Poland is a country of quality recreation.
For a little vacation pleasure, Warsaw, Krakow and Gdańsk offer travelers a superb selection of luxury experiences to remember. Enjoy luxurious and chic hotels, boutiques, vibrant history and iconic locations, whether in the heart of big cities outside of big cities, in lush suburbs or even on the peninsula of an azure lake.
The best examples of Polish luxury hotels are Raffles Europejski Warsaw, Warsaw Bristol, Nobu Warsaw Hotel, Hotel Aries & Spa Zakopane, Hotel Mikołajki Leisure & SPA or Hotel Quadrille Relais & Châteaux, which refers to the quadrille danced by the characters from the novel, through the White Rabbit Restaurant referencing Alice’s Guide to the Fantastic World, to the 10/6 Pub – the name derived from the Mad
Poland has more than 500 castles and 250 palaces. Some places have been transformed into luxury hotels and spa facilities. Zamek Biskupi Janów Podlaski is a prime example of such a hotel. It is picturesquely located and dates back to the 15th century.
The gastronomic offer available throughout the year allows visitors to discover the true taste of this region, rooted in its history and its unique products. Three Polish restaurants have been awarded Michelin stars: Senses, Bottigliera 1881 and Atelier Amaro. A new restaurant is Robert Lewandowski’s Ninie’s Restaurant & Sport Bar – a real treasure for all fans of this great footballer.
No visit to Warsaw is complete without listening to the music of Chopin, one of the world’s most recognizable Poles. This part of the program takes visitors to exquisite interiors of art galleries or buildings in the Old Town district of Warsaw.
In Gdańsk, medical clinics and spas can provide professional aesthetic medical and health services. Polish medical centers offer world-class medical procedures and treatment led by strong and efficient medicine, pioneering doctors, professionally trained staff, international standards and the best value for money. Gdańsk is the true capital of amber. The most famous and chic boutiques and galleries selling amber of all shapes and sizes can be found in Gdańsk. Discover the magical world of amber at the Amber Museum. There, over 1,000 glittering exhibits await you to explore.
If you are in Krakow, be sure to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO site – one of the oldest salt mines in the world, in operation for 600 years. Deep underground, these are truly unique cities of salt: with churches, chapels, and legendary ventilation, drainage, lighting and transportation systems. The tourist route includes a section of 3.5 kilometers located 64 to 135 meters below ground level and the last one extends to a depth of 327 meters. The site has lakes, a unique microclimate and a spa, ideal for people with respiratory problems. Each year, these sites are visited by more than a million tourists.
Sports facilities are among the best: championship golf courses and modern marinas attract active recreation enthusiasts. If you prefer the sluggishness of life, visit the Masurian region known as the land of 1,000 lakes – large and small, linked together by waterways, shrouded in forests. The region has the cleanest and best unpolluted air in Poland and offers the best sailing opportunities.
