About Warsaw

Including tips for the best time to visit Warsaw

Warsaw's history is told though its architecture, from its restored Gothic structures to steel high-rises and everything in between. The Royal Castle served as the monarchy's residence for about 300 years before it was totally destroyed in WW2. Then, there's the Palace of Culture and Science, which dates back to the Soviet era, remains Poland's tallest structure, and now houses theaters, bars, museums, and an observation deck on the 30th floor.

The city's complex story unfolds even further in all of its great museums. The Warsaw Rising Museum covers the history of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 through interactive displays, photographs, and film archives.

Though there's history down every street, Warsaw is as modern as any other European capital, full of gorgeous green spaces like Lazienki Park, as well as a variety of Polish and fushion restaurants, cozy bars, and galleries in the beautifully restored old town. Take a guided tour of Old Praga to discover the city's besk kept secrets. Then, when night falls, head over to Mazowiecka Street to experience the best of Warsaw’s vibrant nightlife.

4th time to Warsaw uber taxis very reasonable, so easy to get around. People very friendly most in Warsaw speak English. Food is awesome. Lots to see and do . Old town good for all kinds of restaurants, little bit more expensive than other parts of town

The food in any cafe or restaurant was really good.

The food in any cafe or restaurant was really good. Did not use public transport, so do not have an experience. We rented the hotel close to center, in a walking distance. Polish people speak only polish! That is not easy.. King's castle a great place to visit though for I have no idea why - the first time we were there were open many rooms for visit, the next time only half of them. A huge disappointment.

Warsaw is a perfect place for those who want to feel the big city - although the city is not so big as Los Angeles or New York City, it still is a very vibrant place with many things to do and many sights to see! If you're going with your own car to Warsaw - please use Waze, as the lanes and the traffic can be intense at some times. If you're going out to some restaurants, you can really try seeing which places are recommended by TripAdvisor or maybe seeing some places in Google reviews. Warsaw has many parks and other places to see, so any place you choose - you will find something that you like!

Beautiful city.

Beautiful city. Lots to see and do. Great for kids. But very big city and travelling on foot as we did takes up a long part of the day as i was with kids and it was warm. Looking into public transport would seem like a wise thing to have done in hindsight.

I enjoyed the many food options, both Polish and American. I loved the open arms culture and the car scene. It felt comfortable, I recommend Warsaw as a first time European location as it offers a good portion of English speakers and food delivery and Uber rides.

The Old City is worth seeing.

August 4, 2021

The Old City is worth seeing.Take a short tour with Warsaw City Tours lasting 3 hours, Great way to see the major sites by car and it saves the feet. You also have a short walk through a beautiful park, and you can feed the squirrels and sparrows. The guide is very knowledgeable.
