Situated between Russia and Germany, Poland has had its fair share of eventful history. It was only in 1989 that the country gained independence, and it has been growing as one of Central Europe’s powerhouses ever since. Cities like Gdansk, Cracow and Warsaw have developed rapidly, and the whole country is full of historic and natural interest, as you’ll find out for yourself when you travel to Poland with Qatar Airways.
Poland is full of monuments and picturesque ruins that bear witness to its past. The Russians, Prussians and Austrians have all left their mark on the cultural landscapes of the country, and on the urban and rural architecture in particular. The churches are interesting to visit for their grand Baroque architecture, and the many roadside shrines definitely make for some attractive photo opportunities.
The capital, Warsaw, has a beautiful setting on the River Vistula, one of the great waterways of the region. It is well worth a visit if only to explore its newly renovated buildings following World War II. The buildings were rebuilt to the likeness prior to the war, using old photographs, memoirs and building plans.
If you’re based here you’ll be conveniently located for visiting other cities such as Gdansk and Cracow, the historic royal capital that is today full of a great expanse of parks and greenery, and is bustling with music, performing arts. The oldest Polish city is Poznan, which is full of historic monuments.
