Poland – Wrocław, Poznań, Toruń, Gdańsk & Warsaw

We took a Flixbus from Kraków to Wrocław where we spent 3 nights. What a cute city to explore – home to over 600 bronze dwarfs and we probably stumbled upon half of them! Our hostel was located on the market square so we were perfectly situated to explore this beautiful city. We climbed 4 different towers for various vantage points of Wrocław, spent a full day at the world class zoo, and explored every nook and cranny of the city before catching a train to Poznań. The town square was unfortunately in the middle of major renovations but we still enjoyed checking out the old town. From Poznań we caught a train to Toruń, a UNESCO world heritage city on the Vistula River. It was an easy, compact city to explore on foot and we got the bonus of a sound and light fountain show at night. After leaving Toruń, we caught a bus to Gdańsk, a beautiful port city located on the Baltic coast of Poland. The main town was tastefully reconstructed after its destruction in WWII, with many of its buildings dating back to the 14th century. It was a stunning city to discover on foot and the rows of burghers’ houses seen from up high was an unforgettable sight. From Gdańsk, we hopped on a train for a day trip to the world’s largest castle, the 13th century Teutonic castle of Malbork which was well worth a visit. After leaving Gdańsk, we took a train back to Warsaw where we spent our last 2 nights in Poland in the old town. Poland was even more beautiful than we had hoped it would be and it was easy to explore via public transportation. Our next destination is the United Kingdom and we can’t wait!
