The most typical Polish dish and loved by all people in Poland must be by far: Pierogi. This Italian ravioli lookalike of dough, filled with meat, mushroom, cabbage or anything you like mixture tastes deliciously and is served in every Polish styled restaurant. We spent a few hours on a saturday morning being drilled by chef Michał Piosik in the ways of the Polish pierogi.
Not every building in Warsaw has been razed to the ground during WWII. The narrow Próżna street is the only street of the Jewish ghetto whose both sides survived the war. In one of the historic buildings, currently being renovated, you will find a tiny and cozy café named, surprisingly, Café Próżna.
Poland was once home of the largest Jewish community of the world, but the holocaust had a devastating impact on the lives of many Jews. Polin aims to honor those who died, by remembering how they lived and showing the rich civilization they created in the past thousand years. A highly recommended visit.
Christmas in Warsaw! Read all about the Polish Christmas traditions, a typical Christmas dinner and the illumination of the old town.
Just behind the busy Nowy Świat, in a quiet, little dead-end street called Gałczyńskiego, you can find Wrzenie Świata. This nice and cozy café offers great drinks and small bites, but is actually a bookstore. Wherever you decide to take a seat, you will always end up next to a bookshelf. Unless it is summer of course, then the best place is outside on the terrace.
Every trip to Warsaw should start with a visit to the Warsaw Rising Museum. Many people have heard or read in their guidebooks that Warsaw was completely destroyed during the second world war. A visit to this museum brings this notion to life.
