    There's more to Poland than the Euro's

    With 3 weeks left of the Euro 2012 football games, the UK's main focus is on Poland and on our famous footballers. But what if you're not a football fan and are planning a visit to Poland? Surely there is more to see than a 90 minute game?

    Hire a car in Poland and enjoy a little beach hopping. The Polish Baltic coastline has some fantastic spots where the sands are a dreamy white colour and resorts have a lively atmosphere.

    Jastarnia, a small town close to the city of Gdynia, is Poland's number one beach resort. The beaches here can get a little crowded, so get down there early with your beach towel!Poland is not a country that lacks historic buildings; you will find them in most towns and cities.

    If you drive an hour south of Gdansk, you can visit the beautiful Malbork Castle. Completed in 1406, the castle is located along the banks of the River Nogat. The castle has suffered damages through the ages, especially in World War II; however it has been fully restored and is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Lovers of the outdoors will not be disappointed in Poland; there are a number of stunning National Parks to visit. Located in the south-west of Poland is the Table Mountains National Park. The park is famous for its strangely shaped rocks - one shaped like a monkey ( see image) - and its wildlife, which you will see just wandering around.

    You can take your hire car through the park, but be sure to stick to the main road areas and drive at a slow and steady pace.One attraction that is an absolute must is the Bochina Salt Mine. It is one of the oldest salt mines in Europe and it's a great place to jump on a guided tour.

    Not only can you wander the historic corridors and learn all about its interesting past, the mine also has an underground disco and a restaurants, plus accommodation where you can book into for the night!
