Przemyśl is a small city in the extreme southeast of Poland, on the border with Ukraine. It’s an important garrison town, and the old fortifications around the city are well worth a visit.
The city centre is quite compact and easy to explore on foot, with a mix of grandiose 19th-century buildings and pretty, cobbled streets. There are a few museums and galleries, as well as a lively cafe and bar scene. The main attraction, though, is the city’s location right on the border with Ukraine. There’s a lot of interesting history here, and it’s a great place to experience a little bit of both Polish and Ukrainian culture.
