We've looked at the most up-to-date weather data for Poland, covering the last 12 years up to 2021, plus we've asked our team of travel bloggers for their first-hand experiences in order to answer the most frequently asked questions about Poland weather in August.

How warm is it in Poland during August?

August is typically the warmest month in Poland. The temperature reaches around 25℃ during the daytime, falling away to 16℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

Does it rain in Poland during August?

On average, there will be 14 rainy days during the month, amounting to 37.4mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

The truth about the salt mines near Krakow, Poland

Wieliczka holds an underground secret: pure beauty. Here's what it's like to go deep beneath the earth, complete with tips for visiting the salt mines near Krakow. “Once we start, I will not be able to talk to you. And you will not be able to turn back.” The man stands cloaked in a long charcoal jacket, blowing on his hands to keep warm. For a giant-sized man, he uses a soft voice. "Are you ready?" he asks again. I figure I'm as ready as I'll ever be to climb down 100 metres beneath the...

27 reasons to visit Warsaw for your next city break

I booked flights on a whim then immediately wondered why I hadn’t spent the cash on a trip to say, the former capital Krakow, which everyone knows is a fun destination. But Warsaw?

The best bars in Warsaw, Poland: A drinker’s guide

I was recently in Warsaw for a long weekend with my fiancé and I won’t lie, we spent most of our time in the city’s many watering holes.

Based on my findings during my very serious research (I’m now on a detox until 2026), I thought I’d put together a little guide to where to drink in Warsaw, in case any fellow boozy...

Three days in Warsaw: A complete itinerary

I recently spent three days in Warsaw and I’ve come back filled with an enthusiasm for the destination that I wasn’t expecting. I hadn’t heard too much online hype about Poland’s capital before my trip, but cheap flights lured me to book a city break in Warsaw and I’m so glad I took a chance on the place, instead of heading to more widely raved about Krakow. With over 70 museums, a picture-perfect Old Town and a plethora of cheap, unique bars (three nights in Warsaw was barely enough...
