Vacation is nearly over and it’s only a matter of days before the kids will go back to school. And with your busy schedule at the office, you haven’t really spent some quality time with your family.
However, you can still have a chance to bond with them as this month LaIsla will bring you to Poland. Take the time to relax and have fun with your loved ones as you stroll around the country.
Poland is surrounded by the Baltic Sea and Russia in the North, the countries of Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine in the East, Germany in the West, and the countries of Czech Republic and Slovakia in the South. Its name was said to derive from Polanie, a Slavic indigenous tribe who initially settled in the area during the 5th century. During the 1700s, the country was separated into three by its neighboring countries: Russia, Prussia and Austria. Only in 1918 did the Poland restore its state and reclaim leadership.
Visit the various cathedrals of Poland and learn to appreciate their gothic charm and beauty. Among the interminable list is St. Mary’s Cathedral. Also known as the Church of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven, this basilica is famous for its wooden altarpiece and the two looming towers.
Don’t miss the chance to visit other ancient edifices that make up the country’s rich history. Among them are Lublin Castle and the Wawel Castle. While the Lublin Palace was first constructed in the 12th century by the order of High Duke Casimir II the Just, Wawel Castle on the other hand was erected through the initiative of Casimir III the Great. Moreover, enter the old town hall of Wroclaw City. Although the structure has long served its trade and civic activities, it is now a museum that showcases many historical artefacts.
But, if you’re one of those individuals who fancies modern structures better, Warsaw City has something in store for you. Visit the tallest building in the country, the Palace of Culture and Science. Other attractions found in the city are the Krasiński Palace, the Łazienki Palace, and the Presidential Palace.
And as a last destination, follow the trail that leads to the Eye of the Sea Lake. The area is considered as the largest and fourth deepest lake in the Tatra Mountains. Before you fly back home, make it a point to spend at least a day or two in the Sea Towers, a residential building that overlooks the Baltic Sea and the Gdynia City. While inside, prepare a board game for the family or have a sumptuous dinner where you can all share your favorite parts of the trip and get to know each other better.
Families are a treasure to thank for, so spend some quality time with them and make it an aim to create timeless memories. Remember, life is too short to spend it enclosed within the four corners of your office. Take every possible chance to bond with your family as you travel and discover the glamor that is Poland.
