Now in its 6th edition this Rough Guide has been fully updated and revised. Its 24-page full-colour section introduces the author''s “things not to miss”, a selective taste of the country''s highlights: outstanding buildings, and historic sites, natural wonders and vibrant festivals. Throughout, there are discerning reviews of all the best places to stay, eat and drink, to suit any budget, from the fast-changing cities of Warsaw and Krakow to the laid-back lakeside resorts of Mazuria. There is extensive coverage of the countryside, from Slowinski National Park''s sand dunes to the alpine Tatra mountains, with practical advice on how to explore it. Finally, the Contexts section provides an authoritative background on the country''s politics, history, literature and folk music.

From Library Journal:

These guides offer detailed coverage of both provincial and urban areas, especially Warsaw and, more importantly, Krak?w. The outdoor recreation for which Poland is deservedly well known gets its due. The Rough Guide has few maps and no photos, while Lonely Planet offers 90 maps and 24 pages of color.
