It is my pleasure to invite you to my hometown – Warsaw. A city which despite of its complicated history stayed modern and unique.
Old Town(pol: Starówka)
One of my favorite places in the city is the Old Town, which has been destroyed, yet rebuild to give you the experience of the past. You can see there some traditional houses, the Royal Castle and plenty great restaurants. As well as the symbol of Warsaw – the mermaid. You can have a nice walk as well as enjoy traditional Polish food in one of the plenty restaurants that there are.
Each Friday there is a beautiful show of illuminated fountains just nearby the castle! It starts at 21:30 so if you will arrive one day ahead of the wedding I would recommend you to visit it!
My favorite restaurants in the Old Town:
The heart of Warsaw is changing rapidly, but there is one thing that stays there no matter what The Palace of Culture and science, which has been build many years ago. Throughout the years it has became another symbol of the city.There are plenty of exhibitions and events taking place there. You can as well visit the panorama terrace at the 30th floor and enjoy the view over the city.
It is also a great place to make shopping and the selection of restaurants its outstanding.
Historical monuments and museums
History of Warsaw hasn’t been always easy. You can find plenty interesting places where you can learn more about it history. Few of them definitely worth a visit if you are keen on the history are:
Lazienki Krolewskie and parks
If you enjoy nature I would highly recommend visiting the amazing city park. Despite of the beautiful landscape there are multiple art exhibition and classical music concerts there.
Another place close to my heart is the Palace in Wilanow district. I have spent 3 years studying at nearby high school and I do know this place quite good. If you are interested in history, you can visit the indoor museum or just have a walk in the beautiful garden area of the palace.
Other things to do
Warsaw is a city where there is always something going on. During recent years the city is attracting plenty international artists ranging from art, to music and architecture.
If shopping is the way you like to spend your free time (and money) there are multiple shopping areas/malls at your disposal:
