Bordering the Baltic Sea, the eastern European country of Poland is one of the largest countries on the continent and a destination for history buffs, largely due to centuries of fascinating, often troubling Jewish history. Travelers will likely visit Warsaw, the vibrant, modern capital city, and Krakow, a rich cultural destination with one of the most picturesque old towns in all of Europe.
