About Poland in Short

For a relatively small area there are many major cities: Gdansk - the center of industry and mechanical engineering; Gdynia, in less than 100 years, transformed from a fishing village into a significant fishing, military and commercial port; Szczecin and Swinoujscie together form the largest seaport of the country, and many others.

All sights of Poland can’t be seen in a single tourist trip: the official history of the country begins with the IX century, although people still lived there thousands of years ago - in many parts there are the traces of prehistoric cultures. The most famous is Lusatian culture, namely the settlement Biskupin, discovered by archaeologists in 1933 – which is about 2500-3000 years. Interestingly, the structures are wooden and they survived, thanks to the peculiarities of the climate, and some were reconstructed exactly. Now it is a museum under the open sky; arriving to Biskupin in summer, you can see interesting archaeological festivals.

If we talk strictly about Poland, about its history and culture, Warsaw has always played a prominent role. It had hard times: a lot of devastating wars, fires, epidemics and other disasters, but all the time it survived and was renewed. Warsaw became the capital of the country in the XVI century, but even before it was the city, in which trade and crafts actively developed. After the Second World War the city had to be rebuilt - after all, Hitler ordered to raze it to the ground, and now there are a lot of skyscrapers and other modern facilities.
