- Białowieża Forest, because: “Unesco-listed Bialowieża is the last remaining expanse of the vast forest that once spread across the European plain. The forest is home to around 900 bison (…). The forest is also prowled by elk, wolves and lynx”. The author of the ranking writes also about Poland’s legendary bisongrass vodka, Żubrówka.
- Kraków and Wieliczka Salt Mine;
- Wrocław – European Capital of Culture 2016;
- Łódź – “19th-century mansions and cafe-strewn Piotrkowska Street, is abuzz with redevelopment”;
- Szczecin – Old Town and the golf courses in Binowo Park;
