Vacations and Sightseeing

The tourism sector has grown significantly. In 2000, Poland was visited by 84.5 million foreigners, of which more than 17 million as tourists. There is still a serious shortage of mid-range accommodation.

International hotel chains are mainly located in the capital Warsaw and most tourist accommodations are located on the coast from the Baltic Sea, in the mountain regions and in the Mazoeri Lake District.

Many Western investors are already active in Poland.

Warsaw is the capital of Poland. After the Second World War, Warsaw's historic center, Stare Miasto, was restored with great care. This was done so well that it has been fully included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The old city district therefore forms démain landmark of Warsaw. The centerpiece of Stare Miasto is the old market square. Definitely recommended to visit are the Royal Castle, the well-preserved Barbican (original Warsaw city walls) and St. John's Cathedral.
