Poland Mini Guide

Situated in central Europe, Poland is a huge country which has a coastline on the Baltic Sea and borders with Belarus, the Czech Republic, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Slovakia, and the Ukraine. Poland has a diverse landscape with woods, lakes, seas, beaches, rivers and plenty of wildlife living in the countryside. Its main cities are Warsaw, Kraków, Gdansk, Poznan, Lódz, Wroclaw and Szczecin. Poland has had a rich and at times troubled history and suffered greatly during World War Two and under Communism.

Warsaw's Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW) in Okecie receives the majority of International flights into Poland. Other major airports in Poland are Szczecin-Goleniów (SZZ), Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport (GDN), Kraków-Balice (KRK), Katowice-Pyrzowice (KTW), Poznan-Lawica (POZ), Wroclaw Copernicus Airport (WRO), Rzeszów-Jasionka (RZE), Bydgoszcz Ignacy Jan Paderewski Airport (BZG) and Lódz Wladyslaw Reymont Airport (LCJ). Among the airlines which go to Poland are many low cost carriers such as easyJet, Wizzair, Germanwings, Norwegian, and Ryanair. The Polish national carrier is Lot. There are a number of domestic flights which operate within Poland itself.

The speed limits in Poland are 50 kilometres per hour in a city, 90 kilometres outside the city, 100 kilometres on car-only roads (which is designated by a white car on a blue sign) and 130 kilometres on highways. Two things to watch out for when driving through Poland are slow moving vehicles and aggressive drivers. There are a number of large trucks on the roads in Poland which you may need to overtake. It is worth bearing in mind that many Polish people drive quite aggressively and so will overtake hurriedly and unsafely.
