I just came back from a family trip… After long debates, and different opinions shared we ended up in the north of Europe! Poland was our first stop, and definitely one I recommend to all those that want to have a relaxing time, taste new yet simple snacks, smile to strangers and get to know a new culture.
Before sharing my experience and pictures let me give you a very small overview of Poland:
The Culture: A charming mix of Latin, byzantine and German cultures, with some extras of what is left from the communist period and the different European occupations.
Food and Drinks: They eat a lot of potatoes, cold cuts of meat and sausages (kiyelbasa), pyzy (meat filled dough balls, it’s a kind of polish dumplings. I loved them) and paski (a type of Polish doughnut) – Vodka (Belvedere) and beer
Polish: show interest in arts, classical music (maybe what is left from the communist period)
Most Important Figures: Pope Jean Paul II, The Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, and the composer and pianist Frederic Chopin
I will do my best to upload tomorrow the second part of my trip with recommendations and the itinerary I would follow if I were to revisit Poland!
