12 Unusual Places You Should Visit On Your Trip To Poland


Poland is a beautiful country with a long and interesting history that also turned out to be a popular budget travel destination. Poland is getting a more and more commonly chosen holiday spot, especially for backpackers.

However, regardless of your travel title come and see it yourself. Besides luxurious hotels, Poland has its own original Airbnb (kind of) – you can stay at a local’s house and rent a room for a night or two. That is because back in a day tourist infrastructure wasn’t very sufficient across Easter Europe, thus people were encouraged to rent out rooms to tourists. You will fall in love with Pierogi (traditional polish dumplings) and Pączki (a polish type of donuts), and you may even try hundreds of types of Kiełbasa (sausages). And if those facts are reasonable and encouraging enough for you, here is a list of 12 Unusual Places You Should Visit On Your Trip To Poland!

Traveling to Poland and not treating yourself with traditional polish gingerbread is like buying a scoop of ice-cream but without waffle or cup, but on your hand instead. It is one of those things you either like or dislike but must try.
