the legacy of bygone centuries that includes monuments of architecture, historical mementos and masterpieces of art is perfectly combined with the wealth of Polish nature and its original landscapes
As you are visiting Poland, it is hard to resist the impression that its history often speaks through its unique monuments. Although the Swedish Deluge, numerous invasions and wars destroyed a significant part of the wonderful buildings, some of them have survived until our times. They are really worth your while. They come from various historical epochs and thus offer a wonderful review of architectural achievement in Poland. Some of them were modelled on world trends, whereas others represent national patterns. The best recommendations for any monument are from the UNESCO List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The first UNESCO List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage, created in 1978, included two places in Poland: Cracow and Wieliczka. Today, the list contains fourteen unique objects from Poland, which you should definitely visit.
The Old Town in Cracow, the salt mines in Wieliczka and Bochnia, the Old Town in Zamość, The Old Town in Warsaw, Białowieża Forest, the Castle of the Teutonic Order in Malbork, the infamous Auschwitz –Birkenau German extermination camp, the medieval urban complex of Toruń, the Kalwaria Zebrzydowska Sanctuary, the Churches of Peace in Jawor and Świdnica, Muskau Park, the Centennial Hall in Wrocław, the wooden churches of Southern Lesser Poland, the Wooden Tserkvas of the Carpathian Region in Poland and Ukraine
