A postcard from Poland

After they type in the search engine the phrase “nature in Poland” foreign tourists may get nystagmus: a variety of landscapes multiplied by seasons of the year can make them feel dizzy. Suggestions of where to find the most beautiful and interesting places in Poland can be looked for in the tourist information office, in the guides, the richly illustrated photo albums.

 

The beauty of Poland all year round

Snow-capped peaks in the middle of winter are a completely different view than the mountain pastures full of purple and yellow crocuses in spring or autumn slopes coloured in red and orange. The Baltic Sea is ice-cold, grey and windy – but a summer seaside landscape consists of blue sky, white manes of waves and bright, fine sand…beaches to the horizon. Forests in a spring are filled with singing birds, a summer invites you to wild strawberries and berries, in an autumn they attract mushroom pickers. A winter-a sleigh!
