Poland

Poland Overview

Poland is a large nation situated in central Europe. Warsaw is its capital and largest city and will meet all your expectations of post-war, post-communist, eastern European cities.

Warsaw also has the buzz of a city on its way up. Street markets, cafés, discos and spanking new bars flank the reconstructed buildings and monuments of the Old Town, imbuing the capital with a contemporary spin.

To the south, there is the royal capital of Kraków, with its renaissance, baroque and gothic buildings and UNESCO status as one of the world’s top 12 historically significant sites.

CLIMATE

The climate of Poland varies greatly from one part of the country to another. The coast has milder weather than the inland regions, and the mountainous zones are cooler than the lowlands. Temperatures throughout the country average 26 °F (23 °C) in January and 73 °F (23 °C) in July.
