COMMENTS ABOUT Poland:
Poland is a country in central Europe that shares borders with six countries, including Germany to the west and Ukraine to the east, as well as a shoreline along the Baltic Sea. The climate here is rather temperate, with warm summers and cold winters that dictate seasonal tourism. Poland has a great deal to attract visitors, both in natural areas of scenic beauty and outdoor sports and in a very rich cultural and historical diversity.
Visitors travel to Poland for a variety of reasons, one of which includes a sort of pilgrimage that is made by Holocaust survivors and others who visit places like the concentration camps of Auschwitz and Treblinka, and the Jewish Ghetto of Krakow and its historic town center, all of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Visitors to Krakow also tour places like the Wieliczk Salt Mines, and the Piescola Skala Castle.
There are several beautiful national parks in Poland where visitors enjoy hiking, climbing, and other outdoor adventures in the Bieszczady Mountains, the Pieniny National Park and Tatra National Park. The Masurian Lake District and the Baltic Sea Coast areas attract many tourists who enjoy beaches and water sports. Sailing, kayaking and swimming are enjoyed in Sniardwy Lake in this area surrounded by forests and infiltrated with rivers and lakes that are also great for fly fishing. A UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is located in the Masurian Landscape Park at Luknajno Lake. Wolin is an island in the Baltic Sea that is a popular tourist destination in northwestern Poland, especially for the annual Viking Festival, the largest of its kind in Europe.
Warsaw is another historical city with a wide range of attractions, such as the Royal Route with the Presidential Palade, and the Powazki Cemetery, one of the oldest in Europe. The Saxon Gardens and the Royal Baths Park are memorable and lovely, and many visitors enjoy seeing the medieval castles and Romanesque churches in outlying regions such as Mokotow and Ursynow. Marie Curie was also born in Warsaw and the Radium Institute that she founded displays a great deal about her work in the treatment of cancer.

Guide Licensing Information for Poland
Poland offers a wide range of tourist attractions that are scattered all around the country. There are many natural parks, medieval towns, places associated with modern history and art centers that are worth visiting. That is why there are a lot of tour guides to be found in Poland, nearly all of which are officially licensed. Since Poland makes part of the European Union the licensing regulation and monitoring is very strict and includes substantial fines for those who arenít able to show a valid license upon request. So itís very unlikely to find wild tour guides, unless the tours are aimed at general interest topics such as night clubs, shopping or restaurants.†
In order to get a license the applicant has to be a legally adult citizen of Poland or any other EU state, or have a working permit, speak Polish fluently and have knowledge of at least one foreign language. Guide training can be received at many guiding schools and courses all over the country, nearly all of which are authorized by the Polish Ministry of Sports and Tourism. After completing the courses the applicant will have to pass the state exam, which will evaluate their knowledge in culture, history, economics, arts and other domains of Polish life. By passing the exam the guide will get an ID card with their license number, which should be present all the time when rendering guiding services.
