What To Expect When Visiting Poland
I have visited Poland twice now and need to go back to experience the fun side of it again soon in the summer. I went on one Jewish trip touring the concentration camps and different memorials and another visiting the cities. Krakow and Warsaw are both huge cities with a ton of history. The food in Poland is nice and heavy and the weather gets quite cold in the winter. Poland has a ton of history and should definitely be on a Europe road trip or holiday bucket list.
Polish Zloty! It is about 4x the US dollar.
Other Tips When Visiting Poland
- Polish food is very good and heavy. Check out all the absolute best Polish foods to try during your trip.
- Travel Insurance: When visiting Poland, I highly recommend getting travel insurance. You never know what may happen to your flights, a death/personal emergency in your family, or an accident happening while traveling (think: getting mugged, falling while hiking and spraining your ankle, literally any accident than can happen ANYWHERE!). World Nomads makes it super easy and I never leave for a trip without getting their insurance. Most importantly it’s extremely affordable: get your World Nomads travel insurance before your trip here!
