Where a skiing holiday can be combined with a culture trip.
Poland is well known for its culture, medieval cities and hospitality – less so for its skiing. This is changing. The Tatras mountains, which straddle the border with Slovakia south of Krakow, are a stunning range of peaks up to 2,600m that are home to wolves, bears and wildlife. The ski resorts are situated in the foothills closer to the city. They’re small, still developing and sometimes not as slick as their Alpine counterparts. But the lifts are modern and what they offer is an intimate network of easy slopes for skiers looking for somewhere culturally interesting, and a mountain break that can be combined with a trip to a city.
