Wczasy pod gruszą


Lit. “holidays under a pear tree”. A stationary holiday in a Polish countryside which you organise on your own – as opposed to a trip to Asia or South America fully arranged by a travel agency.

This poetical expression also has a practical dimension: many Polish companies and governmental institutions cover costs of such vacations either fully or partially. They’ve had even forty or fifty years ago, as the term has quite a long history.

But “wczasy pod gruszą” might as well mean that you leave your big city and drive for an hour r two to visit your parents and spend a week or two in their little village.
