Cultural Sites of Interest in Poland
Considered one of the hidden treasures of Europe; Poland is rich with countryside, lively cities and towns that are as entertaining as they are beautiful. Travelling to Poland will meet visitors with heritage, culture beauty and historical Polish landmarks that cannot be found anywhere besides here. The pride in their culture and heritage throughout the county is unmistakable.

The timeline of the struggles that faced Poland in centuries past including the most recent devastation of World War II give the country a history that can tell its own story. The country and its cities have a tapestry of storytelling and culture weaved through them that bring together such a vivid image of the rural past of the country to the now lively, historical country that takes pride in its struggle and its accomplishments.

Each part of Poland is referred to as its administrative region consisting of North, South, East, West and Central. Each area has its own unique element that is still strongly tied together with the remarkable pride in Polish culture and Polish Tradition.

Lublin with an amazing city square is both historical and home to many grand features. The Castle Chapel holds amazing murals and the Museum of Lublin Village illustrates through its displays life in early century Poland. Lublin is also home to Krakow Gate which was building in the 13th century, an original part of the city wall.

Kazimierz Dolney also a small quaint town, previously a wealthy merchant city on the Vistula River trade route and a home to a castle which now lies in ruins. On the outskirts of them small town is a Holocaust memorial constructed from headstones of Jewish graves broken during World War II.

The journey to Zakopane a mountain town requires a tram to the top of the mountain. A journey to this lively town gives way to a spectacular mountaintop view as well as a trail that serves as the border between Poland and Slovakia.

Czestochowa is considered the spiritual home of the Polish Catholics. Coiled the home of the “Black Madonna” pilgrimages from towns and cities miles from Czestochowa are common to celebrate mass for the Assumption Day holiday in August.

Warsaw the capital of Poland and houses some of the oldest governmental structures in the country including the Presidential Palace and the Chopin Monument. The original Warsaw was virtually destroyed during the War and has since been reconstructed and still serves as the capital city.

Krakow may be considered the city of churches. Krakow has more that 50 churches in its limits, including the St. Mary’s Cathedral. Krakow also is the home of the oldest existing Jewish cemetery; unfortunately many of the others had been destroyed by the Nazis during World War II. Museums and synagogues still exist to tell the story of the journey of many of the Polish people and their journey through the war and the fall of communism.

Travelling to Poland will offer tourists many grand memories. The wheat fields and lush countryside landscaped with unsoiled grounds is also plentiful with old castles, churches and quaint towns; all bulging with history. In the past Poland was a fairly wealthy merchant country rich with nobility wealth and religion. The fall of communism and the devastation of World War II among other historical elements changed the future for Poland.

A combination of a past rich with struggle and history that is well preserved yet sprinkled with the business and style of the contemporary era. Because they have such a vivid history and so much to offer Poland tourism and travel today is one of the leading sources of commerce for the country.
