About Poland

Following a long history of outside influences, Poland now stands on its own as a robust nation of unspoiled countryside, bustling urban centres and friendly residents. Warsaw, destroyed in WWII, was rebuilt to become the nation’s resilient capital and manufacturing centre. Krakow, called ‘the cultural capital’, has a historical Old Town packed with galleries, coffee shops and cultural monuments.

Food and drink

Beetroot soup, pierogi (Polish dumplings) and stuffed cabbage rolls can be found in bar mleczny (’milk bars’), communist-era remnants that serve cheap Polish fare. In Krakow, bagels are common, as is oscypek, a salty hard cheese that goes well with its pilsner lagers. While the vodka flows freely, Poles are also big tea and coffee drinkers.

Shopping

For local wares like amber jewellery and sheepskin rugs, check out Rynek Główny, the centuries-old market in Krakow’s Old Town. Warsaw has three large shopping malls where you can get Western brands at a cheaper price than in many other European countries. Both cities also have extensive Christmas markets.
