Brits among top three visiting nationalities to Poland in 2018

The UK was in the top three visiting nationalities to Poland in 2018, according to a Polish Tourism Organisation survey.

This has been the second consecutive year for the British tourists to be ranked among the top three visiting nationalities. They are among the most likely to travel to Poland in 2019 as well.

In 2018, there were a total of 1,135,000 arrivals from the UK to Poland with 920,000 tourist visits, the Polish Ministry of Sport and Tourism announced.

Poland is increasingly recognised for its culinary excellence, rich history and value for money. Last year, Kraków was named the inaugural European Capital of Gastronomic Culture for 2019, Łódz was ranked as the second-best value destination worldwide by Lonely Planet and Poznań was named the best city break in Europe by European Best Destinations.

The continued growth in visitors from the UK can be attributed to trend indicators showing British travellers have been increasingly looking for alternative destinations to visit.

In 2018 over a quarter (27%) of holidaymakers planned to visit a new country and a third (32%) expected to visit a new resort or city, according to ABTA’s 2018 Travel Trends Report.

Iwona Bialobrzycka, director at the Polish Tourism Organisation, said: “We are truly delighted that for the second consecutive year, British tourists were amongst the top three visitors to Poland in 2018. It shows that our country has become quite a popular holiday destination and the image of Poland has changed over the last years. Poland is getting to be recognised not only for its complicated history but also as a place where you can spend a lovely holiday. Whether you are into culture or nature you will find in Poland places which suit you perfectly.”
