When traveling around Poland, the Kujawsko-Pomorskie region is often overlooked. Located in the north of the country, it doesn’t have direct access to the Baltic Sea, that’s why most tourists decide to go further up, to Gdansk or other coastal towns. There are many amazing places to visit in Kujawsko Pomorskie Poland though.
If you have enough time to travel to this beautiful province, don’t miss it. From the lovely towns to the unique Biskupin archeological site– the Cuiavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship has a lot to offer.
