Today I want to introduce you to this amazing city called Warsaw. It had been a while since Natalia, one of my best friends from Brillantmont, my boarding school in Switzerland, had invited me to her home in Poland. Finally I decided to go see her and explore the amazing city of Warsaw and I loved it!!!! Here is all you need to know:
Warsaw is actually closer than we might think, from Barcelona I flew in with Vueling and it´s only 2,30 h flight.
WHERE TO STAY:
Bristol Hotel: The most beautiful hotel in Warsaw. It has an interior patio/garden that reminds me so much of Hotel Costes in Paris, so let´s say this is the Polish version! Anything similar to Costes is always the best choice 😉 Book here forsureeeeeee!
WHAT TO DO:
There are many things to do in the city culturally speaking, the Palac kultury is probably the most famous building in the city (might as well take a pic ). You should also visit the Jewish museum.
If something has surprised me in Warsaw, is that there are more Ferraris here than in the streets of Dubai. Why? I asked my friend, and the answer is the Polish people have a passion for luxury cars. I understand since Warsaw is not a very walking friendly city due to weather conditions! Same reason why most of the shops are in shopping malls, the newest: Vitkac mall. Check out the coolest Polish designer Magda Butrym she has top collections and is dressing celebrities around the world.
WHERE TO EAT/DRINK:
Palmier: New IT place in Warsaw to go and be seen. Beautifully decorated with palm trees makes you feel you are in the jungle, great for instagram as well! Ideal for afternoon tea (wine).
Rozbrat20: Great place for brunch! Very healthy and cool. Order the avocado toast with poached egg.
Sushi Zushi: Super good sushi, the best? Sit by the bar and order directly to the sushi chef. Order the sushi roll with cooked salmon, soooooooo good!
Man go: For a quick healthy snack this is the best place to go. Specialized in Hummus, they even have avocado hummus! Amazing or what?!
Paros: The Greek restaurant that immediately teleports you to summer in Mykonos. As the night goes on and the music gets louder you will end up dancing on the tables! Really wasn´t expecting to find a place like that here, so much fun!
U kucharzy w Arsenale: My favourite experience in the whole trip. The most famous and traditional Polish restaurant in Warsaw. Everything here is top. From the moment you walk in you see the open kitchen and all the chefs running around with portable cooking tables preparing food in front of the clients. The top dish here the steak tartar. Please order it. The chef prepares it in front of you while you enjoy the live music. I want to go back just to eat here again!
If you want to visit a bit of Poland, a weekend in is enough to get an idea! So look at your agenda and plan a getaway. The local currency is the Polish Zloty, you will find that the prices are much lower than in the rest of Europe!
See you in Poland!
