If you want to go somewhere a little more far-flung, yet still seek that European charm, there may be no place better than Poland. Boasting beaches, castles, mountains, lakes and no fewer than 14 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Poland is full of ways to surprise and delight its visitors.
After centuries as one of the most powerful kingdoms in Europe, modern Poland continues to evolve with the times and has become a fantastic blend of old and new. Between the incredible architecture and culture of Krakow, the technologically-charged towers of Warsaw and the beaches of Gdansk, you'd think you were in entirely different countries during each visit.
As a flashpoint in countless moments in European history, Poland is no stranger to museums, art galleries, exhibitions and diverse cuisine, which it wants to share with everyone that visits. Combined with the famed Polish hospitality, you could find that this eastern nation could be top of your list of places to return to for years to come.
