Antiques

For antique lovers, and particularly for those who collect objects from the Second World War, Poland is the perfect place to find unique treasures. In many markets and antique shops, you can find helmets, medals, decorations and much more.

At the market in Sukiennice, there is an endless variety of chess pieces and chess boards of all shapes, sizes, and colors.

But handicrafts are not the only traditional Polish products you buy. We should also include food and drink.

 

Liquors and Vodkas

Krupnikas is the best-known Polish liquor at an international level. Honey, aromatic herbs and various spices are used to prepare this drink. But apart from this well-known drink, Poland has a great variety of honey-based drinks of different types.

Vodka is so ingrained in the Polish culture that it competes with Russian vodka in quality and consumption. There are many varieties of vodka, each with a different flavor, and you can find honey, fruits, flowers, and spices. If you want to take the most famous traditional Polish vodka home, choose Zubrowka.

And for lovers of beer, Okocim and Zywiec are the stars of the country, although there are many other brands throughout the length and breadth of the country.
