LGBT Travellers

Homosexuality is legal in Poland. However, the ruling Law & Justice (PiS) party is very anti-LGBTQ+ in its policies, reflecting the generally conservative, highly religious nature of many Poles. This said, in the major cities such as Warsaw, Kraków and Gdańsk, you'll encounter a much more liberal attitude.

All up this means the Polish LGBTQ+ scene is fairly discreet. Warsaw and Kraków are the best places to find bars, clubs and gay-friendly accommodation, and Sopot is noted as gay-friendly compared to the rest of Poland. The best sources of information are the Warsaw and Kraków city guides on, and (in Polish only).
