Poland is an eastern European country on the Baltic Sea known for its medieval architecture and Jewish heritage. Warsaw, the capital, has shopping and nightlife, plus the Warsaw Uprising Museum, honoring the city’s WWII-era resistance to German occupation. In the city of Kraków, 14th-century Wawel Castle rises above the medieval old town, home to Cloth Hall, a Renaissance trading post in Rynek Glówny (market square).
We visited Poland in August 2017 and stayed at the Hilton Warsaw Hotel and Convention Center. We explored Warsaw and Krakow including Warsaw Old Town, Royal Castle Warsaw, Warsaw Rising Museum, Wawel Royal Castle, the Krackow Main Square and the Wieliczka Salt Mine.
