Updated on April 17, 2015

Sopot, one of the main tourist destinations in Northern Poland is four hours by rail from Warsaw. Foreign tourists who fly to Poland’s capital city and travel further north will find themselves in an unforgettable place where they can relax and unwind. The best time to enjoy the Baltic Sea is from June to August, when the waters are warm and soothing. If you want to steer away from the crowds, you can explore further inland and immerse in discovering the medieval wonders of Torun and Malbork.

If you want a less crowded beach, then September is the best time to drive north. You can have the white sandy beaches all to yourself, and avail of the diverse forms of entertainment offered by the hotels, restaurants, cafes, and shops dotting the shore. When the heat is on, locals schedule one exciting event after another. You have the choice to watch beach sports events, triathlon races, sailing competitions and much more. If you would rather sit quietly on the beach and enjoy the sound of the waves, then that is your prerogative. Summer is also a good time to explore freshwater locations in the northeast region. The region of Mazury has plenty of rivers and lakes to explore with kayaks and paddle boards.
