Summer - what to do in Warsaw?

At last we have a real summer:) Temperatures 30-35 degrees! We must enjoy it and don't think about forthcoming long autumn and winter;) Of course you can't stay at home. There are so many great things to do in the capital, most of them for free.

1) The river - rzeka

When we want to be close to the water Wisła it's perfect although swimming is forbidden. You can suntan on the one of the beaches. The one near Łazienkowski bridge has just been opened - entrance is near ul. Kryniczna. Free deckchairs, grills and toys for children.

Water tram - goes from the Old City to Łazienkowski bridge

Ferry to Serock - every Saturday and Sunday, 9 hours of relax on the water. I've bought a ticket and can't wait:)

Small ferries for walkers and bikers

2) Open swimming pools - otwarte baseny

Moczydło - ul. Górczewska

ul. Wał Miedzeszyński 345

Open only a little bit but so nice inside - Wodny Park Warszawianka ul. Puławska.

3) Sighseeing - zwiedzanie

In Warsaw you can find more and more new murals. Just wander and look for them. Some you can check here. In July the city hosts Street Art Doping festival.

4) Free yoga on the weekends - joga za darmo w weekendy

At 10:15 on Saturdays in Skaryszewski Park and on Sundays in Pole Mokotowskie Park. More info here.

5) Ice cream - lody

I recommend Grycan - a Polish company which makes perfect cold desserts.

Malinova - ul. Niepodległości 130

A. Blikle - well-known Polish pastry family.

6) Movies - filmy

15th Film Summer Festival in Warsaw. Here you will find the programme. Cheap tickets.

7) Music - muzyka

Jazz in the Old Town Festival - every Saturday at 7 p.m. free concerts

Don't forget about Chopin, it's his year! All summer you can listen to the concerts.
Festval "Music Gardens" in the Royal Castle - till the end of July

More info about Chopin Year Celebrations here.

8) Theatre - teatr

Free performances of Teatr Polonia on pl. Konstytucji. Mon-Fri at 5 p.m. From the 12th of July also flamenco show! More info here.

and many more... How to stay abreast? My advice - every Friday buy "Gazeta Wyborcza" with "Co jest grane?".

  1. In Warsaw one of my favourite things to do is exploring the culinary side of the city. Polish pubs and restaurants are great! One of my favourite places there is a bar called Bubbles. It is cozy and friendly, and I have never seen such a great choice of champagnes and wines. And the food they serve is excellent, simple but delicious. I always go back while visiting Warsaw.
