What To Pack?

A camera - Whether it's the architectural delights of Krakow or the beauty of the Tatra Mountains, there's a lot to aim your camera at here.

Alka seltzer - Polish vodka is good. Very good! There may be a hangover or two in store.

An umbrella - Changeable weather means the prospect of rain is never far away, even in summer.

Comfortable shoes - Want to get the best out of cities like Krakow and Gdansk? Prepare to cover some ground on foot.

An adapter plug - Poland uses the European standard 2-pin plug. Any appliances that run on USA voltage will need a transformer.
