This central European country borders Germany, Czechia, Slovakia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Lithuania. In the north, Poland has beach towns along the Baltic Sea, as well as the colorful port city of Gdansk. Krakow is another popular city in Poland, with medieval sites and a strong Jewish heritage, while the capital city of Warsaw has a carefully restored Old Town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
QUICK POLAND FACTS
Currency: Polish złoty can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Poland, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.
Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.
Official Language: The official language of Poland is Polish.
Health: There are a few health concerns in Poland for travellers. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.
