The internationally-respected travel publisher has placed Poland at number 7 in its list, citing Wrocław and Kraków as major hotspots for the year ahead.
Lonely Planet makes the world’s best-selling travel guides and has been a trusted information source for intrepid travellers for decades. Their annual list of top 10 countries to visit is based around their intimate knowledge of travel trends and followed by millions.
Placing Poland at 7th place on their list for 2016, Lonely Planet writes:
Recession-defying Poland has superpowers – while the rest of Europe descended into the doldrums, visitor numbers here climbed and there’s no end to the boom in sight as Wrocław prepares for a stint as European Capital of Culture 2016. Kraków will have a turn in the limelight too when the Pope arrives to celebrate World Youth Day, and new air routes to Kraków, Szczecin, Katowice, and Gdańsk means this is a destination on the rise.
