Southern Poland travel guide

4.5
Historic Walking Areas · Historic Sites · History Museums
With mountains lining its southwestern border and Krakow at its center, it’s easy to see why Southern Poland drives tourism in the country. Along the border with Slovakia, the snowy Tatra Mountains loom over the region. Krakow, once the royal capital of Poland, delights architecturally. For history buffs, the city has strong Jewish roots, and the devastation of the Holocaust is still keenly felt in a visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau, one of the most disturbing and important attractions in the country. Wroclaw, Zakopane, Katowice, and Karpacz are other great places to visit.

Northern Poland travel guide

Landmarks · History Museums · Historic Sites

The region has seen a lot of change over its long history, passing hands between the Teutonic Order, Hansa merchants, and the Prussians. All these shifts have left a distinct cultural imprint on the region. Explore medieval towns Malbork and Torun, as well as the nature haven in the northeastern part of the province. Full of lakes and rivers, the area is prime for kayaking and outdoor activities.
