If participating in a life-changing cultural exchange whilst getting free accommodation and board in one of Europe’s most exciting destinations wasn’t enough for you to start booking, here are the top things to do in Poland this September:
1. Wander Warsaw Old Town
A highlight of any Polish city is its Old Town, but there are few quite like Warsaw’s Old Time. Here you can travel back in time, and immerse yourself in Polish culture.
2. Visit a Milk Bar
Milk Bars are not just traditional and a great place to get delicious food on a budget, they are a Polish institution! Do a bit of research online – or ask a local – and you’ll be sure to have a truly authentic Polish experience.
3. Katsushika Hokusai Passages Exhibition, Krakow
When in Poland, you don’t have to do everything Polish. Why not visit the works of an eminent printmaker and painter from the Edo period in Japan? These woodblock prints will seem familiar, as these have been highly influential on Japanese artwork – even today! Find out more here.
4. Warsaw Autumn Festival, Warsaw
Beginning in 1956, the International Festival of Contemporary Music is a highlight on the Polish calendar. Celebrating all things music, this festival sees acts from around the world visit the city and bring it to life with sound. See this year’s program here.
5. Wieliczka Salt Mine, Krakow
This Salt mine is roughly 700 years old and 300kms in size. Delve below and discover underground lakes, chapels, chambers and more!
6. Islands of Wroclaw
Unlike other parts of the country, the old town of Wroclaw is made up of a series of islands connected by bridges. Here you can wander over the canals, and visit the gothic Town Hall and the Salt Market square where you can enjoy local delights.
7. Auschwitz: Museum and Memorial, Krakow
Visiting Auschwitz is a truly sombre and emotional experience. It is a reminder of what people are capable of – both the good and the bad. It chronicles the history of the holocaust and a truly dark chapter of the world’s history.
8. Try Traditional Perogies
You simply can’t visit Poland without trying this local delicacy. Ask around, and you’re sure to get multiple recommendations for different places.
9. Warsaw Uprising Museum
This museum tells the story of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising using multimedia technology and design to take you back in time.
10. Wedel Chocolate Factory, Warsaw
Need we say more? If you have a sweet tooth, why not sample some of the best chocolate Poland has to offer? The factory is located in the city’s Praga district. You’re welcome!
