Summer travel to Poland requires advance planning, especially if you will arrive at a destination city prior to or during a major annual festival like Wianki. Check events calendars to determine what?s on during the time of your planned stay and either work the event into your schedule or create a travel plan that helps you avoid the time when the numbers of visitors for that event are expected to peak.

A journey through the Polish countryside gives you a perfect opportunity to enjoy and absorb local knowledge about its landscape and people.

Travel to Poland: Key regions

Poland’s sixteen administrative regions are called województwa, often abbreviated as “woj.”. The word is roughly equivalent to the word “province” in English. The sixteen provinces have elected self-governments, who oversee local regional and economic policy, EU funding, and cultural affairs. Some English dictionaries use the word voivodeship to describe the provinces, although the use of the word is rare, and is likely not to be universally understood at first by some Poles.
