The ultimate guide to Warsaw


The best of Warsaw

The 13 best things to do in Warsaw

Poland’s sprawling capital has a chequered history, including brutal Medieval warfare and occupation during World War II—and you can explore all that and more when tackling each one of the best things to do in Warsaw. This is reflected in the city's architecture, from Gothic churches to tall Soviet skyscrapers. Cooler than the more touristy Krakow, Warsaw has undergone a major foodie revival in recent years and has also developed a thriving art scene in the warehouses littered throughout the city. Budget airlines offer direct flights here for as little as £35 return—and, as it's Eastern Europe, you can expect to actually come home with leftover spending money despite living like a king while in town.
