Holiday Poland Destinations
A popular question amongst local people discussing holidays in Poland is sea, mountains or lakes, which do you prefer? You can see where these are located on the map of Poland below.
The seaside resorts in the north on the Baltic Coast are popular with sunseekers and surfers, summer months June to August can get really hot with average temperatures well above 22 degrees. Coastal resorts such as Sopot, Międzyzdroje, Kołobrzeg, Łeba, Władysławowo and Hel do have a holiday atmosphere about them, but generally the coast is less commercial than many resorts in the Med.
If you want to get away from the crowds to enjoy nature and relax, then the Mazury lake district is ideal. Located in north east Poland, there are huge areas of unspoilt forests, clean air, peace and quiet, also a popular destination for hunting and fishing.
The mountains in the south in the summer are also a great place for a holiday in Poland, relaxation and getting away from it all, it’s now easy to cross the boarder into Slovakia or the Czech Republic to spend some time there too.
During the winter resorts such as Karpacz, Zakopane, Krynica, Szczyrk and Szklarska Poreba have great facilities for skiing and snowboarding.
What with so many Poles over in the UK, more people here have expressed an interest in visiting Poland, where will you go? If you have friends in Poland then definately go to visit them, there is a strong tradition of welcoming guests with open arms and they will certainly be able to show you some interesting places. Otherwise, the choice is yours, sea, mountains or lakes :-)
