  • Information


First as the powerful bulwark of Christendom against the East in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and then as the victim of rapacious neighbours, Poland's fate has been central to European culture.

Her turbulent history has left a wealth of monuments and historic landscapes that have been virtually hidden from the rest of the world.

This guide explores Poland's remarkable heritage in full, with comprehensive coverage of art and architecture, and with introductions to the more recent contributions in film, music and theatre.

The contents of this second, revised edition include introductions to Poland's history and culture, detailed tours and practical information.
