Children are eagerly waiting for the winter break from school. People usually take family trips to the mountains, do winter sports or go to water parks.
When planning their winter travels, all parents wonder what their children would like to do during that time. A dissatisfied child or, even worse, a frustrated teenager, who refuses to cooperate on a trip is many parent’s worst nightmare. How to choose the ideal place and activity for our children from what is available?
To avoid disappointment during the winter holidays, it’s a good idea to:
– ask your children what they would like to do during the winter holidays and take their opinion seriously
– present 2 or 3 alternative ideas, while also providing your own suggestions
– let your children participate in the decision-making process
In 2023, as in previous years, the winter holidays are on different dates depending on the region of Poland. Take a look at the calendar of winter holidays:

The first offers for the winter holidays start appearing as early as in November. This is actually a good time, because organising a trip with children requires a lot of thinking and precise planning. The particularly sought-after family packages involve:
The mountains have always been the most popular destination, not only in Poland, but also in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. People usually go there to do winter sports: downhill skiing, sled riding or snowboarding. Tourists also like staying in Podhale-style highlander cottages with interesting architecture and eating traditional highlander cuisine.
The second most popular place for leisure during the winter holidays is water parks. In Mazovia we have SUNTAGO PARK OF POLAND and MSZCZONÓW THERMAL BATHS, as well as the thermal baths in Uniejów. Spending a whole day in the tropical climate of SUNTAGO is a really attractive prospect, not least because it provides an experience so different from the weather outside. The SUNTAGO water park also provides a lot of other attractions, such as: slides, pools, saunas and restaurants serving cuisines from various parts of the world. You can read our blog entry if you need more information.
Thermal baths with hot healing waters are a good choice as well. They may not be as attractive as water parks, but they are much less crowded and costly, making them more easily available to big families. Located 50 km from Warsaw, the MSZCZONÓW THERMAL BATHS are famous for their healing waters. Bathing in hot water in snowy weather is a truly great experience. In winter, the MSZCZONÓW THERMAL BATHS provide one outdoor pool, saunas and a salt cave for visitors. The thermal baths in Uniejów, 2 hours from Warsaw, have even more to offer.
Since the pandemic we have become even more fond of family vacations, but their destinations are different now. We like to pick smaller, less crowded locations not far from home. Local tourism is on the rise thanks to the emerging slow travel trend. Travelling to interesting but lesser-known regional attractions has become an interesting topic to share with your friends. Slow travel often brings educational benefits, particularly valuable when you are travelling with children. It also allows you to focus more on being here and now and spend some quality spare time with your family.
This form of tourism promotes staying in places close to the various attractions that we want to visit. The hotel becomes a base to spend the night in, where comfortable beds and good cuisine are highly valued. However, all of our energy goes into exploring the local attractions. With the preferences of our guests in mind, we have prepared the WINTER HOLIDAYS NEAR WARSAW stay package. The WINTER HOLIDAYS NEAR WARSAW stay package is a compact package consisting of a full board stay and additional amenities for families with children. You can find out more on our website, in the stay packages tab.
Hotel Panorama is a perfect base for local trips due to its location – just 50 km from Warsaw, close to the S8 expressway. Panorama is close to the region's water attractions:
