Visiting Poland is a whirlwind journey through the ages in medieval cities like Kraków, Baltic Sea resort towns like Kolobrzeg, a cosmopolitan Warsaw with its Gothic churches and neoclassical palaces or scenic Zakopane in the Tatras Mountains. The Poles took advantage of the bounty of ancient palaces, castles, old barns, and even old gyms and created modern hotels that preserve much of the historical charm of the old structures. Rooms and suites come in a range of prices and levels of luxury, but most have expected facilities such as private bathrooms, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs. Most hotels have their own restaurants where guests can sample traditional Polish cuisine or international fare. Pools, bars, spas, and gyms are also regular features of most Polish hotels.
