Poland Vacation Rentals
Renting an apartment, cottage or house in Poland is an excellent way to ensure a unique experience exploring the historic cities and diverse countryside of this eastern European country. Largely undamaged during WWII, you can find medieval history in Krakow’s Old City and Market Square, which with its sidewalk cafes, street entertainers and street vendors is a good place for people watching. Other attractions in Krakow are the 10th-century St. Adalbert’s Church, the Czartoryski Museum, the Royal Castle and the Jewish Quarter. On the other end of the spectrum, Warsaw has been restored and rebuilt after the destruction that came during World War II. While many of Warsaw’s historic areas have been rebuilt, the city is much more modern and cosmopolitan. Warsaw’s former Jewish Districts of Mirow and Miranow, have monuments and a tour commemorating the period of struggle against the Nazis and the uprising of 1943. Other Warsaw attractions are the rebuilt Royal Castle and the Palace of Culture and Science. Outside of Poland’s major cities, a day trip or cycle tour of the Great Masurian Lakes may be in order. With a large Roman Catholic population, holidays such as Christmas and Easter, can be interesting times to visit Poland. The cultural attractions extend beyond religion to jazz clubs and an annual jazz festival; the Music in Old Krakow International Festival; the Wratislavia Cantans in Wroclaw; and an annual Polish Film Festival. The variety of Polish food available adds another interesting dimension to a vacation in Poland. Polish cuisine ranges from fresh seafood to internationally known dishes such as kielbasa, golabki and pierogil.
