Poland is situated in the heart of Europe, at a crossing of roads and cultures. Its boundaries are formed by the Baltic Sea to the North; Germany to the West, the Czech and Slovak Republics to the South; Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania and Russia to the East. Poland is close – easily accessible from all parts of the world by air, by car, coach and train. It offers excellent hotels, affordable prices and good services. Ten years ago it was unthinkable, but today this area is not just back in Europe, it is the centre of its vitality, able at last to display the landscapes, architecture and culture which are the heritage of a reunited continent.
