Warsaw city break

Warsaw could be your perfect budget city break destination! Let us guide you through the most important ones!

Stare Miasto

"Stare Miasto" is the Polish translation of "Old Town", and the old town of Warsaw is definitely somehing you want to visit. At Castle Square you'll find King Sigismund's Column and the Royal Castle. For stunning views over this charming part of the city you can climb up to the top of the Bell Tower at the St. Anna's Church. It will take you 150 stone steps to reach it, but the view is totally worth it!

Park Lazienki

Warsaw is a bustling city, but the capital of Poland is also home to many parks in which you can easily escape from the crowds. The biggest one, over 76 hectares, is Lazienki Park in the south of the city. You can relax in its huge gardens, discover the lake by a small rowing boat or soak up some culture in the Royal Gallery of Sculptures or the Royal Theatre. But the one thing you simply can't miss in this park, is the Palace on the Isle. This Neoclassical Palace was built on an artificial island that divides the lake into two parts, and was once the summer residence of King Stanislaw II Augustus. Nowadays you can still cherish his royal art collection, including some of the most distinguished European painters.

Palace of Culture and Science

The Palace of Culture and Science is without a doubt the most eye catching building of Warsaw. With its 231 meters, you can spot it from all around town. But it's not only a nice building to look at, inside you can take the escalator to the Thirtieth Floor: an observation deck with spectacular views over the city. During weekdays you can only enjoy the views by day, but if you're in Warsaw on a Friday or Saturday, definitely grab your chance to visit the viewing terrace at night.

The banks of the Vistula

Most tourist hot spots can be found at the left side of the Vistula, but it's worth to cross the river as well. On the other side you can relax on the Beach at the Vistula, enter the St. Florian's Cathedral or pay a visit to the Neon Museum. But the most impressing tourist attraction in this part of the city, is without a doubt the National Stadium. It was built for EURO 2012 and is one of Warsaw's landmarks ever since. Soccer fans can take part in a daily guided tour in English, but even if you don't like the game, you will be impressed by the architectural beauty of the Stadion Narodowy.
