    The best things about Poland

    Long history of cultural and ethnic diversity

    Throughout its history Poland has been home to a diverse range of minorities. Poles, Jews, Tatars, Russians, Germans, Lithuanians, Armenians, the Romani people and others lived there as neighbours for centuries. World War II and the communist period changed Poland's ethnic landscape, but since 1989 a revival of Poland's cultural and ethnic diversity has been observed. Synagogues and Jewish cemeteries are being restored across the country, while numerous institutions and museums that celebrate Polish ethnic heritage open every year (most notably Warsaw's Museum of the History of the Polish Jews that opened its doors to visitors in 2013).

    In the picture: Old Jewish Cemetery of Cracow, established in the first half of the 16th century.
