I was in Warsaw and Krakow and I liked it very much. Great food and drinks. I used the Viator app to book walking tours. I also did a lot of walking on my own. I also went to Auschwitz for a one-day trip. Things there were also cheap.

Solo travel experience

Last summer, I went to Poland alone, using InterRail. I really enjoyed it and couldn't understand why I hadn't gone there earlier. The people were friendly, and there was always someone who spoke English and wanted to help. I found the prices to be very reasonable. It was nice to walk among the buildings, often a mixture of new and old. Great urban squares with lots of people outside and pleasant temperatures.

I was on a solo trip to Poland and it was the best trip of my life. I love Poland. I visited Poznań, Warsaw, Kraków, Łódź, Wrocław, and a few rural and mountain towns. They were all amazing. There is a lot to see, the people are charming, and the food is wonderful.

I spent 6 weeks in Poland. It was beautiful and very safe. I was alone everywhere, from the Masuria region to Zakopane. It's very easy to get around Poland, and the people are very nice. Their public transportation is great, and Uber is very reasonably priced.

Solo travel experience

I must say that Poland has exceeded my expectations. What a beautiful country. Easy to navigate, clean, safe, with old world charm, inexpensive, hospitable for tourists, fantastic food, fairy-tale views and places. I used the Old Town in Krakow as my base, and visited Krakow, Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Wieliczka Salt Mine, Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains, went on a train trip to Wrocław, and even took part in a dumpling-making course, run by a local resident in the Kazimierz district in Krakow. I highly recommend it.

Solo travel experience

The journey lasted about 10 days, during which I visited Warsaw - Malbork Castle - Gdańsk - Sopot - Toruń - Poznań - Wrocław - Kraków. I also visited Auschwitz. I travelled around Poland by bus. I believe that every place is beautiful in its own way and comparisons are not fair. However, I have to say that I probably liked Warsaw the least, even though it is an extraordinary city, being relatively new, not counting more than 75 years, rebuilt after the end of World War II. I really liked Wrocław, Toruń, and Poznań (even though they are smaller cities) and of course Kraków, which is beautiful. Visiting Auschwitz is heavy and when you are there, you realize what a death camp it must have been.

Poland was never on my list of places to visit, but I had the chance to go there last June for three weeks and it was fantastic. I started in Gdansk, then went to Poznan, then to Warsaw, and finally to Krakow. All the time, I felt absolutely safe. The Poles were hospitable and friendly.

Solo travel experience

Moving around Poland by myself, I really enjoyed it and felt very safe, even in the early morning hours. Excellent value for money, and the people were super friendly. I felt safe and confident eating, drinking and exploring alone. I highly recommend it to people interested in history, nature or architecture.

I spent a week travelling around the North of Poland and visiting the capital city. All in all, 4 cities. The whole trip took mr around 400$ together with staying at hostels and eating at cafes all the time. Thr weather was nice and hot, multicultural tourists were giving me the festive mood. I just loved the service sphere of Poland! Everyone's friendly and helpful. The food is delicious and always served in substantial quantity. There're numerous museums and parks to visit everywhere.

Hi there, I’m Laetitia from Taipei. If you’re planning to come visit, please don’t hesitate to pm me for some tips or local pocket lists around the city, or feel free to grab a drink with me🤩 2024 is a big year for me, since I decided to give myself a break, quit my job to start all over, and hit the road. I’m planning a 60 days trip in middle Europe, and hope to have the opportunity to couch surf in different cities❤️ Can’t wait for all the adventures ahead of me, and make new friends along the way🥺 In my friends’ point of view, I’m always “the mom” in the group (just can’t help myself not to take care of everyone). I’m proud to say I make a pretty fun and caring roommate, and also, I cook😂 And also, I’m a total animal lover(including insects🤣)
