Holidays in Poland or Abroad?

Holidays are a time we wait for all year long. We dream of moments of relaxation, a break from daily responsibilities, and recharging our batteries for the coming months. We consider whether to spend the holidays in Poland or abroad.

Both options have their pros and cons, and the choice depends on many factors. Let’s take a closer look at both possibilities.

Holidays in Poland

“You don’t know your own, and you praise others” – this saying remains relevant. Poland is a beautiful country where we are lucky to have access to both beautiful high mountains and the sea. Let’s not forget the stunning lake district and numerous landscape and national parks. Perhaps it’s worth challenging yourself and visiting places you haven’t been to yet this holiday. Visit the beautiful Ojcowski National Park, feel like you’re in Switzerland for a moment, and be sure to visit the nearby Pieskowa Skała Castle, a branch of the Royal Castle on Wawel.

Or maybe you want to discover something extraordinary? The Crooked Forest near the village of Nowe Czarnowo (40 km from Szczecin) is an unusual natural curiosity where over 400 distinctively curved Scots pines grow on an area of less than 2 hectares. These trees, estimated to be about 75 years old, have trunks bent at heights from 10 to 50 cm above the ground, and their origin remains a mystery to this day.

Are you looking for the most beautiful beach on the Polish coast? If so, be sure to visit Dębki! A long, wide beach with white sand like flour will make you want to return every holiday.

Holidays in Poland – Advantages and Disadvantages

The advantages of holidays in Poland include proximity; regardless of your place of residence, Polish holiday destinations are within reach, meaning shorter travel, less stress, and more time to relax. The costs of such a holiday are also significantly lower compared to trips abroad, as there’s no need to worry about currency exchange or high air travel costs. Exploring Poland gives you the opportunity to better understand your own history and culture, discovering unique traditions, cuisine, and architecture of many cities and regions.

What do we fear most when choosing a holiday in Poland? Of course, the weather, which can be unpredictable – even in the middle of summer, you can encounter a rainy week. To mitigate this, it’s worth booking accommodation with a heated indoor pool, jacuzzi, and sauna. Then, even during bad weather, you can count on having a good time.

Holidays Abroad

Of course, there are many people who, every year, in search of the perfect holiday, choose distant destinations. There is so much to see! Wonderful national parks in Canada, geysers, caves, and beautiful lakes in New Zealand, or multicultural Singapore are just some of the places worth visiting. When going to such a distant place, it is worth booking a 3-week or even longer vacation to see as much as possible. Such a trip allows for full immersion in the local culture and nature. You can bring back beautiful photos, memories, and souvenirs that will remind you of the wonderful moments spent at the end of the world.

Holidays Abroad – Advantages and Disadvantages

Holidays abroad have many advantages. By choosing southern countries, you have almost guaranteed sunny weather, which is important for many tourists. International travels allow you to discover new cultures, languages, and traditions, providing an excellent opportunity to broaden horizons and gain new experiences. The world offers countless places to discover, from exotic beaches to bustling metropolises, and each trip abroad is a new adventure. Many foreign resorts offer all-inclusive options, meaning no worries about food, drinks, and many on-site attractions.

However, holidays abroad also have their disadvantages. International travel can be expensive, especially when you add the costs of flights, insurance, and currency exchange. In some places, knowledge of foreign languages is essential, which can be a problem for people who don’t know any. Moreover, in case of any problems, such as health issues, you are farther from home and it may be more difficult to get help.

Increasingly, it is said that holidays in Poland are more expensive than abroad. It cannot be denied that due to inflation, prices have risen significantly. Much also depends on the chosen destination. In many places in Asian countries, it can be cheaper, although you have to pay more for plane tickets. In Europe, prices in many places are already comparable, and choosing popular spots like Dubrovnik in Croatia, you may be shocked at the cost of basic food products.

What to Choose?

The choice between holidays in Poland and abroad depends on individual preferences, budget, and expectations. If you value comfort, proximity, and want to get to know your own country better, holidays in Poland may be the ideal solution. They can be even more enjoyable if you choose year-round cottages by the sea, such as Fantazja Dębki. New wooden cottages with a living room and kitchenette on the ground floor and two bedrooms upstairs, with access to a covered pool – will guarantee that even during capricious weather, you will not be bored. Moreover, there are many attractions in the area!

Regardless of where you decide to spend your holiday, the most important thing is that it is full of relaxation, joy, and unforgettable moments. Enjoy each day, rest, and collect beautiful memories that will accompany you throughout the year.
