Poland Tourism on the Increase

Visitor Arrivals Increase After Three Years
The worldwide hotel brand Hilton has announced that it will be opening its second hotel in Poland. The opening coincides with the news that tourism arrivals are set to increase in the country after several years of decline. The new hotel will be situated in the coastal town of Gdansk, close to the traditional old town area overlooking the Motlawa River. Designed by a renowned Polish architect, the Hilton Gdansk will offer the standards that guests expect from a Hilton hotel with added authentic Polish design. The design will feature many materials native to Poland including traditional Polish bricks to ensure that the hotel blends in well with the surroundings.
Guests will have a wide range of facilities to enjoy including a rooftop ‘urban beach’ which is the highest rooftop bar in the area. There are also several high quality bars, restaurants and a state of the art fitness centre for guests to use during their stay.
Over the past few years Poland has experience a substantial decline in tourism due to the economic downturn and a considerable price hike for tourist visas. Experts are predicting that with a steady rise of EU visitors, the country will see its number rise from 11.9 million visitors to 13.3 million by 2013.
The Hilton is not the first big name brand to seize the potential of Poland’s growing tourism popularity. The Clarion hotel opened in 2010 and will be joined by five other hotels from the same chain. With many large scale events taking place in Poland over the next year, it is the ideal time to visit the country.
