Polish Camino

I'm currently in Poland and have heard that there is a Camino going through Poland. I've tried researching a little but I'm not finding a lot.

Has anyone walked any Camino route in Poland? I'm flexible with starting points etc but with restrictions on travel to Spain, I'm looking for a route closer to where I am. Poland is such a vast country I find it strange there isn't a more publicised and established route.

Any pointers greatly appreciated.

See this current thread:

Pomeranian/Baltic Way of St. James- Polish sections​

I know someone in Warsaw who is about to walk a week along the Polish Camino, though am not sure where. There will be a small group of four individuals, three of whom walked last year for a week. If you want to know more, send me your email in a PM - not on a public thread, and I will forward it to my contact. If she has anything useful for you, I am sure she will let you know. She is Polish but manages well in English.

Dzień dobry @Walden

Here is a link to a website with all the Drogi Św Jakuba (St James Roads) in Poland:
https://camino.net.pl/droga-w-polsce/

In 2015 I walked a combination of Drogi Św Jakuba from Zgorzelec at the Polish/German border as far as Olsztyn. Another time, in 2017 I crossed back into Poland from Lazdijai in Lithuania to Sejny a few kilometers after the Lithuanian/ Polish border, then on to Krasnapol near Suwałki. After each journey I put together a simple resource containing a list of stages walked, where I found help, and where I slept. They can be downloaded here:

Drogi Św Jakuba : Zgorzelec - Olsztyn (June/July 2015). I followed the camino signs in reverse. From Zgorzelec as far as the sanctuary at Jakubow the camino signs were posted in both directions.

The Baltic republics: Tallinn via Vilnius to Krasnapole . (July-Oct, 2017).
The camino is well signed from the Lithuanian/ Polish border.

Happy planning!

Ps
Hello again. Before walking through the Baltics in 2017 I found a few websites with brochures and information about the region between Suwałki and the Polish/Lithuanian border. There are some interesting historical trails and cycle paths close by the Droga Sw Jakuba:

The last time we were in Krakow we saw the Camino de Santiago regular stone marker with the yellow arrow. Here's a pic and if you do decide to walk from here you're prolly still about 4,184 kms away from St. James the Greater. Ultreia! IMG_0247.jpeg

Hi @Kitsambler! How nice to see you here. Zygorzelec was part of Görlitz until 1945, a city spanning both sides of the Lusatian Neisse river. With international borders shifting after WW2 Zygorzelec became part of Poland whilst Görlitz remained in the DDR. Yes, the Via Regia passes through here! It's an interesting walk.
