Warsaw: Exploring a Foreign City

alex-jones

The Cloth Market

Krakow is the old capital of Poland (and lost this title to Warsaw eventually, Poland’s current capital). The Cloth Market was the center for trade and business in the medieval ages. Tradesmen and craftsmen would meet here from time to time and carry on business. It is a beautiful long building which stands out in the city’s Old Town. Perpetually crowded with people, it has a very local feel to it. You might find interesting food vendors outside this place and all for less than 10 zloty which is about 4 AUD! Inside the building, you will see walls and ceilings creatively decorated with emblems of the various cities in Poland. This area is full of small shops and ideal for souvenir shopping! Right from ‘I love Krakow’ caps to coasters, postcards to small games and scarfs, this place has a lot to see.

Warsaw: sightseeing, public transport and tips

I’ve never had an aim to visit Poland. I wanted to visit the Czech Republic, Prague in particular. But one day in 2012 I had a reason to visit this country: my boyfriend bought a ticket to the concert of Coldplay which took place in Warsaw. And we decided to go there together and combine both countries: the Czech Republic and Poland in our trip.

Polina Buyanova

Winter in Warsaw

There are so many things to love about Warsaw. It’s got so much history and character – you can see it in the streets, in the mix of architecture, and in the diversity and friendliness of the people. Just walking through the city is enough to win you over, with beautiful buildings, cafés and small businesses scattered through the old and new streets. It is especially beautiful covered in snow, as it was during my visit in January 2016.

How to get there: 

I arrived in Warsaw at Chopin airport and from there took a train to the central station in Warasaw and another to Krakow ( train from Warsaw to Krakow costs on average 15 euros and it’s about 5 hours journey ). Best option is to fly directly to Krakow and from there take the train to the main train station.

How to spend a perfect day in Warsaw like a local

A perfect morning starts definitely in this cosy French pastry named Charlotte. It’s located in Warsaw Polytechnics district which is a favourite area of polish young people, hipsters, and elite. There is nothing better than sitting in front of the beautiful Barocco church, sipping a coffee and enjoying freshly baked goodies!

Poland: Weekend in Pomerania

A lot of people when I say “I’m from Poland”, ask “oh cool, Warsaw or Cracov?”. Well, that can be surprising but we have in Poland few more cities, and my personal opinion- much more beautiful than Warsaw.
