Poland tour holidays
With its rich cultural heritage, spectacular countryside and historic cities, Poland holidays may well surprise you. The capital, Warsaw, almost completely destroyed during the Second World War, was painstakingly rebuilt over the following years. Today, the faithfully restored Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a symbol of Polish pride and determination.
To the south, the medieval city of Krakow is easily one of the most appealing destinations on a tour of Poland, with a wealth of Gothic and Renaissance architecture. Explore the awe-inspiring Wawel Castle, stop at one of the bars and restaurants that fringe Poland’s biggest town square and learn about the country’s tragic wartime history in the poignant synagogues of the old Jewish Quarter and the nearby Auschwitz concentration camp. And don’t miss the charming but lesser-known city of Wrocław, regarded as one of the most beautiful in Poland.

EHIC/GHIC - Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). UK-issued EHICs are still valid and offer the same cover as GHICs in the EU. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC and you can apply online. You should beware of unofficial websites that may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Either card lets you get medically necessary state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge, however it isn’t a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both before you travel. Some European countries don’t accept either card (including the Channel Islands of Guernsey, Alderney and Sark, Norway, Iceland, and Switzerland). To access up-to-date details for the country you’re visiting, please refer to this information
No visa is needed for British citizens to enter Poland. A standard 10 year British passport is required for all holidays, which must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your planned date of return travel.
From London to Warsaw is approx 2 hours and 20 mins
Visit Auschwitz concentration camp, which has been designated as a monument to its victims and declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The outbuildings now form the museum, which contains artefacts belonging to those whom were exterminated.
The tourist epicentre of Warsaw is the 'Royal Route', which runs north-south from the New and Old Towns, past the fashionable shops, the palaces that survived the war and the royal gardens of Łazienki Park, before reaching Wilanów Palace to the south of the city centre. The strikingly successful rebuilding of Warsaw's Old Town after WWII was rewarded in 1980, when it became a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Although it does not offer the charm and aesthetic beauty of other Eastern European capitals, Warsaw is a city you will admire for the human determination and achievement encompassed in this Polish city, which was almost destroyed and left virtually uninhabited by the end of World War II. Today it has risen like a Phoenix and the development is still proceeding swiftly. The historic Old Town, rebuilt brick by brick, is the focus of attention for those on a tour of Poland.
Krakow is the biggest drawing card in Poland. At the height of summer, the country's third largest city throngs with tourists, and pavement cafes seem to occupy every cobble of the main square. Even out of season, the city pulsates with street performers, horse-drawn and other spectacular attractions.
Krakow is one of the best preserved medieval city centres in Europe. You will discover something pretty, old, curious, or tasty around every corner, without even trying too hard. This captivating city scores of notable churches, monasteries and abbeys make it a jewellery box of Gothic and Renaissance; a walk through the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1978, is like a step back in time. Krakow's cultural heritage is mirrored in its intellectual achievements; Jagiellonian University is the second oldest in central Europe.
