Easy weekend expat breaks from Poland
August 2, 2017
The summer is here, the weather is nice and you have some time off. This is a sign that… it is time to travel! If you are an expat in Poland– or about to become one-, you might be wondering which are the best cities to explore.
Here some tips with our summer 2017 recommendations.
Surrounded by hills and sea, Barcelona is one of the top destinations in the Mediterranean Sea. A lively city, with a unique architecture – who hasn’t heard about Gaudi’s work and the Sagrada Familia? – and plenty of sunny beaches, Barcelona is one of the most diverse and cosmopolitan cities in Europe.
If you are looking for a sunny destination in a busy lifestyle, then Barcelona is your choice.
If you want to be away from beaches and the sea, but still visiting a lively and sunny destination, you might want to consider having a weekend in Budapest. In the capital of Hungary, located on the shore of the Danube, you will find from castles and museums to thermal baths, without forgetting an attractive nightlife.
The Danube divides the city in two, but it marks its spirit. To explore it, you can take a guided boat tour on the river or, even better, a dinner cruise at the sunset.
World-wide known for its Guinness beer, Dublin has much more to offer – no matter if you arrive there on a sunny or rainy day. Cobblestone and small streets, painted houses and spacious public parks and gardens, Dublin is discovered the best in summer, when the days are longer and the weather warmer than in other seasons.
Visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Guinness storehouse or do a stopover in one of the city’s museums, such as the National Gallery of Ireland or the Museum of Modern Art. However, if the weather allows it, it is always a good idea to enjoy the National Botanical Gardens or Dublin’s Zoo – especially if you are visiting the city with children!
If a warm weather is not your top priority in your summer break, then Stockholm should be on your must-see list. The Swedish capital offers a unique combination of new and old, tradition and innovation. Do you want to visit a museum? An open-air one? A ship museum? A more conventional art museum? Or maybe one related to music, such as the ABBA museum? Stockholm offers you all and more!
