For many it is the memory of a troubled past, marked by wars and destruction, but today Poland is tourism.
Located in the heart of Europe, Poland was in the past a place of union and division between Eastern and Western Europe. Today, free from foreign interference, Poland is the country you must visit if you want to see how a nation manages to rise from the ground and reinvent itself. It is a state of many faces, where the capital and the ancient medieval cities are pampered by sophisticated and often intriguing citizens and where horse-drawn carriages crisscross the city streets in areas where the 21st century seems to have not yet arrived.
Some cities, which have entered into the list of Unesco world heritage sites, are real jewels of art, Krakow, for example, or Gdansk, Poznan and Wroclaw.
