Churches; some as old as 9th century surprise with diversity of styles and interiors. Many temples are popular places of pilgrimage, welcoming the faithful from all over the world. Modern architecture - skyscrapers, business centres and stadiums bring cities on a par with their West European counterparts.

Seasons
The continental climate of Poland, means there are four clearly defined seasons in the year. Spring; March - May, Summer; June - August, Autumn; September -November and Winter; December - February. Hot summers lend to holidaying by the lakes or the sea, and mountains stand by for those looking for cooler breezes. Winter - cold and usually very snowy - is a perfect opportunity for skiing in the mountains or admiring rough sea waves.  Autumn and spring are great for city breaks or hiking in the mountains.
