With Poland regarded as one of the most affordable cities you can visit, it’s a haven for solo travellers and backpackers. While amny people think of Krakow and Warsaw as being the only cities of interest here. this country has a vast and varied landscape and is full to brim with history and beautiful scenery. For the wanderlust in you, I’ve found the perfect Poland solo adventure using my Flight Finder tool and sourced a great mix of affordable Airbnb homes for each city.
Poland Solo Adventure
I’ve managed to find you an entire flat for your 2-night stay in Wroclaw that’s a complete bargain! This Airbnb is highly-rated by previous guests. It’s right in the city centre, meaning that you can enjoy the city’s lovely little cobblestone streets with pastel-coloured houses, picturesque parks and lovely riverside walks. Be sure to check out the massive Panorama of the Battle of Racławice and the beautiful and historic Ostrów Tumski quarter during your two nights.
During your spell in Krakow, you can expect the Old Town where your Airbnb is located to be bustling and charming. If you stop by the Rynek Glowny, or main square, you’ll find landmarks such as the Cloth Hall and the St. Mary’s Basilica. Be sure to hike up to Wawel Castle and later, stop by Kazimierz, Krakow’s Jewish district. For your next stop, I recommend buying a cheap coach bus or direct train which will take you from Krakow to Zakopane.
Zakopane is probably not a city you’ve heard of before, but I’m sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised! At the foothill of the Tatras, this is the perfect way to wrap up your trip. You’ll find fresh mountain air, hiking trails and gorgeous wooden villas. You’ll be staying in a gorgeous wooden chalet here for three nights. This soulful guesthouse has a fabulous view of the mountains and you’ll be content with the hosts’ homemade meals.
Zakopane to London
It’s not too difficult to get from Zakopane to Poprad in Slovakia. If you travel in summer season between 16th June – 15th October then take a STRAMA company. They offer a connection Zakopane – Lysa Polana /SVK-POL state border/ – Zdiar – Stary Smokovec and Poprad 5 times a day in summer season. The price of a single ticket is about 2-4 EUR. Don’t forget, Poland uses the Zloty and Slovakia uses the Euro!
