Central Europe - Poland (Chapter)
This is the Poland chapter from Lonely Planet's Central Europe guidebook.
Poland’s centres, such as bustling Warsaw and cultured Kraków, exude a sophisticated energy that’s a heady mix of old and new. Away from the cities, Poland is a diverse land, from its northern beaches to its magnificent southern mountains. In between are towns and cities dotted with ruined castles, picturesque squares and historic churches.
- experience the beauty and history of Kraków’s Wawel Castle
