Moving around in Poland - transportation
Due to the fact that the whole western part of the country is bordered by the Baltic Sea and channels and rivers are flowing all over the country, water transportation is available, but only in the warm season. There are no regular trips on the main rivers of Poland. This service is available only to cruise boats. You can also go on a ship, liner, yacht or on a boat to cruise along the seacoast. Recently, cycling has been actively developing in the country. The flat terrain of the country contributes to this. You can rent a bicycle in any city. However, only big cities have a modern large network of bicycle paths. Therefore, many tourists along with the bicycle rental are offered to acquire the map of the city. Bicycles can be left in parking lots near hostels and hotels. You can also take them with you when traveling by train.
Economy roadmap of Poland
Poland’s energy sector is also quite profitable. About 90% of electricity is produced at state-owned thermal power plants. The greater part uses coal as fuel, while the smaller part uses lignite. Wind and hydroelectric power plants generate less than three percent of electricity. The country’s oil reserve is about two million tons. However, all domestic needs of the country are being met solely thanks to importation. Also, most of the natural gas is imported, as gas produced in the country is able to meet only a third of domestic demand. Most of the banks that are located in Poland have foreign owners with a huge deposit base. This brings quite a big profit to the country. The banking system is so far strong, stable and continues to improve.
