According to 'Conde Nast Traveller' Warsaw with it's funky and fresh image, was one of the 10 must see places in the World. Each year Krakow is chosen in international rankings, as place worth visiting. Do you know why?

Poland is a beautiful country in the central part of the European continent, the geometrical center of which is near Warsaw. This is where the lines from Nordkyn in Norway to Matapan in Greece, and from Cabo da Roca in Portugal to the central Urals intersect. The boundary between the East and West European continental masses also runs through Poland.

With a total surface area is 322,500 sq km Poland it the ninth largest country in Europe, after Russia, Ukraine, France, Spain, Sweden, Germany, Finland and Norway, and the 63rd largest in the world.

Poland has a moderate climate with both maritime and continental elements. This is due to humid Atlantic air which collides over its territory with dry air from the Eurasian interior. As a result, the weather tends to be capricious and the seasons may look quite different in consecutive years. This intensive mix makes winters really cold but sunny and summers hot and dry.
The best time to visit Poland is between May and September. You can be sure that the weather will be fantastic. If you love winter and skiing you should try it in Poland. Polish mountains are amazing  and our slopes are well prepared.
