Start the day with a sumptuous buffet breakfast in our Downtown restaurant, or watch Warsaw come to life as you swim laps in the pool located on the 43rd floor. We suggest you spend the morning at 17th century Wilanów Palace, 25 minutes away by taxi, where you can admire the paintings gallery and opulent baroque interiors, and explore a magnificent Italian garden. Back in the city centre, treat yourself and book lunch at the Belvedere Restaurant, housed within a beautiful glass Old Orangery in the Royal Lazienki Park.
After lunch, head towards the historical city centre along the Nowy Świat Street, where you'll find an authentic mix of historical sites, restaurants and boutique fashion stores selling both renowned brands and the creations of young Polish designers. If you want a break from shopping, stop to sample cafe Blikle’s delicious pastries or the unmissable drinking chocolate at Wedel. Afterwards, you can wander along the Royal Route to admire iconic buildings and monuments such as the Warsaw University Campus, Copernicus monument, Presidential Palace and the Royal Castle which will reveal to you as a part of the Old Town – Warsaw’s UNESCO World Heritage – one of the “must see” places for Visitors.
As the sun sets, why not to take a walk along the side of the Vistula river and enjoy little bars spread along the bank or visit Hala Koszyki to feel Warsaw’s vibe at this lively food court filled with many different restaurants. Ask the concierge to book tickets for an opera or a ballet at the restored, 19th century Grand Theatre. Alternatively, return to the hotel to enjoy Karol Okrasa's refined cooking in our Platter restaurant, followed by cocktails and music at the + One Bar.
