The Old Town in Warsaw is a part of UNESCO World Heritage List — it’s where the city’s heart has been beating for centuries. However, when you cross the Vistula River and look at the Old Town from a distance, you are struck by how unusual the panorama of the city is — skyscrapers rise above the red roofs of the Old Town. Historical buildings blend in harmoniously with modern architecture, and the city surprises us by revealing its second face.
Is there a more romantic way to spend time together than an evening walk on the beach by the setting sun or in the moonlight reflected on the surface of the sea? Gdańsk beaches attract large numbers of tourists, especially in the summer when the water is quite warm. Couples also visit here in great numbers. Most popular beaches are located in Jelitkowo, Brzeźno (with the only pier in Gdańsk) and on the Stogi.
3. Bialowieza Forest
The Białowieża Forest is a vast forest complex, consisting of the remnants of several primaeval forests. The symbol of the Białowieża Forest, however, is the European Bison. The species has been saved from extinction here. In the 18th century, the European Bison was almost completely eliminated during hunting trips of the rulers of the time and by poachers. The extermination started right after World War I, when groups of demobilised and demoralised soldiers poached in no man’s Białowieża Forest.
Wrocław is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in Poland. The walls are steeped in the city’s rich and turbulent history. Ostrów Tumski, ‘the Cathedral Island,’ one of the most beautiful surviving sacred architecture sites in Europe, is a reminder of the early Middle Ages. The Wrocław city hall is counted among the most splendid Gothic-Renaissance buildings in Central Europe. The large market square, enclosed by impressive tenement houses, after a thorough renovation in 1997 is without a doubt the most beautiful in Poland and one of the most beautiful in Europe.
