Lets spend some time together in Warsaw

| |
  

Have you ever wondered why David Bowie named one of the songs on his LOW album ‘Warszawa’? Or why Joy Division used to call themselves ‘Warsaw’? Then pay a visit to the city that spawned a thousand dreams of Mitteleuropean romance.

The city will welcome you warmly and you’ll soon be mingling with the Warszaw crowd. But what do you want to see? Warsaw’s architectural styles take in swathes of history, from medieval, through the baroque period, the nineteenth century, modernism and Bauhaus.

Or wander around the spectacular Museum Of Modern Art. Elsewhere, Saski Park and the evergreen gardens on the roof of the new university library both offer an exquisite respite from the clamour of the metropolis. In the afternoon you might enjoy an intellectual break at the best bookstore and sophisticated meeting point of Warsaw - The Tender Barbarian (‘Czuły Barbarzyńca’ - named after the famous novel by Bohumil Hrabal).
