Poland Forecasts Increase in Summer Tourism Due to Climate Change

0

Poland is expected to become one of the countries that will witness an increase in summer tourism due to the northward shift of holidaymakers driven by climate change, according to the CEO of travel company TUI.

As the Notes From Poland reports, with its 770 kilometres (480 miles) of coastline, a significant portion of which features sandy beaches, the country is well-positioned to attract these tourists.

Poland’s Baltic coastline has historically been a favoured summer spot among its own residents, yet in recent times, it has gained increasing attention from international visitors as well.

Outside the realm of the Baltic coastline, the capital city of Poland, Warsaw, has garnered attention by being selected as the European Best Destination for 2023 through a public vote.

Beautiful, friendly, green, open-minded, perfect for a family city break, a cultural city break, a shopping experience, a romantic stay, Warsaw, your European Best Destinations 2023 has something to offer to everyone,” the statement of European Best Destinations reads.

The authority also noted that for those embarking on a journey to Warsaw, a highly recommended experience is taking a leisurely stroll down Krakowskie Przedmieście, which stands as the most prestigious street in the city. At the same time, it has consistently earned recognition as Europe’s top city break destination by the British consumer association.

Poland is also known as one of the most economical transport countries in Europe since in August 2023, a report published by the environmental organization Greenpeace revealed that train tickets in Poland are the most economical. The report also shows that the cost of train tickets is only half as expensive as air travel within the country.

Furthermore, Statistics from Poland revealed that during the period between January and March, a total of 7.02 million tourists stayed in accommodations in the country. Among these, 1.35 million were international visitors. Both of these figures exceeded the numbers recorded during the same period in 2019, which were 6.7 million overall tourists and 1.29 million foreign visitors.

Moving ahead to May, which is the most recent month for which data is available, official figures from the Central Statistical Office (GUS) show that 602,000 foreign tourists came to Poland, including those who did not have overnight stays. This figure represents an increase of 31 per cent in comparison to the same month of last year. Based on European Union data, in 2019, foreign tourists collectively spent a total of 18.7 million nights in the country’s tourist accommodations.
