A world heritage site, Krakos is the ancient city of kings and Poland’s cultural capital. It attracts a youthful, bohemian crowd. During the day its cobblestoned streets are closed to cars.
Baltic Riviera, Sopot
This section of the Baltic Sea coast is also known as the Amber Coast, named after the high quality amber—the “jewels of the Polish nobility”—found in abundance here. The Amber Coast features golden-white sands, calm seas, and the recently restored resort town of Sopot. The 1920-1930’s were the heyday for this Baltic Sea town known as the “Pearl of the Baltic” and the “Monte Carlo of the North”. Sopot contains long sandy beaches and Europe’s longest wooden pier.
Countryside Hotels, Baltic Riviera
The pre-WWII aristocratic castles, palaces and manor houses were purposively vandalized during the Communist era; they are now being restored and transformed into atmospheric countryside hotels.
Lakes, forests, and history abound here in the western and central Polish region known as Greater Poland. This traditionally prosperous region contains Poland’s oldest province and is the historical center of origin of the Polish Nation dating from the 10th century. Later known as “Southern Prussia”; its capital is Poznan.
