„You praise what is foreign not knowing your own” is a popular Polish saying (and, originally, a quote from a Polish poet) and we can’t think of a phrase that could work better as a tagline for our culinary travel around the country. When browsing through must-visit places in Poland you’ll surely come across Krakow, …
‘Travelling through Poland is awesome. This is truly beautiful! We have to show it to others!’ This is what you could hear us shout when we were coming back from Krakow 2 years ago after launching the second branch of Eat Polska. It is 2016 now and we’re lucky to have a team of guides big enough to allow some of us to leave the cities and explore regions of Poland that have lured us forever. This is how we (Beata and Michał) have recently spent a week village-and-palace-hopping in Dolny Śląsk (Lower Silesia) which is one of the most mesmerizing regions of Poland you absolutely mustn’t miss when visiting our country.
If they tell you: ‘It’s the end of August, time to start thinking about getting cold’, you should only interpret it one way: time for ice cream! Poland is the country where ‘lody’ is one of the most popular signs in touristy places but are all those places worth a visit? Come on, let’s find out where you can try the best craft and interesting ice cream in Warsaw and take your mom, dad, children, friends or strangers to share this tangible and simple happiness!
We’ve all heard that a good breakfast is a must. It boosts your energy and you lose weigh.. Not.
Still, at Eat Polska we all like to relax, hang out with friends, and get ready for a new day. We’ve made it through a bunch of popular (and off-the beaten track) breakfast spots to choose the ones we like most. So when you’re in Warsaw, you need to check them out.
You’ve made it to Poland and you have a to-do list. You know that you have to see the Old Town in Warsaw, the Cloth Hall in Kraków, and you need (not!) to lick walls in Wieliczka salt mine. You want to try some good Polish vodka, Polish kiełbasa, and Polish pierogi (‘pierogi’ is plural, so we don’t say ‘pierogis’). You are seated in a restaurant and you’re trying to make it through the menu. You know that feta, sun-dried tomatoes, or smoked salmon do not sound very Polish, but there are so many options. What to choose, which filling is the best? Here is our top 5!
Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day for a reason. Not only does it give us the energy for the day, it can be super delicious and versatile as well: sweet, savory or both! Remember, you have a whole day to burn off any extra calories, so you can really indulge. Although we don’t really have classic and iconic „Polish breakfast”, we know how to enjoy this meal. In Kraków you can choose from a variety of great breakfast options ranging from quick snacks to real feasts. Check out our guide and have a great breakfast experience in Kraków.
