What do I need to know about staying in Warsaw?

Outside of your schedule of corporate commitments, your Warsaw serviced apartment provides a great base from which to explore this richly historic city. We have compiled some key information to ensure you are well-equipped to make the most of your trip.

History

No strangers to a dark and tumultuous history, the streets of Warsaw are lined with museums and monuments that tell harrowing tales of the war stricken early 1900s. Warsaw is sometimes known as the Phoenix City, due to an estimated 85% of the city being destroyed during World War II and having to be rebuilt from ruins. The traditional architecture you see in the city today was meticulously built during the latter half of the 1900s in the ‘Bricks for Warsaw’ campaign that restored much of the city back to its original form. Walk the Royal Route that begins at Castle Square and ends at Wilanów Palace, to see some of the authentic churches and burgher houses that showcase the Polish capital’s miraculous recovery and visit Warsaw Rising Museum to hear personal accounts from the city’s darkest days.

Cuisine

Due to its rich history, Warsaw has curated a rather eclectic cuisine through the years and shares much of its taste with its neighbouring countries. Classic Polish cuisine features a lot of meat and vegetables: think winter warmers and comfort food. Pierogi is one of the most famous Polish dishes and consists of crescent shaped dumplings filled with either savoury or sweet fillings.

Nature

Aside from the impressive architecture Warsaw boasts, the city also offers plenty of green spaces in which to unwind and reflect. Łazienki Park is an exquisite example: with perfectly manicured gardens, a lake and even peacocks strutting around the grounds, as well as a palace, a few follies and an amphitheatre. Take a guided tour with colleagues, or simply enjoy a long lunch taking in the stunning natural beauty. 

Transport

Warsaw is one of the most congested cities in Europe, with Poles spending around 106 hours a year stuck in traffic; bear this in mind before hailing a taxi in rush hour. Fear not, as an extensive bus, tram and metro system makes travelling this city a breeze. Tickets can be purchased that are valid for journeys ranging from a one way ride, to a three-day pass costing anywhere between 4 and 60zł, depending on which zones you are travelling within. With buses running between 5:00 and 23:00, as well as a twice hourly night bus, you can always rely on a Warsaw bus to get you to early meetings and home from any corporate events.

Culture

The riverside Praga district is packed full of culture and is the perfect spot for some urban exploration. The Soho Factory hosts many cultural events like art exhibitions and music concerts. Discover some gems at Warsaw’s oldest market, Bazar Różyckiego and catch a movie at Kino Praha, a cinema that in summer offers discounted cinema tickets to those who arrive on bike. For something a bit different, let off some steam at Hangar 646, a trampoline park housed in a former airport hangar.
