Send us your questions about selling Polish city breaks for a chance to win a weekend for two – flights included!
The Polish Tourism Organisation has teamed up with Travel Weekly to host a training webinar on how to sell city breaks – but first, we want to know what questions you have to ask.
With many travellers prioritising short-haul destinations and budget-friendly breaks, there’s never been a better time to brush up on your product knowledge of key European locations.
We will be joined by representatives from Poland’s most-popular city-break destinations – Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz and Poznan – to look at each city’s must-see sights and selling points, plus practical information on how to get there.
First, we need to know what burning questions you have about each of these cities – with prizes to be won! Do you want to know the city’s biggest highlights, coolest districts or newest restaurants and bars? Do you want to ask the best time of year to visit, the best place to stay, or how to reassure clients about health and hygiene?
Tell us what you need to know to help you sell each of the following cities, and you will be entered into a prize draw to win a weekend break for two to Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz or Poznan, with flights and accommodation in a three or four-star hotel. Terms and conditions apply.
Wander through the capital’s old town – full of cafes, cobbled streets and colourful houses – and you are actually seeing a 20th-century recreation of its original architecture, destroyed during the Second World War. Yet buildings are only part of the story – nearly half the city is made up of gardens and green spaces, from the sprawling palace lawns of Łazienki Park to the peaceful banks and biking trails of the Vistula River.
This buzzing city is the country’s cultural capital thanks to a busy events calendar filled with celebrations of art, theatre, music, film and food. Just look out for stages set up in Market Square or Plac Nowy for free band performances, or feast on food festivals dedicated to everything from paczki (doughnuts) to pierogi (dumplings). In between, admire its array of architectural styles or delve into the depths of the popular Wieliczka Salt Mine.
Often described as the Manchester of Poland, this city – whose name is pronounced ‘woodge’ – is emerging from its post-industrial decline with a cool, artsy vibe much beloved by millennials. Expect former factories turned fashion boutiques, food trucks dishing out modern takes on classics such as borscht or pierogi, and hipster bars pouring small-batch IPAs and local brews.
This under-the-radar city is the perfect size to explore on a weekend break. Stroll through the Old Market Square to see the Old Town Hall where, at noon each day, two mechanical billy goats glide out of the clock tower and butt heads 12 times, a charming tradition that has been running since 1551. As the birthplace of Poland, it’s home to palaces, castles and cathedrals, plus the signature St Martin’s Croissant, a horseshoe-shaped pastry filled with white poppy seeds.
Submit your questions below by July 24 for your chance to win, then look out for the Polish Tourism Organisation city breaks webinar and live prize draw on July 29.
