Polish cuisine is hearty and diverse.  Our traditional dishes are: schabowy (a flavored pork chop), bigos (cabbage cooked with meat and vegetables), gołąbki (pork and rice wrapped up in cabbage leaves and served with tomato sauce) or pierogi (dumplings with different fillings).

For breakfast we usually have simple open-faced sandwiches, yoghurt, cereal with milk or eggs. Dinner, served in the late afternoon, is the main meal. Then we have a light supper and desert in the evening. Dishes that must be tried include: beetroot soup, żurek, mushroom soup and naleśniki.

Poland’s climate is influenced by a continental climate from the east and a maritime climate from the west. As a result, the weather changes frequently with significant differences from day to day and from year to year. Winter is usually cold and snowy (the average for January is -25°C), summer is warm with showers and thunderstorms (the average for July is 17°C), spring and early fall are very pleasant with moderate temperatures and lovely colors. Summer can also be hot and dry with temperatures reaching over 30  Celsius.  In the winter the temperature usually falls below zero (occasionally reaching -20° or more). The lowest temperatures are in the mountains and the highest in western and central Poland.
