Filming locations in Poland
Poland is one of the biggest countries in Central Europe and its landscape offers a high range of diversity. The whole southern part of the country is covered by mountains, from higher Tatra with alpine panoramas, to lower Bieszczady whose wooded slopes provide wild sceneries. Across central Poland there is a vast area of plains used mainly for agriculture. On the northeast, there is the Masurian Lake Dictrict – breath-taking region with countless lakes and dense old forests. To the north, there is the Baltic Sea shore which stretches for over 300 km, providing variegated vistas, from wide sandy beaches with beautiful dunes to high cliffs.
Polish architecture is diverse and versatile as well. It can amaze with both its modern and traditional aspects. Given the tumultuous history of Poland, Polish borders were moved many times, making the country include a wide range of styles and international influences. Starting with Medieval castles and Renaissance buildings, numerous countryside villages, through modern and industrial cities and ambiences. The communism left its imprint as well – it is still echoing in various parts of the country.
Poland has a moderate climate with relatively warm summers and cold winters, with beautiful springs and autumns featured by yellowish to reddish colours, which makes it easy to get images depicting all four seasons in full swing.
The weather in Poland
Northern and western Poland enjoy a moderate climate with mild winters and fairly wet summers, while the eastern parts have a continental climate with cold winters and hot dry summers.
The vagaries of the Polish weather are due not so much to the mild climate as to its transitory nature. What does it mean? Above our heads masses of moist air from across the Atlantic collide with dry air from the interior of the continent. The result? A sky covered with clouds 60-70% of the year (most often in November, least often in September).
It rains … especially in the summer. The rainiest month is June, while the least rainy is February. The country’s driest region is Kujawy, while the rainiest is the Tatra Mountains, where a record rainstorm with 30 cm of precipitation occurred in June 1973 in Hala Gasienicowa.
The Silesian Plain is the warmest place on the Polish map. Here, the mild winter lasts only two months, while the summer lasts 100 days. Poland’s coldest place is Wizajny in the Suwalki region. Here, the average temperature in January is minus 4.5° C and winter continues mercilessly for four months. In 1928, the snowfall continued until June!
