Typical Polish cuisine - Poland holiday accommodation

Generally the cuisine which you are likely to come across whilst staying in one of our Poland holiday homes or apartments to rent in Poland will be fairly rich and heavy on meat, particularly chicken and pork, although you will find that the cuisine and typical dishes vary from region to region. Throughout the history of Poland, agriculture has played an important role and until recent decades many people relied on it as their main source of income and to feed themselves. As a result, you will find many typical Polish dishes involve the use of lots of root vegetables and other produce which can be easily grown in the local area.

Among our favourite dishes which we would recommend trying would have to be delicious Polish national dish of 'bigos', which we would probably call a 'hunters' stew', pierogi; which are either sweet or savoury filled dumplings and the famous Polish offering of Borscht - a sour soup which is popular across the region.
