If skiing and hiking is what you are looking for, then Poland should be a serious contender for you. Almost all the southern border of Poland is mountainous, quite different from the rest of Poland. On the border with Slovakia, the rocky Tatra Mountains tower above the plains with the famous holiday resort of Zakopane, which every season bustles with holidaymakers. Other extremely picturesque regions of Poland include the Pieniny and the Karkonosze Mountains. Should you prefer to explore less developed areas, travel to the Beskid Mountains and explore the wilderness of the Bieszczady. Mountain holidays in Poland can be wonderful, no matter if you plan to visit the mountains in the winter or in summer. So wax your skis before the winter season and visit a Polish mountain resort, or find your hiking shoes to explore picturesque countryside and enjoy a summer holiday in the Polish mountains.
