Images Of Warsaw

Warsaw, the capital of Poland and the country's largest city, is divided into a number of different districts including Sródmiescie, Wola, Praga and more. Many of the city's historical gems were destroyed during WWII, but lots have since been restored. You can see some of the best examples of these in Stare Miasto, the city's Old Town. Not just a city of museums and churches, Warsaw also boasts a vibrant nightlife with a great selection of restaurants, bars and clubs.

    Underestimated city!

    You could compare the image of Warsaw to that of Madrid: Everyone talks about the other city whilst the city itself is quite cool. It's just like that in Poland: Warsaw is a fine place to go. It's certainly not as amusing as Krakow but it certainly is much fun!

    Insider Tip:The milk bars, the vodka containers in the main street

    Cheap city

    Warsaw is a really cheap city. Even cheaper than Germany. The taxi costs around 2.4 zlots per kilometer ( 1 euro = 4 zlots ) and buying food and clothes is also extremely cheap, compared to other countries in the Euro Zone. You rarely see immigrants, or homeless people, so in general it is safe to walk even at night in the streets.

    Warsaw - a strange mix of old and new

    I only had one day to visit the city but it gave off a much different vibe than Krakow. The city has a feel of old (from when the Soviets were in control) mixed with the new of the 21st century and a new government. Personally I like older cities so I did not like Warsaw as much as Krakow however it is worth seeing and eating the pierogis!!! There is a restaurant all over town called Zapiecek. So delicious! I would go back just to eat there!

    Insider Tip:There is a free walking tour that starts from the pillar in old town, worth going on because you get a feel of what the city was before it was demolished during World War 2.

    Warsaw is worth visiting

    I came right at Christmas' time so the atmosphere was very amazing, especially at Christmas' Eve when everybody gathered to the Old Town. Beside, there are museums to visit and learn more about Poland's history, especially during WWII.

    I loved Warsaw!

    Warsaw is an interesting city, with a good vibe. It is fairly inexpensive and there are plenty of places to eat and drink. The Free Walking Tour by Orange Umbrella is excellent and a must do!

    Insider Tip:The tall chocolate swirly ice creams, which are sold everywhere, are delicious!
