Holidays in Warsaw
The area and getting around
Warsaw is the capital of Poland and a city of nearly 2 million, easily accessible from all around Europe by a variety of low-cost airlines. The main attraction of the city is the Old Town, one of the most beautiful in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is also home to a vibrant urban scene, with Ząbkowska Street being the coolest street of all, where you will find a raft of lively alternative bars and hip cafes.A fantastical juxtaposition of old and new
Many visitors to Warsaw comment on how seamlessly the city has managed to blend the old with the new. Cross the Vistula River to see the Old Town from a distance, and the unique panorama of the city will reveal itself – modern skyscrapers rise above the quaint red roofs of the Old Town.
Travellers and activities
While not widely known as being a top destination for families, modern Warsaw has so much to offer inquisitive children and their parents. The Copernicus Science Centre is a real treat for science lovers; discover the secrets of nature, conduct your very own experiments, and interact with hundreds of exhibits. The centre is also home to a Robotic Theatre, where performing humanoids move, speak to you, and even express their feelings. In the evening, take your children to Multimedia Fountain Park by the Old Town. Once night falls, the fountains turn into a spectacular show of light, sound and water.Warsaw for museum lovers
There are 71 museums in the city, most of which are free at least once a week. Learn all about the country’s turbulent history, acquaint yourself with Polish visual arts, classical music and film. The Warsaw Rising Museum is a locals’ favourite. It commemorates probably the most significant event in the city’s history – the 1944 Warsaw Uprising – with interactive exhibits, videos and recordings from that era, and even a recreation of the sewer tunnels used by the Polish resistance to move around the city without being caught. Museum lovers should also take in the Fryderyk Chopin Museum, which pays homage to Poland’s most famous composer, the POLIN Museum, which celebrates the history of the Jewish community in Poland, and the truly unique Neon Museum, exhibiting 60 neon signs from the Cold War era.
Green, green Warsaw is home to no less than 88 parks, and 14% of the city is covered by woods!
