Gdansk is very different from other Polish cities because it has a rich maritime history that dates back to the 7th century.
Poland has experienced many drastic changes throughout the 20th century, but its most beautiful sites remain the Town Hall, the Medieval Port, the Main Town (Reconstructed after WWII), and the Green Gate.
As Poland moved towards capitalism in the early 1990’s, Gdansk has attracted major IT and finance businesses to an economy that has been majorly dominated by industries in the energy and shipbuilding sectors. As a result, the demand for teachers with a reputable TESOL certificate has been on the rise. Poland is one of the few European countries that welcomes native-English speakers who do not have a EU citizenship, and is especially welcoming to TESOL graduates from Canada and USA.
Surrounded by the famous river Vistula, Warsaw is stretched over 172 square miles. Like major European cities, Warsaw has a mix of contemporary and old building styles. Due to this architectural blend, Warsaw has always been a popular tourist destination. The following are the places to visit in Warsaw:
• Lazienki Królewskie Park-Palace Complex
• Wilanow Park palace Complex
• Palace of Culture and Science
• Castle Square
• The President’s Palace
If you get a chance to walk through the markets of Warsaw, you should try one of the local delicious dishes, which include:
• Ruskie (Russian)
• Z Miesem (With meat)
• Z Kapusta (Cabbage)
• Z Grzybami (Mushroom)
