To hear that Poland was once the most powerful country in Europe may come as a surprise to many, but visit to see for yourself just why. The larger cities in Poland such as Wroclaw in Lower Silesia have every modern amenity imaginable. The areas surrounding Wroclaw itself are extremely rich in natural materials and a great deal of mining industry has found its roots here. Book your Poland hotel in or close to the Rynek in Wroclaw for possibly the best city views in Europe. The Tatra Mountains in the south offer excellent skiing, so book a hotel in Poland's South for that.
Krakow, the traditional capital in past centuries, although not the capital today, is a must see for all fans of culture and history. Book a Poland hotel in Krakow now, close to the Kazimeirz area, to see pubs that really haven't changed in the past 70 years. This is indeed the old Jewish Ghetto of Krakow, a significant site for 20th Century European history. Here you can see Oskar Schindler's factory, complete with a museum opening in 2009. Book any Poland hotel now to see just why it's one of Europe's fastest growing economies and a future big player in Europe.
