Poland is not just a great place to conduct business, but also an amazing travel destination. Millions of tourists visit Poland each year and leave knowing they want to come back for more. Whether your idea for a vacation is a longer break in the mountains or at the sea, or you prefer city breaks in places where the past meets the future, Poland is always a good choice.

Each year throughout the country there are numerous festivals and cultural events that attract people from all over the world.
Thanks to over 1000 years of history, in Poland you can discover 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, out of which 15 are cultural and 2 natural. One of them is a complex of two historical salt mines in Wieliczka and Bochnia.

The natural beauty can surely be found in the Polish mountains. The highest mountain range is the Tatra Mountains constituting a natural border between Poland and Slovakia. The unique town of Zakopane acts as a highlight, offering access both to the most popular routes in the mountains as well as the cultural locations. For more casual hiking, tourists can visit remote Bieszczady Mountains to really connect with untouched nature.
