Explore underrated destination: Gdansk and Warsaw, Poland

I love spontaneous trips. In July I have been to Poland with a friend of mine and we had a blast there. Poland is cool, budget-friendly destination. You can hop on Flixbus ( there is no Polskibus anymore, Flixbus bought them as many other European bus companies) or Wizzair/ Ryanair flight from your home destination and experience Poland on your own.

Which places can I recommend you to visit?

Warsaw

Lazienski park full of runners, statues, and peacocks.

Explore Presidential Palace in downtown. You might spot the Polish president Andrzej Duda.

You can visit The Royal castle for free on Wednesdays!

Gdansk

I personally love it there! Seaside, architecture, food, atmosphere, budget and cashless friendliness.

We wandered around city center, unwinded at Jelitkowo/ Brezno beach and had great meals at Pyra bar, where you can order vegan/vegetarian/ gluten free/ lactose-free/ regular 🙂 meal, all of them are made from potatoes and other local products.

 

 

Knowledge from Poland:

  • You can buy cheap gluten-free, vegan and lactose free products in supermarkets.
  • Looking for a snack? Buy a soup in supermarket. They are ready to eat and delicious.
  • Do you have ISIC? Great! You get 50% discount on public transport and entrance fees in most cities.
  • Beware of Polish/polish :-).

Have you ever visited Poland? What are your must-see places in Poland?
