 GREATER POLAND

Greater Poland (Wielkopolska) – the historical name of the region, first recorded in the mid 13th century, is the best and the most relevant promotional slogan of the area. It consists of two words: a modifier – “Greater”, and the name of the country – “Poland”. Right here over a thousand years ago the Polish statehood was being forged drawing on strong centres in Gniezno and Poznań (the biggest city of the Great Poland and the capital of the whole region).

Poznań and Gniezno (50 km away) were the first Polish capitals. Both cities are connected by the tourist trail known as the Piast Route.

The most worth seeing places in Poznan are: the 16th century renaissance Town Hall in the Old Square, the cathedral, Polish Theatre of Dance – Poznan Ballet, a great number of museums, among which is the Museum of Musical Instruments, which has one of the richest collections in Europe. Poznan is also home to the world-famous boys’ and men’s male voice choirs.

WARSAW

There is usually a wonderful weather in Poland between May and October, so is worth visiting and get married in our beautiful capital.

Warsaw is an extraordinary city. Its history and climate impress the visitors, while its uniqueness interests them. In Warsaw, influences of Western and Eastern Europe culture cross. Here historic buildings, palaces, churches and architectural complexes, destroyed during the War, have been reconstructed with great care. UNESCO appreciated Warsaw Monuments and its relics and honoured the City by putting the Historic Centre of Warsaw on the World Heritage List.

Lovers of culture and art, as well as those looking for entertainment, will find much to enjoy in it. Warsaw is renowned as a centre of cultural tourism thanks to numerous theatrical and musical venues, including the prestigious National Opera, the Chamber Opera, the National Philharmonic Hall and the National Theatre, as well as the music theatres Roma and Buffo, the Jewish Theatre, characterised by its unique atmosphere.

KRAKOW

A city wrapped in legend, where time flows differently, and where every moment becomes a moment of history. 

Krakow is appreciated not only by its citizens but also by tourists who fall in love with the city and often  come back attracted by its magic…

It is not a simple task to describe the unique character of Krakow to those who still have not had the opportunity to visit this city. This uniqueness is primarily due to the rare cultural heritage embodied in the city’s wall. Here, a royal castle was built on Wawel Hill, becoming the coronation and burial place of kings, as Krakow was the capital of Poland from the 11th – 17th centuries. In 1364, the Krakow Academy was established; the first Polish university (today renamed Jagiellonian University).

The tradition interwove with modern times nearly everywhere you go, and each stone has its own history. Thanks to the extraordinary accumulation of cultural wealth, the city was registered as one of the 12 sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Benefiting from its geographical location, in 2002 Krakow, aiming to become a meeting place of many cultures and nations, has successfully claimed its position as a Central European metropolis – a city of culture, art and science.

You can admire: Wawel – a coronation place of kings of Poland, the Wit Stwosz’s altar in the Mariacki church, the biggest Market Square in Europe, Kazimierz Jewish district and the oldest polish university – Jagiellonian University. Krakow is also the city of Kościuszko, Piłsudski, Krak and Wanda.

In the region, you can also visit worldwide unique underground corridors of the Wieliczka salt mine, Wadowice – the birthplace of John Paul II. Not far away there is winter capital of Poland – Zakopane.

POMERANIA

Pomerania (Pomorze) is a historical and geographical region in northern Poland along the Baltic coast. It is divided into Western Pomerania (around Szczecin) and Eastern Pomerania (around Gdańsk). Geographically, it encompasses two different landscape zones: the coast and, more inland, the lake districts.

Pomerania has always been a land of many cultures and influences – German, Slavonic and Scandinavian – which has left its imprint on the local art and architecture. The most impressive strongholds and castles, today  some of the region’s biggest tourist attractions, were built by the Teutonic Knights.

Gdańsk neighbours on Sopot, best known for its wide wooden pier, almost half a kilometre long, and the Opera (Opera Leśna) which plays host to the annual International Song Festival. North of Sopot lies Gdynia. The three municipalities make up a vast metropolis known as the Trójmiasto (TripleCity). More to the east stretches the Hel Peninsula, dotted with quiet and pleasant seaside resorts: Jurata, Jastarnia, Chałupy, and Hel, all with clean, wide beaches sheltered by dunes and pine groves which are a delight for those who seek peace and relaxation.

MAZURIAN LAKES

Mazury is the name for almost the entire area of the Lake District in Northeastern Poland. For most Poles there is no difference between Mazury and Warmia. Thus, Mazury is where the lakes are. Warmia is a historical land, which comprises the central and northern parts of the Olsztynskie and Mragowskie Lake Districts together with the Varminska Plain. The commonly used name “The Land of a Thousand Lakes” characterizes perfectly the region. Nature along with interesting monuments creates the attractiveness of Varmia and Mazury. The lakes are connected naturally or by channels; the Sniardwy Lake and the Mamry Lake are the biggest in Poland. There is also the Mazurski Landscape Park, which came into existence in 1977. The Krutynia River (the most interesting canoe routes in Europe) is one of the sights most worth seeing.
