20 Fancy Things to Do in Warsaw

Warsaw is a bustling city with an abundance of fancy things to do. Mark my words: you’ll have no time to get bored! Here are 20 of my favorite quirky and fun things to do in Warsaw.

1. Stroll Around the Old Town

You can easily find Warsaw’s heart right in the Old Town area, where the Royal Castle, churches and buildings dating back to the Renaissance period are waiting for you. Rebuilt after the Second World War, the Old Town has become a monument, a symbol of pride and the determination that the inhabitants have shown in trying to revive everything that was destroyed after the war. This charming place is full of museums, shops, restaurants, and cafes.

2. Explore the Royal Route

Warsaw’s royal route takes you along some of the most important monuments and churches in the city. It was the route walked by the kings whenever they visited the capital. Therefore, it’s sprinkled with some of the most magnificent architectural structures.

If you come here before sunset, you’ll see all the buildings bathed in a golden light, which makes the atmosphere extremely romantic.

3. Go Green

Warsaw is one of the greenest cities in Europe and it has been like this for centuries. Parks and gardens are just a few steps away from some major touristic sights. Take a walk, have a picnic, or get lazy and lay on the grass under the trees.

My favorite park is the Lazienki Park – probably the most beautiful one in the Polish capital.

Weirdest American Holiday Traditions

The holiday season is here and businesses across the United States are going all-out to make sure that their decorations are better than the year before. The majority of Americans get so excited about holidays that it’s easy to forget how many traditions are strangely unique to the American culture. Actually, there are a large number of uniquely American holiday traditions that seem strange to those who didn’t grow up here. Let’s explore some of the weirdest American holiday traditions that are out there today.

The World in Liquor

When you go out for a night, how many options for liquor does your home base bar have on offer? Sure, they’ve probably got some standard gins, vodkas, rums, whiskies, and tequilas—but probably not much of anything else. If you’re traveling, one of the best ways to start to get to know the local culture is to indulge in a popular local drink.

The World in Soda

Our taste buds can tell us a lot about ourselves. While giants like Pepsi and Coca-Cola still rule the worldwide soda market, smaller brands that represent local tastes have maintained their loyal followers for years in places like Switzerland and Barbados.
