An essential for visitors to Poland
By Tom - April 10, 2010
Poland is a bit of an enigma compared to the much more popular destination spots of Western Europe. This quick guide introduces visitors to the customs and etiquette norms of Poland. Very well done. If you're planning on a trip to Poland for business or pleasure and you don't know much about the country and its people I would highly recommend this book along with the DK Eyewitness Travel Guide and Adam Zamoyski's history, "Poland."
