Every time I move into a new country, I try to make the most of it. Now I am based in Poland, I did some exploring around and here's what I saw so far:
(sorted by their size)
The capital of Poland, with ~1.8m population. It is an economic hub for the country, and a host of many interesting cultural events. For me, it is a city of contrasts. While I met there very friendly and hospitable people, I've also experienced worse public safety than in places like New Orleans, East St Louis or some slums in China. Oh well.
Second largest city in Poland, and "the cultural capital," as they call it. A place with a pretty, lively city center, good galleries and tasty cakes.
my hometown, click here for pics from there.
Polish 5th largest city and one big surprise for me. The downtown is beautiful maze of old streets, while the city boasts some cool modern architecture. As a unit, it feels very good.
My favourite city of Poland. See a story about my trip there Here.
A smaller city with a neat, medieval old town.
A town with a massive timber-framed Evangelical Church of Peace from 1656–57, an UNESCO site.
A small town with a big church, the Parish Church of Saints Peter and Paul.
Western gateway to the mountains.
A village with less than 2000 inhabitants, but interesting to see. Feels like going back in time.
a region of charming woodlands and lakes.
Lower Silesian Voivodeship
mountains, forests - plenty of goodness.
