Poland

Temper the solemnity of Auschwitz with some nature therapy in a national park preserving ancient woodlands and Europe's largest sand dunes. Gothic castles, baroque monasteries and old wooden mosques illuminate the religious diversity in this stable, thriving democracy. Sopot on the Baltic Sea attracts the hip and clubbing crowd. The birthplace of vodka also makes some of the best beers in the world.

Weather

The best time to visit is May-September. Summer days can be hot, but take a sweater for evenings. Winters are wet, cold, dreary and not a great time to visit unless you're interested in skiing (December-April). In May and June, the fields are overrun by wildflowers: poppies, cornflowers and daisies. October is also a good time to go, because the weather is mild and there are no crowds.
