Public Holidays in Poland

By law Poland has 13 Public Holidays and they are a great time to go urban exploring, hiking or even chill by the beach.

If you are planning on travelling within Poland during these holidays, please note that most places will be shut down. Yeah, we kinda take our public holidays very seriously! Though, in the Tricity, you will find a lot going on, on the beaches, public spaces and restaurants.
