    City Breaks: Warsaw

    Warsaw is a unique place: you can love it at first sight, or love it after a while. Some of its quarters are just beautiful, and some are overtaken by communist architecture. At the same time, the city develops briskly, with new skyscrapers appearing in the Warsaw skyline. Learn what is worth seeing there and pay a visit to this vibrant metropolis.

    Located in the centre of Europe, Warsaw is perfect for a weekend break. A short distance flight will bring you into a country you may feel you know, but do not be spoilt by superstitions; come and experience it yourself. After all, spending a lazy Sunday lying on the beach by the Vistula River in the city centre - with a charming view of the Old Town district - is not such a bad idea.

    Although nearly 80% of Warsaw was destroyed during the war, it hasn't lost all its beauty. The former glamour can still be found in Aleje Ujazdowskie, where the foreign embassies and governmental buildings are located. Taking a walk through Warsaw centre is the best way to see its highlights. Our tip: start from Belvedere Palace, the residence of the Polish President. From there on, you can visit Łazienki Park, the largest park in Warsaw, where the Chopin Statue and the Palace on the Water can be found. The 'Sunday Piano Concerts in Łazienki' start in mid May - open air Chopin music concerts performed live by various artists - a great opportunity to hear some of the classical music masterpeaces in a relaxed atmosphere. The next stop is Ujazdow Castle - located next to Łazienki - which is now a Centre of Contemporary Art. A leisurely walk through Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście, also known as the 'Royal Route', will allow you to see many historic buildings, such as the Warsaw University Campus, or the Presidential Palace. This route will also lead you to the Old Town - the oldest historical district of the city, which is home to many restaurants, cafes and various shops. After the stroll, you can take a break on the beach, on the other site of the Vistula River.

    A History Fan? The Warsaw Rising Museum

    If you are interested in modern history, paying a visit to The Warsaw Rising Museum is a must. It is devoted to the people who fought in 1945 in Warsaw against the Nazi army. A full size Liberator plane is inside the museum walls, and you can even go through the replica of an underground tunnel - just like the messengers, people who were delivering orders during the Warsaw uprising. The Museum is interactive and has audio guides in English. It will take you on an unforgettable journey through a chapter of history that is still incredibly recent.

    Last but not least: Horse racing

    The horse racing season starts on the 27th of April and, from then on, you can see Arabian and Thoroughbred horses competing every weekend in Służewiec, Warsaw horse racetrack. You can come with your family, make your bets, feel the excitement, and cheer your horse on as it approaches the finishing line in full gallop. Feel inspired and try out our tips during your visit to Warsaw!
