Flights to Poland
Poland is located in Central Europe. It’s a sizeable country, ranked ninth in terms of land area in Europe, and it’s got one of the largest populations out of all the EU countries. Being so large there’s a lot to see in Poland, including some great scenery.
Most international flights to Poland arrive in Warsaw, at the Frederic Chopin Airport (airport code: WAW). There is also a large airport outside of Krakow, the John Paul II International Airport Krakow-Balice (code: KRK). In Warsaw, you can get between the airport and the city by public bus as well as by train. Flights to Poland are available on Swiss Air or South African Airways from South Africa, both taking the same route through Zurich. BMI has a 1-stop flight to Poland route that goes through London, as does Virgin Atlantic.

The Tourist Attractions of Poland:
Poland can be divided into five regions, each region offering the tourist something different.
Central Poland is home to the country’s capital and largest city, Warsaw, though this part of the country is not just an urban sprawl, it contains Europe’s largest natural forest making this an interesting and varied part of Poland to visit.
Being the capital, Warsaw is popular with tourists, particularly its beautiful Old Town. Though largely destroyed during WW2 it has since been rebuilt, earning it a place on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. There are many beautiful buildings to see in Warsaw, including the Royal Palace.
Northern Poland also offers varied scenery, spanning from the attractive coast on the Baltic Sea where you’ll find nice, sandy beaches, to inland where there are more forests, as well as lakes and rivers. This is a great part of Poland to visit if you enjoy being outdoors, hiking, boating etc.
Eastern and Western Poland
While Eastern Poland does have attractions, Western Poland is becoming more recognised as a tourist destination. Like the rest of this country Western Poland also offers some great scenery, and is the perfect place to visit if you enjoy watching out for rare bird species among the trees of the primeval forests that grows here.
Southern Poland again has some spectacular scenery. Here the lower lands rise up into mountains where there’s wonderful views, caves and more to explore. The towns and cities in this part of Poland are very attractive too. Krakow is the best known city in Southern Poland, and what an attractive city it is. The medieval old city has plenty of striking architecture and Krakow also has many museums, including the popular Wawel Castle.
Wherever you go in Poland you will also find many smaller towns and villages where you can experience the more traditional side of Polish culture, enjoy more great scenery, and get out for hike, bicycle rides, or horse back rides.
When Should You Visit?:
Poland has a mainly temperate climate so it doesn’t usually suffer any extremes of hot or cold. Although the north of the country is slightly cooler, the coast is pleasantly warm enough in the summer months for enjoying the beaches. Winters are cold, but usually drier than the rest of the year, however rainfall should not be counted out whenever you choose to visit Poland.
