Warsaw is a multifaceted city that you can’t just discover along the way. There is so much to see that we realised after our visit that we had not yet visited some items on our list.
For me, vodka has always belonged to Eastern Europe. When we were in Krakow, we came into contact with vodka and its tradition for the first time. When I discovered the Polish Vodka Museum in Warsaw while researching before our trip, it was clear that we absolutely had to go here.
It’s Sunday and the weather is beautiful. We and many other visitors are visiting Łazienki Park in Warsaw. The day simply invites to explore the largest park in the city and enjoy a free piano concert.
A visit to Warsaw definitely includes an exploration of the city’s history. The POLIN deals with the history of Polish Jews and was a real experience for me.
After we had seen “Stalin’s Birthday Cake” in Riga, the Academy of Sciences, we were quite curious about the visually quite similar building in Warsaw, the Palace of Culture and Science. For us, the Warsaw Palace of Culture is one of the most impressive buildings of the city, that we wanted to take a closer look.
Szczecin is located in the northwest of Poland, just 130 kilometers from Berlin. You can get there really quickly by train, so a short visit to the Polish city on the Szczecin Lagoon is just perfect.
