Warsaw’s Fun Guide

1 Comment

Near the end of June, after dissertations and diplomas were completed, Sarah and I celebrated by using the plane tickets she bought me for my birthday and spent three days soaking up the sunshine, culture, and beer of our namesake! #warsawsinwarsaw

Here’s our Warsaw’s Fun Guide to Warsaw!

Warsaw’s Fun Guide

 1. Live like a local. Travelling on the cheap, we booked ourselves in to an Airbnb apartment and lived there. Even only for two nights! The studio apartment was amazingly compact and perfect for the two of us.

2. Sample the Cuisine. The pair of us have always been big foodies, so trying the local delicacy was a must! If only to keep holiday hanger at bay. Poland’s version of traditional fast food comes from Milk Bars, which were certainly an experience! Instant service and instant uncertainty. Delicious breakfasts were found at the café To Lubie in the Old Town; hot continental croissants with fluffy cream cheese and jam. Amazing. We returned on our second morning to try the local version too!

3. By foot… Walk everywhere! Seriously comfortable shoes are a must, a fact I learnt the hard way. We did manage to wander off our intended path every now and then, but always found our way back. Top sights to see include the Multimedia Fountain Park, which comes to life on Friday and Saturday nights, and Stalin’s Palace of Culture and Science!

4. By train… Avid readers of Warsaw’s World will understand how much Sarah loves a good Underground system. Warsaw’s Metro is clean, quiet, and every couple of minutes; a delight in itself, especially compared to the local rail network in Liverpool!

 

5. Play the Tourist. We picked up a phase book and gave the lingo our best shot!  Everyone we spoke to pronounced words differently, so it definitely wasn’t the easiest to get your head, and tongue, around.  But gallons of fun regardless!
Play Spot the Mermaid and keep your eyes peeled for statues of the Mermaid of Warsaw, the city’s symbol, which also decorates their Coat of Arms. We managed to find four across the city! 

What fun things do you love getting up to in new places? I’d love to know any recommendations!
