Warsaw.

As my holidays just started I can share with you some pictures I took in Warsaw. Every summer I want to discover a part of Poland, as I find it a shame to know the whole world except for your own country. This year I got the opportunity to explore Warsaw. I must admit I am impressed. I thought it is a grey city, where the marks of the Second World War are predominantly visible and that the romantic old capital is Cracow. 

I was only two full days in Warsaw, which is obviously not enough to see everything. But maybe it's a good thing? Because I am in the mood to come back! The days were quite sunny and that made it much more pleasant. 

First I went to Pałac Nauki i Kultury. The history of the building is duller than I thought, but I still find it very impressive. If you want to visit it, do not only choose for the Viewing Terrace. There were plenty of people buying tickets for it, while I had to wait for a second person to arrive for a tour in the building. It is only 40 minutes of history. Go for it! :)


This is the view on the 30th Floor a.k.a. the Viewing Terrace.



Here you have Copernicus





Church of the Holy Cross




The gate of the famous University of Warsaw
One of the two best universities in Poland


& their library 


Kościół Wizytek
Or in English 
Church of St. Joseph of the Visitationists





The Presidential Palace


Piłsudski Square



Tomb of the Unknown Soldier



The Saxon Garden




The Grand Theatre


The statue of the famous Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz


The symbol of Warsaw
Syrenka Warszawska


Here you have it again, but somewhere else in Warsaw


I like this picture :) In the background you see the National Stadium 


This is in front of the Copernicus Science Centre. I suppose it's very interesting, but make sure you buy tickets online. When I arrived, too many people were in the centre and that's why they stopped selling tickets. I queued for 40 minutes and in the end I left. 


So I decided to go to Łazienki! Most of it is just a park, but there are some surprises inside. One of my favourites were the squirrels, that are absolutely not afraid of humans. However, I was a little scared of them haha :)





The famous statue of Fryderyk Chopin


& once again, Pałac Kultury i Nauki



Do not think Warsaw is grey. It's a mixture of old and modern, definitely worth to spend there some days of your holidays!
