Why Poland? From impressive natural beauty to rich history and mouthwatering food, Poland—which recently was named by Lonely Planet’s “Best in Travel” series as the most interesting and noteworthy country for tourists—is the only European country to have avoided a recession and is now reaping the benefits of an economic and visitor boom.

Poland boasts 14 unique UNESCO World Heritage sites, and several are featured on A.C.T.’s tour, including the picturesque historical Old Towns of Warsaw and Krakow. There is a vibrant cultural life in the capital, Warsaw, with its hip bars, vegan restaurants, and alternative clubs (many call it the new Berlin!). Krakow, on the other hand, will charm you with its picturesque cobbled streets, historical landmarks, craft shops, and cozy cafes. All this, combined with beautiful medieval churches and stunning landscapes, makes the country one of the most alluring European destinations.
