Warsaw

  • Heading to Warsaw in early November...spent a bit of time in Poland before (Krakow/Gdansk) but keen to hear recommendations for Warsaw (food, sights, sounds and bike stuff...)

  • I was there maybe 10 years ago - there was a pretty cool poster museum - strong history of poster art.

  • @carson thanks

  • Neon Museum has also been suggested http://www.neonmuzeum.org/pages/about.ht­ml

  • Warsaw uprising museum is highly recommended: https://www.1944.pl/en
    Most of the old town got flattened during the war so not as pretty as Krakow but it's definitely lots to do, enjoy!

  • Thanks for the tip @PoleOnaBike

  • Made it to Warsaw. Great time and would recommend although probably more fun in summer when people are out on the river side enjoying the sun

    Highlights

    POLIN Jewish Museum
    Youmiko Vegan Sushi veganism seems to be well represented in the cities restaurants - despite or possibly because of Polish cuisine's penchant for meat and dairy
    Palace of Culture and Science dominates the city - compelling if not beautiful
    Warszawa Centralna railway station interior caught my eye - reminded me a little of TWA terminal in NYC
    Blahol - good bags at affordable prices

    Ummmmh

    City is dominated by the car and I certainly wouldn't describe it as pedestrian friendly in many parts with quite a lot of cases where you have to walk to the end of a block to cross a major road which seem to criss-cross the city

  • I want add some bars, if you are interested:
    pijalnia - there are some kind of traditional shots, as MONTE its hazelnut vodka with milk, very interesting taste, Polish are very proud of it :D
