Poland is an amazing place to visit; it’s cheap, the food is amazing, and you’re guaranteed breath-taking views, no matter where you are in the country. Warsaw and Kraków are the most popular tourist destinations but this year, we suggest ditching the typical spots and instead, recommend a trip up North to the wonderful Gdańsk. Every year, The Coal Market in the Old Town transforms into a winter wonderland with stalls selling food, drinks, Christmas decorations and beautiful handmade goods. If you don’t want to just shop and gorge on fine food, The Coal Market has a pretty impressive events schedule with light shows, Christmas Carols, sledding competitions and much more! So, grab your favourite puffer coat, mittens and hat because this is one festive spot you won’t want to miss!
