Photos of castles, palaces, fortresses, temples, cathedrals, monasteries - Poland

It is possible to evaluate the sights of Poland only by abandoning all prejudices and looking with an open heart, not comparing it with others. Believe me, this country will force you to reconsider all ideas about the beautiful. Here, medieval castles and Gothic cathedrals are intertwined with glossy business centers and chic restaurants, reflecting the spirit of free artists and abandoned remnants of the communist era. And the cozy romantic landscapes of the countryside charm the picturesque ruins of ancient fortresses and the surviving temples with unpretentious design and soothing beauty.
