Running our fanpage Niesamowita Polska on Facebook, we often encounter comments that prove that we have so many wonderful places in our country that we had no idea existed. Each province is a separate story - they are all different, and some are extremely different from each other, but they all have one thing in common - a huge number of interesting corners where you can spend valuable time. Whether with family, as a couple, in a group of friends or even alone!
We present to you a list of 100 ideas for holidays in Poland. The places presented are destinations discovered and checked by us for longer holiday trips or short weekend trips out of town. Please take our tips!

Travel advice -
When coming to Poland, remember that COVID restrictions no longer apply. A toll is required when driving on the motorway. Car headlights must be used 24/7. Alcohol is sold to persons over 18 years of age.
We start with the Lower Silesian Voivodeship - it is a region full of tourist attractions. We will recommend you some interesting destinations that we have checked ourselves. Get ready for a huge dose of information because it is a province rich in mountain peaks, mines, castles, caves, fortresses and... check it out for yourself!
You can read more about the attractions of the Lower Silesian Voivodeship here.
Wrocław - what is worth seeing here?
Wrocław has several names - for some, it is the "city of meetings", for others "the city of a hundred bridges", and still others call it "Venice of the North". Which of them is right? Actually, everyone, because in Wrocław we will not only meet wonderful people but also places created by them, to which we gladly return. On the streets of Wrocław, it is almost impossible to avoid encountering the ubiquitous dwarfs, which no one is able to count accurately today.
Wrocław also has a lot of bridges. There are exactly 101 of them and 33 footbridges, which makes it the first place in Poland in this respect and one of the first in Europe. Apart from the obligatory points, which are the Market Square and the oldest part of the city - Ostrów Tumski, a walk along the Oder boulevards and bridges, what can we visit in Wrocław?
It is an interactive, unique on a Polish scale centre of knowledge about water, created in an underground, historic, 19th-century clean water reservoir. In Hydropolis, we will find out where the waves come from, how it is possible that water burns, how a water printer works or how clouds are formed. Hydropolis is multimedia technologies, touch screens, faithful replicas, interactive installations and models, which in a modern way are to provide the visitor with information about water, without which there would be no life on earth.
In Hydropolis, we will observe the operation of the longest water printer in Europe, we will stand in the middle of the tiger shark's hunting scene for a shoal of 1,500 tunas, we will enter the legendary Trieste bathyscaphe, we will admire the world's most accurate acrylic copy of the sculpture of David, we will discover Wrocław from a bird's eye view thanks to the most modern model in Poland, and we will also check the principles of operation of the most important ancient water inventions.
2. Kopalnia Wrocław - Holiday Zone
If you are looking for ideas for a one-day holiday near Wrocław, you have come to the right address. In Paniowice near Wrocław, there is a clean and well-suited reservoir for relaxation, forming a whole holiday complex. We will find here a family beach, an entertaining Beach Club, a climatic Bay and an island dedicated especially to dogs. For the active, there is a water sports zone (water obstacle course, flying slippers - flyboard, SUP boards). Clean beaches with golden sand attract many enthusiasts of truly water recreation, not far from the centre of a large city.
3. Kwatera Główna
Wrocław boasts one of the best and largest laser tags in the country. This is an offer for those who like adrenaline. In the underground labyrinth of the Kwatera Główna, two bases, tunnels, mezzanines, and obstacles in the form of tire barriers, and sandbags are waiting for you. All this is embellished with unusual sound and light effects. The floating fog gives a feeling of mystery and warms you to the fight you will fight with your family or a group of friends. And one more thing - you can be sure that you will come out unscathed from the fight at the Laser Tag Center Kwatera Główna!
4. MovieGate - the underground of Plac Solny
Maybe do you want to go underground in Wrocław? MovieGate is located in the basement of Plac Solny, right next to the Wrocław Market Square. It is difficult to clearly define what MovieGate is - you can say that by going to one attraction, we will experience as many as three different kinds of sensations! A lover of movies, history and science, will find a place here. You will find there authentic props and costumes from the plans of the world's largest productions. In addition, we must not forget that we are in a real war shelter, so for this reason, there are also historical curiosities. Science enthusiasts, on the other hand, will be delighted in the section devoted to optical illusions.
5. Centrum Historii Zajezdnia (Depot History Centre)
This is one of the most important attractions of Wrocław - the exhibition, located in the renovated hall of the bus depot, presents the intertwined history of the post-war city and its inhabitants with the latest history. The exhibition is enriched with interactive elements - we will find here e.g. the famous "maluch" - Fiat 126p, a real RUCH kiosk, authentic cattle cars, and even a butcher shop! A visit to the "Zajezdnia" will be a must not only for history buffs.
6. Vertigo Jazz Club
If we are to relax, sipping delicious cocktails and listening to live music, this is the place! Vertigo is a real house of music where you can hear jazz concerts almost every day. The elegant interiors of the club are often also a space for other events, such as improvised theatre performances or artistic performances, and above all, a place to soothe the senses and - a trifle - in the city centre.
7. Indoor Golf Wrocław
The weather in Poland likes to play tricks, even in the middle of summer, but we have a safe option that will also work during heavy rain. Indoor Golf is a golf simulation. Instructors, if necessary, will teach you how to use a golf club. This place was created to show that playing golf is a sport for everyone - and by the way training, learning, competition and building a golf community. We assure you that modern simulators will make you feel like you are on a real golf course!
8. Bungee Wrocław
This is an idea only for the brave - bungee jumping in Wrocław will be something! Delightful instructors will prepare you for the jump - first you will go up to a height of 70 meters, admire the views of the entire city, and then make a jump that increases the level of adrenaline to sky-high values. The jump can be commemorated by recording it and taking photos during it - who wouldn't want such a souvenir from Wrocław?
Kłodzko Land - attraction
The Kłodzko Land is one of the most attractive tourist and natural regions of Lower Silesia. You will find a national park, mountains, caves, mines, museums, and rivers - in a word: everything that tourists are looking for and what is needed to have a great holiday. Finding the right attractions can take too long, and it's easy to get lost in the process - there are so many! That's why we chose the ones we think are the most interesting. Here they are!
9. Attractions of the Stronie Śląskie commune
Stronie Śląskie, located in the area of four mountain ranges and four river valleys, is a paradise mainly for those who like to spend time actively. We will find here a lot of hiking and cycling routes, running through the Śnieżnik Massif, the Bialskie Mountains, the Złote Mountains and Krowiarki. In Stronie Śląskie and its immediate vicinity, we will also find other attractions that we can visit in the meantime during a bicycle trip or a hiking trip.
One of them is the Bear Cave (Jaskinia Niedźwiedzia) - one of the most beautiful karst caves in Poland and certainly the most beautiful in Lower Silesia. It is also the longest cave in the entire Sudetes. 700 meters of the cave serves as a tourist route, where you can admire wonderful, rich and well-preserved dripstone forms - stalagmites, stalactites and stalagmites.
Another attraction in the area is the Zalew Stara Morawa. The over 5-hectare reservoir is located on the slope of Krzyżnik Mountain and surrounded by other mountains - hence the great interest in the lagoon. On site you will also find a marina with water equipment rental, a pier with a lookout tower for the surrounding mountain peaks, a campsite and accommodation. In the summer heat, this place is a must!
Radków and its immediate surroundings are located in the heart of the Table Mountains (Góry Stołowe) - one of the most interesting mountain ranges in Poland. You surely associate them with fantastic rocks in various shapes, which had the opportunity to be a film set for many productions, such as The Chronicles of Narnia.
In Karłów, located in the commune of Radków, there is the beginning of the most frequented route leading to the highest peak of the Table Mountains - Szczeliniec Wielki. There are 665 stone stairs leading to Szczeliniec, around which amazing views await!
The second must-see of the Stołowe Mountains are Błędne Skały, located on the Polish-Czech border, with corridors, tunnels and rock labyrinths carved in stone, which make a real sensation among adults and children. Squeezing through narrow gaps is a lot of fun! While walking between the rocks, squeezing through the cracks (sometimes even on your knees!), we also activate our imagination - in the rocks, you can notice various shapes and figures. The names of the rock blocks scattered over the area of 21 hectares also refer to their shapes.
And so, while overcoming the mazes, we can come across mushrooms, tables, tunnels, crow's feet or skulls. Let us remember that the Radków commune is not only mountain peaks - also drop by Wambierzyce, called the "Silesian Jerusalem".
11. Złoty Stok
Złoty Stok is a small but interesting town located in the heart of the Golden Mountains (Góry Złote), adjacent to the Czech Republic. We will find several attractions here, which in combination with a trip to Kłodzko, Kamieniec Ząbkowicki or Ząbkowice Śląskie, will give us a complete and complete holiday plan.
The Gold Mine in Złoty Stok (Kopalnia Złota w Złotym Stoku)
A mine by definition, and in practice, an all-day resort with lots of attractions for children and adults. A guide will lead us through the adits where gold was once mined and will tell the history of this place with his colourful story, full of humour.
In addition to curiosities, there is an underground slide, a ride on the underground mining railway, and with a bit of luck our faces will be touched by the water falling from the underground waterfall. Another attraction in the complex in Złoty Stok is the orange-yellow ocher-covered Ochrowa Adit (Sztolnia Ochrowa) and the Medieval Mining Settlement (Średniowieczna Osada Górnicza). In addition, children can enjoy attractions such as gold panning, minting coins, walking through the Path of Fear or visiting the Executioner's Chamber.
The City Tourist Route in Złoty Stok
On the market square in Złoty Stok, eco-friendly retro melexes are waiting for you - replicas of the Ford Buick that drove the streets of Złoty Stok at the beginning of the 20th century. During the tour you will see the mint building and beautiful monuments of sacral nature and one of the oldest cemeteries in Poland. Historical tenement houses and winding streets hide more than one secret…
12. Attractions of the Bystrzyca Kłodzka commune
Bystrzyca Kłodzka is another must-see destination when visiting the Kłodzko Land. In the commune, there is Międzygórze, which we can associate with characteristic Tyrolean buildings and the most beautiful waterfall in the area. It is there, by the Wilczki Waterfall, that Dom Nad Wodospadem is located, which can be a great starting point for trips to Śnieżnik and the surrounding mountains.
Filumen Museum (Muzeum Filumenistyczne)
In Bystrzyca itself, however, we will visit the Filumen Museum - the only museum in Poland devoted to the collection of matchboxes and items used to start a fire. We also recommend visiting the centre of Bystrzyca - its Market Square, historic buildings, city walls and towers: Kłodzko and Knight's.
13. Ząbkowice Śląskie - the city of the leaning tower
The symbol of Ząbkowice Śląskie is the Leaning Tower (Krzywa Wieża) - one of several such towers in Poland. However, the one in Ząbkowice is the most crooked - it has as much as 2.14 m of deviation from the vertical. 139 stairs lead to its top, and after reaching the top, you can admire the views of the city and its surroundings. To this day, it is not known why the Leaning Tower is leaning. Pictures near the tower come out almost as well as the most famous leaning tower in the world - the Tower of Pisa.
Although we should associate Ząbkowice Śląskie primarily with the Leaning Tower, there are also other attractions in the city. In the oldest residential building in Ząbkowice - Dwór Kauffunga, you can not only sit on the dock among gravediggers, but visit the underground laboratory of the famous Dr. Frankenstein. It will be a scary but fascinating visit!
14. The town Bardo and Ski-Raft rafting
Bardo is a small but charming town with a climate reminiscent of an Italian town, which, despite the fact that it is not the most famous, has enough interesting attractions that will allow you to spend a whole day of fun.
On holiday days, we can take advantage of the weather by spending time on a pontoon trip through the beautiful valley of Nysa Kłodzka. The trip takes place along the Bardzkie Gorge and leads along five meanders of the Nysa Kłodzka River. In addition to the sound of water, great fun (someone has to row!), tourists can also count on communing with wild nature: there is a high probability that on the way, we will meet roe deer, herons, grebes or even wild boars. Plus green. Lots of greenery!
There are additional attractions in Bardo that you can see, if only you have a little more strength). An option for those who have saved energy during the rafting trip is to climb a cliff that offers spectacular views of Bardo and the surrounding area, while those who will not have the strength for this 20-minute climb can go for a walk in the centre of Bardo. There, we will be amazed by the sanctuary, atmospheric streets, as well as a complex of original rosary chapels.
15. Golden Trout fishery (Łowisko Złoty Pstrąg)
It's summer, you're just sitting on the shore of the fishery. But not just any kind - there are lots of greenery around, tall trees, shade, peace and quiet. After all, you are in the heart of the Kłodzko Valley - the trails of the Bardzkie Mountains, beautiful Kłodzko, magical Bardo, and the charming Ławica are waiting for you nearby. You are in Boguszyn, in Łowisko Złoty Pstrąg!
Let's continue the story - you are a bit like in another world. You could say - in the land of happiness. Where did this happiness come from? Well, from this ubiquitous peace, birds singing, from fish that you can catch yourself, and then fry and treat your palate. Do you want to come alone to enjoy the silence? No problem! Want to take your family? Please! Children will not be bored here. Time spent on stroking goats and zip-lining awaits them.
16. The Owl Mountains and the mysterious Osówka underground
Considered the most mysterious areas of Lower Silesia, the Owl Mountains hide many mysteries. One of the largest, still unexplained, is the presence of the Nazi Riese complex, composed of several independent parts.
One of them is the Underground City Osówka - the most advanced project in terms of construction in the Owl Mountains, Hitler's headquarters, about which little is known today. It was built by prisoners staying under the power of the occupier, but its role is still being discussed today. This is a place that fascinates more with each step taken underground - the most thought-provoking fact is that the entire underground city was created thanks to the work of people whose hands and primitive tools drilled successive corridors, centimetre by centimetre. Everyone should visit Osówka, even if they are not a big fan of history.
Polanica-Zdrój is a picturesque health resort in the Kłodzko Land. Here you will find peace in the comfort of the Zdrojowy Park, actively spend your time traversing the mountain paths on foot or by bike and relax in the treatment and rehabilitation complexes. The location of Polanica on the border of the Stołowe Mountains, the Bystrzyckie Mountains and the Kłodzko Valley makes it a city with extraordinary tourist potential. This is a place that is willingly visited not only by patients.
Families with children will spend time in FunPark in Polanica. It is an amusement park with huge inflatables, a zip line, a turret playground, sandpits and paddling pools with boats for younger children.
18. New Ruda
If you are planning a trip to Nowa Ruda, we have a list of places you must visit! The former Mine (Dawna Kopalnia Nowa Ruda) is an interesting attraction for both adults and children, who during the visit will learn the secrets of coal mining from scratch, for which, among other things, the region is famous. Whoever dreamed of becoming a miner in his childhood may not become one in the mine, but he will certainly get to know the work of a miner up close and even have the opportunity to ride the underground mining railway!
In addition, Nowa Ruda is also: the city centre with one of the most beautiful town halls in Lower Silesia, observation towers, the highest climbing wall in Poland and numerous hiking and biking trails.
19. Wild SPA - Duszniki-Zdrój (Dzikie Spa)
Looking for a place where you can calm down, take a deep breath and rest in the deepest sense of the word, we came across Dzikie Spa on the outskirts of Duszniki-Zdrój. It is difficult to describe in words what awaits the guests of the Wild Spa, but let's try - it is an outdoor sauna with a view of the mountains and forest, with a wood-burning stove. Drop by for sauna ceremonies, a relaxing bath in a bathtub on a fire, birch, oak, eucalyptus, mint and even nettle. Or maybe you will be persuaded to try crispy flatbreads from the fire. Here everything smells of forest - get ready for a real feast for the senses!
Karkonosze - visit Poland
There is much to say about the Karkonosze Mountains. The National Park, Śnieżka, Śnieżne Kotły, mountain trails - all this is at your fingertips. However, not everyone likes or can afford all-day hiking in the mountains. For those who want to stay not only in the bosom of the Karkonosze nature, we have several suggestions.
20. Mysteries of the Karkonosze Mountains (Karkonoskie Tajemnice)
The name "Karkonoskie Tajemnice" 100% reflects what we can expect in this place. The facility is dedicated to legends and stories about the Karkonosze Mountains. In the underground corridors, there is a multimedia exhibition referring to the Spirit of the Mountains, herbalists, Walloons and natural treasure hunters. Inside we will find, for example, a harp with invisible strings, the largest sculpture in Poland depicting the Spirit of the Mountains, we will brew our own elixir, look for the philosopher's stone and dispel storm clouds with a drum.
21. Śnieżka Parrot House in Karpacz (Papugarnia Śnieżka Karpacz)
And if you want to have a good time talking with extraordinary friends, you have to come to Papugarnia Śnieżka in Karpacz. The parrot team consists of as many as 12 different species of parrots - all of them are able to steal the hearts of their guests. Parrots like to sit everywhere, so you have to look under your feet and be ready that one of the birds will suddenly land on your shoulder. Luring the bird to you is not difficult - it is enough to have food in your hand, and they will gladly come to visitors.
22. Little Japan - Japanese Garden Siruwia in Przesieka (Mała Japonia - Ogród∂ Japoński Siruwia)
In the heart of the Karkonosze Mountains, at an altitude of 600 m above sea level. The Japanese Garden is delightful with its richness of plants and harmonious composition. Shrubs, flowers, trees, ponds - everything here harmonizes with each other, creating a space full of peace, called by some even an oasis. The entire garden is designed in accordance with the principles of "feng shui", and in addition to Far Eastern garden accents, we will find the "Samurai" Museum - a knight of ancient Japan. It is one of the largest collections of Japanese armor in Poland, and one of the most important exhibits is an 800-year-old sword. An additional attraction is the Art Museum Bonsai - created for and by connoisseurs of garden art, a unique collection of fascinating bonsai trees, some of which were imported straight from the Land of the Rising Sun and are over 100 years old.
This is an idea for family entertainment - this is where the Spirit of the Mountains will lead you through the Karkonosze trails, only in a slightly smaller edition. You will get to know the Karkonosze peaks, the Okraj Pass, the Rock Table or the Kamieńczyk Waterfall. All this is interspersed with the field game "GIGAPRZYGODA, which not only entertains, but also teaches in an accessible way. Its completion results in obtaining the "GIGANTEI Discoverer" medal. Children will feel like real explorers - perhaps they will solve the mystery of huge insects found in Gigantei?
24. Forest Glassworks (Leśna Huta)
The Karkonosze Mountains are also famous for their centuries-old glassmaking tradition - one of the most interesting is Leśna Huta in Szklarska Poręba. Before the eyes of the spectators, hand-formed vases, dishes and glass ornaments are made here. However, this is not the end - apart from the fact that you can watch the work of a steelworker, you can also experience on your own skin what it's like to work in a steelwork. Glass decorating workshops, baubles painting and hot glass workshops are waiting for tourists.
25. Juna Earth Museum (Muzeum Ziemi Juna)
Juna Earth Museum - Walloon Watchtower collects treasures found by Walloon prospectors in its collections. In addition to local minerals - from Lower Silesia and those from other parts of the world, we will meet medieval treasure hunters of the mountains - Walloons, we will see here e.g. alchemist's room, a Walloon adit, Walloon washers, and we will even play the Great Parade Drum. On-site, you can take part in the mineralogical workshop "What is in the rocks?"
26. The Mineralogical Museum in Szklarska Poręba (Muzeum Mineralogiczne w Szklarskiej Porębie)
Apart from mountain trails, it is worth visiting the Mineralogical Museum in Szklarska Poręba, which collects nearly 3,000 minerals and fossils from around the world. The hit is an exhibit from space - the Gibeon meteorite! In the museum you can also admire the skeletons and fossils of dinosaurs - it will be a perfect place for younger (and older!) adventure seekers and those fascinated by prehistory.
27. Melexes Koń-Rad in Szklarska Poręba
Horse-drawn carriages in Poland have a bad reputation, which is why in the Karkonosze Mountains, live horses were replaced with mechanical horses - electric melexes. This is entertainment mainly for people with limited mobility who are unable to reach the peaks on their own. Retro melexes will take you to the highest and most beautiful waterfall
Horse-drawn carriages in Poland have a bad reputation, which is why in the Karkonosze Mountains, live horses were replaced with mechanical horses - electric melexes. This is entertainment mainly for people with limited mobility who are unable to reach the peaks on their own. Retro melex cars will take you to the highest and most beautiful waterfall in Lower Silesia - the Kamieńczyk Waterfall.
Located somewhere between the Karkonosze Mountains, Rudawy Janowickie and the Jeleniogórska Valley on the Jedlica River, Kowary is a city with an industrial history. Seemingly not very conspicuous, a typical Lower Silesian town, on the other hand, is full of tourist "flavours".
Museum of Sentiments (Muzeum Sentymentów)
One of them is the Museum of Sentiments. This is no ordinary museum with boring exhibits and hard-to-understand art. Here, art is created by ordinary everyday objects from years ago. For some, it is a teleportation to the everyday life of those years, for others, the whole childhood, and for the youngest, "prehistory". You will remember what the "Frania" washing machine looked like, how many things fit in the wall units, obligatory in every home living room from years ago, how fast the meat grinder mounted on the tabletop was, or how thick the TV box was, which was displayed only in black and white. And this is just a drop in the ocean of exhibits flowing to the Museum from all over the region.
Park of Miniatures Monuments of Lower Silesia Kowary (Park Miniatur Zabytków Dolnego Śląska w Kowarach)
It is a collection of miniature monuments of Lower Silesia built-in 1:25 or 1:50 scale: churches, castles, palaces, town halls, and mountain shelters, where every detail is presented with the greatest care. The miniatures are surrounded by trees and bushes, which additionally make the walk along the park alleys even more pleasant. Among the miniatures, we can find such objects as the Wang Temple, Chojnik Castle, Observatory on Śnieżka, Książ Castle or the Palace in Moszna. In total, we will see 60 thumbnails, which will take about two hours to watch - admit that you have never visited so many places at once so quickly!
Jizera Mountains (Góry Izerskie)
The Jizera Mountains are visited almost as willingly as the Karkonosze Mountains. During a trip to the Jizera Mountains, we can go to places such as Wysoki Grzbiet, Wysoki Kamień, Szklarska Poręba, Jakuszyce, Piechowice or the shelters: Izerski Stóg, Chatki Górzystów or Schronisko Orle. An important center in the Jizera Mountains is also…
29. Świeradów-Zdrój and Sky Walk
Świeradów is one of the most frequently visited spa towns in this area. In addition to the health resort, which has an over 70-meter walking hall, Świeradów also has several other attractions. One of them is the Sky Walk, which allows you to admire the landscapes from a height of 62 meters. From the top, there is a view of the romantic buildings of the Świeradów health resort and the stunning nature. The structure is an 850-meter walk, which will be enhanced by additional surprises such as a drop-shaped mesh, a glass platform that gives the impression that our body is floating in the air, or a 105-meter slide that will bring us back to earth in a few seconds. Sky Walk is also the only path in the clouds in Poland, which can also be walked at night. It is subtly lit and makes an even greater impression!
30. Berga - rafting in Nielestno
Lower Silesia also has the most beautiful rivers, and the Bóbr River is just that! Are you tempted to relax in the form of a pontoon or canoe trip through the beautiful Bóbr Valley Landscape Park? Come to the BERGA rafting in Nielestno. We promise it will be beautiful! Two routes have been prepared for tourists: a longer, 10-kilometre route, which will take about 2.5 hours and a shorter, 6-kilometre route. Remember to book in advance by phone!
31. Canoeing on the Bóbr river (Kajakiem po Bobrze)
A similar amount of emotions will be provided by kayaking on the Bóbr River, also in Nielestno. Kayaks, however, are an option for those who prefer more adrenaline. We will not mention the views of the beautiful, picturesque Bóbr valley. :)
32. Krośnice Narrow Gauge Railway (Krośnicka Kolej Wąskotorowa)
Maybe a ride on the Krośnicka Narrow-Gauge Railway? The cable car runs on weekends - it's best to choose one where the weather will be good. However, Krośnice is not only a cable car. It is also a beautiful park with lots of ponds around, clean air, a gastro zone, a playground for children, bike rental, and a barbecue shelter. An additional attraction (if we do not decide to ride bicycles) is a ride in a slow-moving vehicle (melex) through the beautiful, green Barycz Valley.
33. Railway Museum in Silesia (Muzeum Kolejnictwa na Śląsku w Jaworzynie Śląskiej)
All lovers of the old railway are invited to the Railway Museum in Jaworzyna Śląska. The museum is located in the oldest railway junction in Lower Silesia, and it must be admitted - there is a lot to see! On 3 km of tracks, there are as many as 150 historical railway vehicles - locomotives, wagons and specialist vehicles from the 19th and 20th centuries. The pride of the collection is a historic, efficient steam locomotive, unique railcars and historic Polish locomotives. And if you're lucky, you might get a ride on a historic rolling stock.
34. ZOO Łączna - World of Lemurs
Children will love this place! It is the only mountain zoo in the country and the only one that has a group of arctic wolves. From the definition of a zoo, however, a more accurate term would be: "a garden with the option of resting among animals from around the world." The main attraction of this place are the lemurs that you can touch, feed and take photos. We will also meet kangaroos, marmots, prairie dogs, meerkats, fennec foxes, porcupines, tigers, lynxes, gibbons, antelopes, sheep and many other animals.
The Małopolskie Voivodeship has the largest number of national parks in Poland - we will find here the most magnificent and certainly the most famous mountains in Poland, the vastness of nature reserves, old castles, rivers, and spas. All this means that every year Małopolska is visited by over 13-15 million tourists.
35. Kraków and its surroundings
The attractions of Kraków cannot be mentioned in a short note - the must-see points of a trip to Krakow will undoubtedly be the Old Town with the Cloth Hall and St. Mary's Church, the Barbican, St. Florian's Gate and the Wawel Royal Castle, as well as the iconic Kazimierz or Kościuszko Mound. Where is it worth going if you have a few days at your disposal and want to go outside the city?
36. The Wieliczka Salt Mine
The Wieliczka Salt Mine is probably the most famous tourist mine in Poland and one of the most magnificent, as evidenced by its presence on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Described in the rankings as one of the seven wonders of Poland, the mine is eagerly visited by tourists from all over the world. The tourist route leads through underground chambers, brine lakes and the iconic Chapel of St. Kinga. Tourists climbing over 800 steps not only visit the nooks and crannies of the mine but also learn about its history, old mining tools and machines. The route is 3.5 km long and goes 135 meters into the ground. If you are interested in salt crystals, where the salt came from in this place and how it is possible that such wonders were created underground - be sure to write this place on your holiday list!
Energylandia in Zator is the largest amusement park in our country - one day is not enough to take advantage of each of the attractions! There are as many as 6 zones here: family - of a moderate degree, where whole families will have the best fun, Fairytale Land - a zone for the youngest, arranged in a fairy-tale atmosphere, extreme zone - available for those who are not afraid of the maximum level of adrenaline, Water Park - a tropical island, Dragon City - a zone stylized as a medieval town and the newest, mysterious island in the middle of the ocean - Aqualantis. In the park you will use roller coasters, including the largest, 77-meter Hyperion, accelerating up to 142 km/h, the world's largest wooden roller coaster or the Speed Water Coaster - a 60-meter roller coaster whose route is crossed by water obstacles.
Who among us doesn't know the Three Crowns (Trzy Korony)? Or the magical Sokolica or the Homole Gorge? Or wonderfully located castles-neighbours: Czorsztyn and Niedzica Castles? The Pieniny Mountains are a great idea for holidays in the bosom of nature - because there is probably no better combination than mountains + water!
38. Raft Rafting (Spływ tratwą)
Going to Pieniny and not taking the Dunajec rafting trip is like going to Paris and not seeing the Eiffel Tower. The trip starts at the rafting harbour in Sromowce Kąty or at the harbour in Sromowce Niżne and ends in Szczawnica or Krościenko. Rafting lasts consecutively 2 hours. 15 minutes or 2 hours 45 minutes. And why is it worth going rafting? First of all, the charms of the Pieniny National Park are indescribable in words! Admiring the wild nature unchanged for hundreds of years from the level of a rafting raft is a great adventure for those who do not like long hiking trips. Secondly - we don't have to go on a raft at all! If we are looking for more excitement, we can choose rafting - rafting in this area has recently been very popular and safe, even if we have children on board. If we add beautiful weather, ubiquitous greenery and roaring water to this, it turns out that we have quite an interesting recipe for a family trip.
39. Spiska Kraina in Niedzica
The Spiska Kraina Family Amusement Park in Niedzica is an offer for families with children. We will find here a rope park, Monkey Grove, bouncy castles, slides, tunnels, obstacle courses, a 3D planetarium, laser paintball in the theme of Star Wars, 12D Cinema, pontoon tracks and Golden Bungee or a Miniature Park of nearby monuments. All attractions are interspersed with references to history - the park is supposed to teach and entertain, so it is the best solution when it comes to spending time with children. In the park, there is also Zadyma Karczma, serving regional dishes and - for parents - craft beers.
Niedzica is one of, if not the most visited town in the Pieniny Mountains. An obvious and obligatory point of a trip to Niedzica is the Castle from the 4th century! The stronghold is located on a limestone hill, 80 meters above the Dunajec River (Lagoon Czorsztyn), thanks to which the views from the top are breathtaking! After visiting the castle walls, you can go to Lake Czorsztyńskie, which is the second most important attraction of the village. Cruise ships sail on the lake, and sandy beaches are created on the shore, where you can relax, lying down and admiring the views of the Niedzica Castle or Czorsztyn. Therefore, everyone will find a place in Niedzica - both the one who prefers a quiet rest and the adventurer who overcomes the trails and conquers medieval castles.
Szczawnica is a spa town located on the Grajcarek stream. But don't let the word "health resort" fool you - this is of course one of the reasons why tourists come to Szczawnica, but the city also has attractions that can be used not only by patients. After a walk along Dietla Square and park alleys and the promenade over Grajcarek, it is worth going to Palenica, which can be reached by cable car or climbed after less than an hour's walk. In Szczawnica, it is also worth renting a bicycle, which will be useful during a trip around the area on sunny days. However, a walk along the Dunajec gorge can be replaced by a rafting trip, which leads between high, even 300-meter-high limestone walls. We leave the choice to you, although in our opinion it is best not to limit yourself and use both options because each of them brings different emotions and impressions.
Opolskie Voivodeship, for reasons incomprehensible to us, is often overlooked as an attractive tourist region of our country. We believe that this is due to ignorance about the attractions of Opole. And yet both the city itself and its surroundings can turn out to be a great place to spend a holiday. We will find here castles, palaces, monuments, hiking trails, and landscape parks - everything that tourists need to spend valuable time on our Opole land.
Opole and its surroundings
Opole is associated primarily as a place of music festivals, but there are more attractions for tourists. Opole's musical traditions are reminded of by the Amphitheater, which years ago was the venue for the largest musical events in Poland. Being in Opole, we must of course, not forget about the charming market square full of colourful tenement houses or the characteristic Groszowy Bridge, hung with padlocks. In addition, on a sunny day, it is worth going to the Bolko Island and the Opole Zoo, which are called the green lungs of Opole. Not without reason - it's thanks to the park bursting with greenery, piers and the river.
42. Museum of Polish Song in Opole
The Museum of Polish Song also refers to the "musical" history of Opole. Even if we do not consider ourselves to be fans of Polish hits, after visiting the museum there is a risk that we will slightly change our minds. With the help of music walls with monitors displaying music videos, fragments of concerts, reports or television programs, we are able to trace the history of Polish songs from the 1920s to the present day. There are also lenses in the walls through which we can see the historical background of a given period. The biggest attraction of the Museum, however, is song recording booths that record the visitor's favourite song and which can then be sent in an e-mail as a souvenir of the visit to the Museum.
43. The Piast Tower in Opole
The Piast Tower is one of the symbols of Opole and the last remnant of the now non-existent Piast Castle. After climbing 165 stairs from a height of about 35 meters, you can admire the panorama of the city and its immediate surroundings. You enter the tower in the company of a guide who tells you about the history of Opole.
44. Moszna Castle
Located 30 km from Opole, the Castle, or rather the Palace in Moszna, is one of the most beautiful Polish castles. It looks like a castle from the Disney intro - this is due to the charming towers and turrets, which are said to be as many as 99!
The castle was made as a fulfilment of the fantasy of the author Franz-Hubert Tiele-Winckler. I have to admit that it turned out well for him - standing at the threshold of the palace, we have the impression that we are about to cross the threshold of the real world and find ourselves in a fairy tale. This impression is complemented by the fact that there is a vast, 20-hectare park with ancient oaks and lime trees next to the castle. Walking through the park alleys and looking into the legendary 365 rooms of the castle, we will feel like real princes and princesses! The castle can be visited on your own or with a guide who will reveal the secrets hidden by the walls of the Moszna Castle.
45. Robot Factory
Leaving the castle part, further wandering around Moszna will lead us to the Robot Factory. This is the only such place in our country and in Europe, where we can admire with our own eyes huge, steel robots built by one man! Looking at what came out of the author's hand, it's hard to believe that it was made from car scrap and other waste that could have ended up in a landfill and ended up as a tourist attraction.
46. JuraPark Krasiejów
Located less than 30 km from Opole, Krasiejów will be a great destination for people (especially those of school age) who want to spend a spring weekend combining learning with fun. Krasiejów Science and Entertainment Park is the largest outdoor prehistory park in Europe - on 40 hectares there are about 250 models of dinosaurs, a 5D cinema, a prehistoric 3D oceanarium, a pavilion with authentic dinosaur bones and a multimedia museum dedicated to the history of man's appearance on earth.
47. Knight's Castle in Byczyna (Gród Rycerski w Byczynie)
Are you interested in what life was like in the Middle Ages? How was paper made in the past? How was archery trained? What did medieval skis look like? How did the children spend their time? You will learn all this in the Knights' Castle in Byczyn - a place where you will move several hundred years back to the times of medieval Poland.
48. Museum of the Opole Village (Muzeum Wsi Opolskiej)
Drop into the open-air museum showing how people lived at the beginning of the 20th century. The museum has existed since 1970 and since then new exhibitions are constantly being collected there. These are individual architectural objects, but also whole homesteads with reconstructed vegetation, vegetable and herb gardens and farm animals.
49. The Lake District
It is no secret that the region of the Lubuskie Voivodeship is famous for its large number of clean lakes. There are over 600 of them here! The most important ones include Sławskie, Trześniowskie, Niesłysz, Głębokie, Łagowskie and Ciecz lakes. Most of them can boast of their accommodation base and additional attractions that will allow you to plan even a few days' vacations. Around the lakes, the green forests, clean water and wonderful flora and fauna should be appreciated the most. It is a real oasis for tourists who want to swim, but also for sailors.
50. Łagów Castle
Apart from beautiful lakes, the Lubuskie Voivodeship can boast of monuments. One of the leading facilities in this category is the Joannite Castle in Łagów - an 18th-century building with a charming courtyard, surrounded by a park and the said lakes. Today, there is a hotel and restaurant there, the services of which are definitely worth using.
51. Mużaków Park and Muskau Arch Geopark (Park Mużakowski i Geopark Łuk Mużakowa)
Geopark "Łuk Mużakowa" was created on the site of a former open-pit mine - for this simple reason, we will find here colourful lakes. There is a geotouristic path, "Former Babina Mine" with information boards, sheds and even an observation tower. Geopark is on the list of UNESCO World Geoparks. On the other hand, Muskauer Park, spreading over 728 hectares on the Polish and German sides of the border, is the largest park in the English style in the country. In 2004, the park was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
52. Międzyrzecz Fortified Region (Międzyrzecki Rejon Umocniony)
Have we already mentioned the monuments in Lubuskie? The Międzyrzecz Fortified Region is a huge system of post-German fortifications that today can be explored on one of four routes: long, short, extreme and surface. On the routes, you can also meet bats, which especially like to live in cool and dark bunkers. On the route in Pniewo, there is also an open-air museum of military equipment, an exhibition hall with historical and natural exhibits of the MRU, and even an underground trolley.
53. Attractions of Poznań
We have the impression that Poznań is slightly underestimated by tourists. It's a shame because it's a really beautiful city! Starting from the colourful tenement houses in the Market Square, through the famous goat, to Lake Maltańskie. It is one of the few places that can boast of a lake in the middle of the city!
In addition, the "to see" list must include the Citadel Park, the Imperial Castle with a beautiful garden, the Fara in Poznań, the Royal Castle, Plac Wolności, Ostrów Tumski and a small but very grateful district of Poznań - Śródka with an iconic mural. While in Poznań, it is also worth considering a visit to the ZOO and a ride on the Maltanka Narrow-Gauge Railway. A visit to the Interactive Center for the History of Ostrów Tumski "Brama Poznania" will also be obligatory.
Being in Poznań and not trying St. Martin's croissant is like being in Toruń and not trying gingerbread - so also save the Poznań Croissant Museum, where guests will not only learn the history of this delicacy but will also have the opportunity to bake croissants together with native Poznań residents.
54. Castles and Palaces of Wielkopolska
While in Wielkopolska, do not forget to visit the local monuments such as the Castle in Kórnik, the Palace in Rogalin, the Palace in Śmiełów, the Koszuty Manor or the Gołuchów Castle. Everyone is different, but they have one thing in common - a fascinating history and beautiful interiors. In the palace in Rogalin, you will certainly be surprised by the interiors of the library - but this is not the only surprise that awaits you in palaces and castles in Wielkopolska!
55. Guido Mine in Zabrze (Kopalnia Guido w Zabrzu)
It is no secret that we associate Upper Silesia as a coal basin. Some of the mines are still operating today, but there are also closed mines that have been given a new life - tourist life! Such a place is the Historic Guido Mine and the Queen Luiza Adit (Sztolnia Królowa Luiza), which form a complex in Zabrze. In the Queen Luiza Adit, you will not only get to know the underground kingdom of machines but also take an underground boat trip. This is the longest underground rafting trip in Poland! The almost two-hour trip is beautifully lit corridors, plants growing in the dark, the sounds of dripping water, sparkling, powerful coal deposits and relaxation in a slightly rocking boat.
56. Funzeum in Gliwice
57. Silesian castles
Let us remember that the Trail of the Eagles' Nests stretches from Silesia to Lesser Poland, and there are many castles on it that deserve the attention of tourists. Among them, we can mention the Ogrodzieniec Castle, the Castle in Bobolice, in Mirów, Będzin, Siewierz, Olsztyn, Toszek, Chudów Castle, and the castle in Pszczyna.
58. Silesian Beskids (Beskid Śląski)
One of the most beautiful Polish mountain ranges is visited for the peaks: Skrzyczne, Barania Góra, Czantoria and Klimczok. There are of course many more - some are even available for small children, including those in prams. It is also worth visiting the small homeland of Adam Małysz - Wisła, where a waterfall on Wisełka was formed on Lake Czerniańskie. In addition, the list should include Kozia Góra in Bielsko Biała, Szczyrk, Istebna, Równica, Krzakoska Skała hanging on Kobyla with a charming love bench or Malinowska Skała.
59. Park Gródek in Jaworzno
Called by tourists "Polish Maldives", Park Gródek is located in an old quarry. Its steep walls and blue water attract tourists from all over Poland. Wooden footbridges create a path that, if the weather is right, will be about 20 cm underwater. A walk with wet feet becomes even more pleasant when we look around. There are really nice views all around!
West Pomeranian Voivodeship
60. Amber Museum in Kołobrzeg
To be at the Polish seaside and not come across amber - you won't succeed! In addition to the iconic lighthouse, the Museum of Polish Arms, the fishing port, the Kołobrzeg Maritime Open-Air Museum and historic red brick buildings, it is worth visiting the Amber Museum, called the Gold of the North. You will learn here where it comes from, how amber is processed or how amber jewellery is made. By the way, you will be able to buy some amber souvenirs.
The ruins of the church in Trzęsacz are the most famous ruins of this type in Europe. At the turn of the 14th and 15th centuries, a Gothic church was built here, originally erected 1.8-2 km from the seashore on a high cliff. Over the years, the coast has been destroyed, and today only a fragment of the southern wall remains of the church. Currently, the cliff is secured against further landslides - the remaining wall would almost collapse!
62. Attractions of Szczecin
In the capital of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, it is definitely worth going to the Jasna Błonia and the impressive Kasprowicz Park, to the Renaissance Pomeranian Dukes' Castle, to rest by the Emerald Lake, to the underground exhibition about the latest history of the city - Przełomy Dialogue Center, or to the iconic Waly Chrobrego, which is currently one of one of the most beautiful observation decks in Europe. If you were wondering where the oldest cinema in the world is located - we also invite you to Szczecin, to the "Pionier" cinema. It is also worth going to Łasztownia and seeing the famous Dźwigozaurs, which have become a permanent part of the landscape of this city.
63. Teutonic Castle in Malbork (Zamek Krzyżacki w Malborku)
In addition to beautiful, white, sandy beaches and obvious attractions such as Klif Orłowski or the famous Hel, we encourage you to explore the monuments of the Pomeranian Voivodeship! One of the leading ones is the Teutonic Castle in Malbork, which is the largest castle in Poland and the most powerful fortress in medieval Europe. It is one of the gems on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Destroyed by about 60% during World War II, it was rebuilt, and today, it delights tourists from all over the world. And the location on the Nogat River… You have to be there!
64. Railway Museum in Kościerzyna
Located right next to the Kashubian Landscape Park, Kościerzyna is known primarily for the Railway Museum, which is one of the branches of the Museum of the Kościerzyna Land (the other two are the Museum of the Accordion and the Museum of the Kościerzyna Land). The museum has the most numerous (and not all!) exhibitions of rail vehicles in this part of Poland. We will find here 45 units of rolling stock and a locomotive depot with workshop rooms - a treat for all railway enthusiasts.
65. Moving dunes in Łeba (Ruchome Wydmy w Łebie)
You don't have to go to Africa to feel like you are in the Sahara! In the Słowiński National Park, between the sea and Lake Łebsko, there are Moving Dunes, which move a few meters every year, filling up subsequent forest areas. The highest dune is Łącka Góra, from the top of which, from a height of 42 meters, you can admire the views of the sea, the lake and the desert landscape created by the dunes.
66. Kashubia (Kaszuby)
It is also worth visiting the native Kashubians while in Pomerania. Some of them still use their own language, the understanding of which, for an outsider, will not be such a simple matter! In Kashubia, apart from the aforementioned Kościerzyna and Moving Dunes, it is worth visiting the Wdzydze Landscape Park, the Kartuska Collegiate Church, the Castle in Bytów, the open-air museum in Szymbark, the Medieval Settlement in Sławutowo and the Teutonic Castle in Gniew. Also, remember that Kashubia is an idyllic land full of lakes, greenery, moraine hills and breathtaking views.
Gdańsk undoubtedly deserves a separate point, although it is still Kaszuby. It is one of the most beautiful cities in our country. Apart from the famous Neptune's Fountain, the City Hall, the Royal Route and the oldest and largest surviving crane of medieval Europe - the Crane in Gdańsk, one should also mention Długie Pobrzeże full of cafes, restaurants and pubs. In Gdańsk, it is also worth remembering to visit Westerplatte and the Museum of the Second World War, the Oliwa Cathedral, the park in Gdańsk-Oliwa, and St. Mary's Basilica. If you are planning a trip with children, Hevelianum - an interactive science centre will work well.
68. Toruń - the city of Copernicus and Gingerbread
Copernicus and Gingerbread perfectly summarizes what the city of Toruń offers us. Let's start with the old red-brick town, which is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. There we will find the second most famous leaning tower in Poland after Ząbkowice. In the market square itself, it is worth seeing the Old Town Hall, the Artus Court Cultural Center, the District Museum and the statue of Nicolaus Copernicus. It is because of this gentleman that today, there is a planetarium here, which is also worth visiting to delve into the secrets of space. In addition, it is worth paying attention to the city gates, the granary building, and the ruins of the Teutonic castle. We saved the best for last. That is - the most delicious! That is the Living Museum of Gingerbread and the Museum of Toruń Gingerbread. Both places are sweet and fragrant!
69. Biskupin settlement (Osada Biskupin)
Those willing to travel to the times of the first Piast dynasty are sent to the Archaeological Museum in Biskupin - it is a large, 38-hectare area with numerous traces of ancient settlements from the Stone Age to the early Middle Ages. In the Settlement, there will be an opportunity to see with your own eyes the tools that our ancestors used and see how their everyday life went.
You can start sightseeing in Bydgoszcz from the Bydgoszcz Cathedral and the granaries on the Brda River, which are the symbol of the city. In addition, Bydgoszcz will delight you with tenement houses and buildings - the vast majority of them are renovated, finely decorated, often Art Nouveau buildings, from which it is difficult to take your eyes off. The Museum of Soap and the History of Dirt is also worth a visit - yes, you see it right! Even the dirt has got its own museum, and it's at its best!
71. Bory Tucholskie
Bory Tucholskie is an area partly located in Pomerania and partly in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. It is a refuge for nature lovers - a huge forest area forces you to slow down and immerse yourself in the greenery of the trees. Being in the area of Bory Tucholskie, be sure to climb the Trzebciny observation tower, hiking trails and educational paths such as Jelenia Wyspa or the Path in the Brda River Valley Reserve, visit Czersk, Chojnice and nature reserves and water reservoirs where you can relax, for example, fishing and rafting by kayak.
72. The Land of the Great Lakes
We probably won't lie if we say that Masuria is associated with lakes. There are almost 2600 of them here! Among them, the largest Polish lake - Śniardwy, Niegocin, Roś, Tałty and Mamry lakes should be mentioned. In addition to sailing and other water sports, there is a lot to do here: it is worth taking a bike with you to use the trails marked out, for example, in the Piska Forest. It is also worth visiting the most important Masurian cities: Giżycko, Pisz, Mikołajki. It is worth going to Masuria with slow travel in mind.
73. Wilczy Szaniec and Mamerki
Apart from the lakes, the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship may prove to be an interesting destination for history fans. At this point, it is worth mentioning the Wolf's Lair and the Mamerki bunker complex, which were quarters for the troops of the Third Reich. It was Wolf's Lair that was the most guarded facility during the war - Hitler himself spent over 800 days there. There was even an unsuccessful attempt on his life.
74. Elbląg Canal (Kanał Elbląski)
It is one of the pride of water technology, recognized as a historical monument at the same time. No wonder - it is in vain to look for a place in other places in Poland, and even in Europe, where you can take a ship cruise on ... land! This solution was forced due to the height difference (over 100 meters!) between the two reservoirs. In addition to the peculiar cruise, tourists will be able to hear the stories of the captain who reveals details about the Elbląg Canal.
75. Railway bridges in Stańczyki
After seeing the railway bridges in Stańczyki, it may seem that we are in Rome because they look exactly like Roman aqueducts, but after getting closer, it turns out that a railway line was supposed to run here over 100 years ago. These are one of the greatest railway bridges in our country, and they are located in the beautiful surroundings of the Romnicka Forest. Interestingly, you can bungee jump from them. But this option is only for the brave.
76. Białystok - the city of murals
Lying on 7 hills, Białystok is the capital of the Podlaskie Voivodeship. The Branicki Palace, called the Polish Versailles, is impressive, but it is not the only architectural attraction of this city. It is also worth visiting the Great Gate "Gryf", the church of St. Nicholas, the impressive gardens of the Podlasie Opera and Philharmonic, as well as the city centre. While walking through the city, pay attention to the murals in Bialystok. The most famous are "Girl with a watering can", "Send a postcard to Grandma", "Interpenetration", "Bisons" or "Weaved with Multiculturalism". Because that's what Białystok is like - woven from different religions, cultures and nations.
77. Orthodox churches of Podlasie (Cerkwie Podlasia)
Since we are talking about multiculturalism, Orthodox churches are a great testimony to it. The ones that are definitely worth visiting are the Orthodox churches in Narew, Puchły, Nowa Wola, Odrynki, Trześcianka and Łosinka. All colourful, beautiful and inviting to go inside.
78. Podlasie National Parks
Podlaskie Voivodeship can boast of the presence of as many as 4 national parks: Białowieża, Biebrzański, Narwiański and Wigierski. Each of them is a separate story and a separate list of attractions. One thing is certain - Podlasie is one of the few so pristine places in our country where man and nature do not interfere with each other.
79. Land of Open Shutters (Kraina Otwartych Okiennic)
In addition to colourful Orthodox churches in Podlasie, you can come across original cottages from many years ago. Interestingly, you can still admire the carved decorations, which are present on the said shutters. The trail leads through the villages of Puchły, Soce and Trześcianka.
80. Capital city
A visit to Mazovia and not entering our capital would be an unforgivable sin! After all, we have a lot of attractions here: the old town, the Royal Route, the Palace of Culture and Science, Łazienki Park, the iconic Copernicus Science Center, the Warsaw Uprising Museum, the Wilanów Palace, the Planetarium, the Multimedia Fountain Park, Królikarnia, the Saxon Garden, and the Ethnographic Museum. This is just a substitute - the list of attractions in Warsaw is long, so it's worth exploring the topic.
81. Modlin Fortress
Warsaw is a centre of modernity, technology and development. However, when we go outside the city, completely different attractions await us. One of them is the Modlin Fortress - a military pearl of Europe, the longest building, which is a historical monument of defensive architecture, located at the confluence of the Vistula and Narew rivers. This is a place not only for history enthusiasts - every Pole should simply be here!
82. Visiting a moose - Kampinos National Park
In the vicinity of the Modlin Fortress, there is the Kampinos National Park - a refuge for busy and tired tourists who dream of slowing down. We will find numerous hiking and cycling routes here - you can go camping on one of the twelve shared clearings, equipped with sheds, benches and benches. Under normal conditions, it will be difficult to meet an elk - a symbol of the Kampinos National Park. But who knows, maybe you'll get lucky?
83. Park Arkadia in Nieborów
Although the Łódź Voivodeship is associated with post-industrial landscapes, there is no shortage of natural "flavours" here.
One of them is Park Arkadia - this name is not without reason! It is a fairy-tale place - a romantic garden in the English style, where you can feel like in a fairy tale. A completely different style is represented by the baroque garden in Nieborów and the palace, which is one of the largest magnate residences in the country.
84. Łęczyca Castle
The fourteenth-century castle in Łęczyca, erected by King Casimir the Great on an artificial hill, houses one of the most famous exhibitions dedicated to the Devil Boruta - it is due to the surroundings of wetlands, over which there is a thick fog that Boruta often prowled in this area. But is the devilish figure still hiding in today's Łęczyca? You have to check it on the spot!
85. Experymentarium in Łódź
We invite all young scientists to the Łódź Experymentarium, located in Manufaktura, a building that is a symbol of Łódź. Here, little explorers learn about the processes taking place in the world through fun - they can test their intellect, see how the world of people and animals works.
86. EC1 Planetarium
This is another fascinating place that you can watch with your mouth open. This time it's about space - thanks to the huge spherical screen, we are able to take a space walk. The screen produces a picture of the actual state of the sky in relation to the season, and the employees of the planetarium tell us what constellations we are seeing and what legends are associated with particular constellations.
87. Chęciny Castle
Built at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries, the royal castle resembles the Titanic - its three towers attract tourists from afar. It is one of the most interesting monuments of the Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, which additionally offers unforgettable views of the Świętokrzyski Region. It is true that we will have to climb a little bit to the top, but without a doubt, the effort is worth it!
88. Sabat Krajno - Amusement and Miniatures Park
Sabat Krajno is an attraction for families with children - one of the largest amusement parks of this type in Poland. The alley of miniatures awaits children - the country's largest miniature park with replicas of the most important European buildings, a rope park with routes of varying difficulty, an amusement park with inflatables, boats and pedal boats, and a 6D cinema.
89. Paradise Cave (Jaskinia Raj)
This is one of the most beautiful karst caves in the country. The tourist route is not long, it is only 180 meters long, but it is enough to admire the richness of stalactites, stalagmites and stalagmites formed in the interior of the earth. There can be up to 200 of them on one square meter!
90. Kadzielnia Reserve
The Kielce Kadzielnia Reserve is one of the smallest reserves in Poland, but it is definitely worth being there. Not only because it is home to the most beautifully located amphitheatre in Poland. There is also an eye-catching, huge monadnock - Skałka Geologów, the longest zip-line in Poland, a cave system made available as the Underground Tourist Route or an artificial waterfall.
Associated mainly with the figure of Father Mateusz (from polish tv series) - however, in Sandomierz it is not as dark as TV says! It is primarily a city of vineyards and Sandomierz podpiwek, which is served to tourists at every corner during the season. It is also the Castle, the Underground Tourist Route and the Opatowska Gate, from which there are amazing views of the city, the river and the Pieprzowe Mountains.
92. Kazimierz Dolny
In Kazimierz, it is worth going through the famous ravine "Korzeniowy Dół" - a man seems so small in it! In addition, Kazimierz is simply a charming town on the Vistula River - the intimate buildings of the city make a visit here long remembered. The Three Crosses Mountain and the castle are also obligatory places when visiting Kazimierz Dolny.
93. Attractions of Lublin
Lublin is a city with a history that can be learned in museums and walking around the alleys of the city. In Lublin, you must see the Castle Tower, the Lublin Metropolitan Cathedral, the Museum of the Lublin Countryside, the State Museum at Majdanek, the Trinitarian Tower, the Lublin Castle and, of course, the old town.
94. “Szumy nad Tanwią” Nature Reserve
Roztocze is a real mecca for those who seek the solace of the soul. It is green, and unspoilt, and one of such walks leads to the "Szumy nad Tanwią" nature reserve. The Tanew River creates an almost idyllic landscape here - a path has been built right above it, which will allow for extremely close contact with the water. It is the Tanew and the other river - Jeleń - that create small, charming cascades that make a characteristic sound. This sound is noise - and it is this noise that is the main character of this trip.
If there was a mite, there must be Polesie - a land of lakes, swamps, swamps inhabited by elks and various types of birds. It is birdwatching that is particularly popular here - so we invite every nature lover to the Polesie National Park. The task will not be difficult - it will be facilitated by kilometres of wooden footbridges and observation towers built especially for people hungry for Polesie landscapes.
The Bieszczady Mountains are becoming an increasingly popular mountain range - no wonder, after all, it is a real paradise for hikers who want to travel long, but not very extreme trails. The Bieszczady Mountains also include Lake Solina and the longest Polish dam, the Szepit Waterfall, peaks such as Tarnica or Smerek, Połonina Caryńska and Wetlińska, the Polańczyk headland, the Sine Wiry Nature Reserve or Orthodox churches, such as the one in Smolnik.
97. Krasiczyn Castle
Some of the photos of the Castle in Krasiczyn may resemble fragments of the intro of Disney fairy tales - but it's still Poland! The Renaissance castle is surrounded by a beautiful park, and the interior of the castle can also be visited during night tours - then it makes the greatest impression!
98. Orthodox churches in Podkarpacie (cerkwie na Podkarpaciu)
We mention them because some of them - those in Chotyniec, Smolnik, Turzańsk and Radruż have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are a lot of wooden Orthodox churches in the Podkarpacie region - all of them are worth seeing, for example, by going on a bicycle trip along parts of the Wooden Architecture Trail. It is impossible to ride the entire trail - there are as many as 9 routes with a total length of 1202 km and 127 objects, but you will certainly choose those that will be on your way!
99. Visiting the European Bison - Bison Demonstration Farm (Zagroda Pokazowa Żubrów)
In Muczne, by the Czerwony stream, you will find an unusual object - Zagroda Żubrów. If you would like to take a closer look at these majestic animals in their natural environment, there are viewing terraces and a guide waiting for you, who will reveal more bison curiosities.
100. Museum of Lemko Culture (Muzeum Kultury Łemkowskiej)
It was about Kashubia - maybe now about Lemkos? For many years, they inhabited the area of present-day Podkarpacie, creating bustling villages. Today, the memory of the Lemkos is still alive in the museum, which exhibits original Lemko furniture, everyday objects, folk costumes, dishes and farm tools. The open-air museum consists of Chyża (a cottage), Koniuszna, a village hall, a forge, a chapel, a windmill, a small inn, an exhibition pavilion and a pigsty.
