Why Poland is becoming a popular tourist hotspot


Have you noticed that everyone is talking about Poland? With cheap flights being offered from UK regions such as the North West and North East, maybe it is time to find out what all the fuss is about for yourself.

Here are three destinations that are waiting to be discovered:


This well-connected Upper Silesian town has risen in prominence thanks to its convenience as a hub for getting to other Polish cities. With cheap flights available from many UK cities, it has also become a useful European outpost for many businesses. However, Katowice has much more than business to offer. It is home to three cultural gems: the Wyspianski Silesian Theatre, Silesian Philharmonic and the Silesian Museum. Not just that, but it has a wonderful collection of parks and gardens, including the very popular Silesian Culture and Refreshment Park.


Steeped in a 1,000 year-old Polish-German history and capital of the Pomeranian Voivodship, Gdansk has a popular and picturesque Old Town that welcomes as many tourists as the more established destinations of Krakow and Warsaw. With stunning architecture, its historical routes remain central to what Gdansk is about. However, thanks for a strong academic profile, it also has a young European feel and with a strong and expanding economy, it has just as much modern culture to offer something to all generations.


Found along the Odra River, the Lower Silesia capital has drawn comparisons with Venice as well as being described in some quarters as the new Krakow. This, in part, is down to the availability of cheap flights from the UK and a sharp rise in visitors over the last few years. It is home of a popular university, which like Gdansk, gives the city a youthful atmosphere. Its rich history, involving its ownership by four different countries, coupled with its vibrant nightlife and cultural attractions – including cafes, restaurants, and hotels – mean Wroclaw is a modern and interesting city that more and more people are starting to explore.
