Poland: Shopping Holiday

A country with new world cuisine, a bustling nightlife and a haunting past

Although Poland may not be a traditional shoppers paradise, it is growing in reputation as a great place for shopping for antiques, artwork, jewellery and traditional handicrafts. Throughout Poland, shoppers can pick up great bargains and it's worth keeping your eye out for some of the locally produced craft ware. Pottery, amber and silver jewellery and as well as lace and glass work are all popular handicraft materials found all over the country, whilst in the mountains popular souvenirs include sheepskin products and oscypek (smoked sheep's cheese).
