Poland is above all the charm of a country faithful to its traditions: religious fervor is one of the most important aspects of a stay in Warsaw or Krakow.
But that’s not all: the local cuisine, the colorful houses of the cities center and varied architecture in Poland still deserve at least a week.
Slavic tradition is still very present in Poland. Dance, music and architecture prove every day that two world wars and 40 years of Soviet presence and influence have not removed their culture to the Poles. I was not impressed with Poland. The life there was slow, not innovative.
I did like the beautiful fields of poppy flowers.
It is for this atmosphere that is just in Poland, but also for its lush forests, mountains and clear lakes.

The bus is probably the easiest way to travel in Poland many lines joining the main tourist attractions of the country from the big cities. This is also an opportunity, why not, to become acquainted with the Poles.
