While most of us here in Shanghai just started bracing ( mainly mentally) for winter time, the home country of pierogi – Poland – is already the picture perfect land of frozen in most parts of the little kingdom. In this post check out the most stunning ,must – visit places in Poland for the next few months!
One of the most spectacular winter resorts in Poland. Since it is located at the bottom of Izerskie mountains, it is the only resort in the country that prides itself in Alpine microclimate. Neighboring Polana Jakuszycka is the most modern center for ski running in Poland.
Perfect destination for experienced backpackers, who can rent snow – rackets or ski running equipment. Besides that you can embrace your winter on the horse-drawn carriages in the area. The snowboarders and skiers won’t be disappointed by the slopes either!
The place you want to visit is Beskid Śląski with the skiing ‘capital’ – Szczyrk. It’s the place where Poland borders with Czech and Slovakia. Cosy villages, skiing slopes – wonderful winter landscape.
4. KRYNICA ZDRÓJ
Besides great quality skiing slopes , the longest sleigh track in Poland and sleigh rides, Krynica also offers a big variery of mineral water houses and old, wooden heritage buildings from 19th century scattered around.
The coldest spot in Poland, with temperatures around -25 Celcius degrees. You can even try ice-fishing here!

With the Hercules club and Pieskowa rock in the background, the trees covered with tiny frozen drops of fog look simply magical in winter. Peaceful place, prefect for winter meditation walk!
In winter, vast surfaces of impressive Polish lakes turn into gigantic, sparkling ice rinks and and fans of yachting switch to …iceboats called ‘bojery’! Another unique activity that you can enjoy only here is the sleigh ride, where an airboat will replace the horse!
