Direction: peaceful vacation
In Poland, you will find many places that are ideally suited to spend time in a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. Most often affects the local climate and the lack of many tourists in this area. In which the Polish side should you choose if you want to spend your holidays in nature? The answer to this question is not simple. Many attractive tourist regions is visited by crowds of tourists and this means that we have less and less contact with the located there flora and fauna. Therefore, we plan a vacation outside the tourist season then Gorce, Tatry and around Biebrza will certainly be much more peaceful than if we would choose in this area, for example, in the summer.
Lower Silesia - elemental info
Lower Silesia (Polish: Dolny ÅšlÄ…sk; Czech: DolnÃ Slezsko, Latin: Silesia Inferior; German: Niederschlesien; Silesian German: NiederschlÃ¤sing; Silesian: Dolny ÅšlÅ¯nsk) is the northwestern part of the historical and geographical region of Silesia; Upper Silesia is to the southeast.
Throughout its history Lower Silesia has been under the control of the medieval Kingdom of Poland, the Kingdom of Bohemia and the Austrian Habsburg Monarchy from 1526. In 1742 nearly all of the region was annexed by the Kingdom of Prussia and became part of the German Empire in 1871, except for a small part which formed the southern part of the Lower Silesian Duchy of Nysa and had been incorporated into Austrian Silesia in 1742. After 1945 the main part of the former Prussian Province of Lower Silesia fell to the Republic of Poland, while a smaller part west of the Oder-Neisse line remained within East Germany
