Start the day with a sumptuous buffet breakfast in our Downtown restaurant, or watch Warsaw come to life as you swim laps in the 43rd floor pool. 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 Restauracja Belvedere, housed within a beautiful glass Orangery in grand Lazienki Park.
After lunch, head for stately Nowy Świat Street, where you'll find high end shops 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 adjoining Royal Route to admire iconic buildings and monuments such as the Staszic Palace, the Royal Castle and the Adam Mickiewicz Monument.
As the sun sets, why not take a romantic walk through Warsaw's Old Town? You could stop for a candlelit dinner, or 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. For a nightcap with a difference, join bohemian locals in the quirky bars of the Praga district, just across the Vistula River.
Warsaw Uprising Museum
A stunning museum opened in 2004, full of interactive displays, photographs and video footage. Open on the occasion of 60th anniversary of Warsaw Uprising. Make sure you have 3 spare hours to go there - it is worth it!
On the other side of the Wisla River, Praga offers visitors a combination of strange sights and sounds - Street Band Monument at square that connects Florianska and Klopotowskiego Streets.
While on a bus, tram or underground train, remeber to give up your seat to a pregnant woman or an elderly person.
After the Second World War, in 1945, the Old Town was completely demolished. Nevertheless, already by 1953 it was completely reconstructed. Now you can see the history of Warsaw in two museums - Warsaw Historical Museum and Warsaw Uprisung Museum -places to be seen!
