The new English travel hot spot is the little town of Szczecin in Poland. The secret was well kept until recently amongst Germans and Danes who both took turns in the past as rulers of the city. Szczecin is not attempting to compete with Prague or Barcelona for beauty and sightseeing, rather it offers cheap dental, beauty and plastic surgery treatment. On that level it competes with any other European destination. The idea is to combine a relaxing city break with some amazing beauty treatments.
Dental clinics like Dentus are immaculate, equiped with the latest technology and most pleasingly staffed by young Polish doctors with excelent english verbal skills. Szczecin also hides little gems like Filozofia Pienka, a boutique beauty salon overlooking the river with soothing ambience and clinical looking treatment rooms. Don't you even dare bring in mind any NHS surgeries, it is an instant sin.
Can this be the spa junky's paradise? It might actually be. Just clear your mind from past experiences and get ready to enter a professional environment of expert beauticians who will charge you 40% of the prices you pay back home.
