However, there are still a lot of vacancies, for example in the center of Zakopane – he said.

Buried. The May weekend attracted crowds of tourists

The official admitted that the weather has a huge influence on Poles' travel decisions. – We receive a lot of calls asking about the weather.

It remains a mystery how much of a price cut he offered.
