Where I’ve Been – Moje Podróże W Polsce

NI Man in Poland Bydgoszcz

Northern Irishman in Poland backpacking in Bydgoszcz

I have travelled in quite a few different parts of Poland already, having first visited the country in 2005 and returned many times since, before decided to live here permanently from July 2016. As a long term travel writer for 14 years, I also visited Polish Antarctica in 2010. This page will show where I have been so far and places I continue to travel to, you can stay tuned on my Facebook Page and Instagram Feed too!

*those in bold I have visited

The total area of Poland is 312,679 square kilometres (120,726 sq mi), making it the 69th largest country in the world and the 9th largest in Europe. With a population of over 38.5 million people, Poland is the 34th most populous country in the world, the 8th most populous country in Europe and the sixth most populous member of the European Union, as well as the most populous post-communist member of the European Union. As well as this 38.5 million population, it is believed that double this quantity of Polish people live around the world, with high populations in Chicago, Boston, New York, London and Dublin. Poland is a unitary state divided into 16 administrative subdivisions, known officially as Vovoideships and its capital and largest city is Warsaw. Other metropolises include Kraków, Wrocław, Poznań, Gdańsk (City Hat-trick with Sopot and Gdynia) and Szczecin—the country’s largest urban agglomeration is the Silesian Metropolis. There is a lot of Poland to discover still, but so far I have made it to these places. I aim to have toured all 20 of the list above by the end of December 2017.
