – Toruń. This is the place where the history and contemporary are crossed. You can meet a lot of walking artists, scientists and students. Suddenly, happy children dressed as knights can emerge from around the corner. On our tourist trail around the Gothic Toruń you can not miss such monuments as the Old Town Hall, the House of Nicolaus Copernicus, the Leaning Tower or the Bridge Gate. When strolling through these charming places, you must purchase the Torun gingerbread – a delicacy of this city.
Right next to the Polish coast is another beautiful city of Gdansk – and in the very heart of the Old Town. Strolling through the narrow streets of Gdansk, you can go back in time by about 1000 years. It is here where very old buildings are located, which authenticity is undermined by anyone. It is worth visiting the Długi Targ, unchanged since the Middle Ages, being in fact a huge promenade offering countless pubs and cafes. It is impossible not to stop at least for a moment and look at street performances. In Gdańsk, you must visit the Town Hall and dip your hand in the famous fountain of Neptune.
As you can see, there are many places in Poland that are vibrant with life. Thanks to various offers, you can take a closer look at the culture of our country and learn about its aesthetic values.
