Most visitors in Poland visit the south of the country, where the city of Krakow attracts tourists of all types. Krakow is noted for the beauty of its town centre. It has a wealth of monuments and churches to go with a famous nightlife scene. The magnificent Tatra Mountains are nearby on the border with Slovakia, and the former concentration camp, Auschwitz, is close.

The capital, Warsaw, is further north and was almost completely rebuilt after World War II. The region of Pomerania on the north coast has fantastic beaches, though beach weather is strictly limited to the summer months.
