Besides Poland, other destinations to make it onto the list were Abu Dhabi, Australia, Canada, China, France, Hawaii, Iceland, Iran, Italy, Peru, and Sri Lanka.
ABTA's 'Travel Trends Report 2016' enthuses that the 12 destinations are expected “to capture the public’s imagination” this year.
The report indicates that just under a quarter (23 percent) of the British population are expecting to spend more on their holidays than in 2015.
Popular destinations for British tourists in Poland include the former royal capital of Kraków and the highland resort Zakopane, both in the south of the country.
With Wrocław in south western Poland serving as a Capital of European Culture this year, the Silesian city is likely to see a boost in tourist traffic.
Meanwhile, travel magazines such as the UK version of Conde Nast Traveller have praised the charms of lesser known Polish cities such as Toruń in recent times. (nh)
