Warsaw, considered one of the greenest capitals in Europe, has so much to offer to guests coming to explore the city. Why not take advantage of the wonderful summertime, perfect for sightseeing, to see the beauty of the Warsaw outdoors? If you wish to enjoy the sunny days in Warsaw to the fullest, you should not miss experiencing a few events and places, that will ensure you have an unforgettable time in the city.
 
On Saturday evenings I sincerely recommmend the famous “Jazz Na Starówce” (20th Jazz In The Old Town) Festival jazz event. In the very heart of the Old Town, on its main square, each Saturday at 7 pm (July and August) open air jazz concerts are held. The program is available at jazznastarowce.pl and runs until August 30. Among the artists that will perform this year, you will find big names such as Urszula Dudziak Superband, Roy Hargrove Quintet, Ofir Schwartz Trio and others. Make sure you make a booking in advance at one of Warsaw Old Town premiere restaurants, so then you enjoy both an excellent meal and drink while listening to live music.
 
Another event worth placing in your sightseeing calendar is the famous concert of Fryderyk Chopin music which since 1959 has been organized in Łazienki Park under the statue to the famous Polish composer. The concerts are given every Sunday at midday and at 4 pm – a full schedule can be found at tifc.chopin.pl. The atmosphere is unique: you can either have a picnic, enjoy some ice cream or coffee, or just relax by the fountain on the grass and listen to some wonderful classical music. Suddenly you will feel as if you are far away from civilization and your day-to-day routine, while still being in the centre of the city. After the concert why not take a walk along the Royal Route towards the Old Town and make a stop at Hotel Bristol, founded in 1901 by another famous Polish composer Ignacy Jan Paderewski, where you can enjoy a glass of wine at the Bristol Wine Bar. During the summer you can sit on the terrace and enjoy live DJ music (Tuesday-Friday from 8 pm), selecting wines originating in the best known vineyards of the world and accompanied by a wide choice of foods, including local Polish cheeses. The wines and champagnes have been handpicked by Robert Mielżyński, the most famous wine personality in Poland. More information can be found at hotelbristolwarsaw.pl.
 
There is a countless number of events worth attending and places to enjoy in Warsaw. If you need more recommendations to make your stay in our unique city fruitful and unforgettable, please contact a Warsaw concierge at the hotel where you are staying. We will be more than happy to assist you in planning your stay. We will also ensure that your visit to Warsaw is unforgettable, so that you will wish to return soon to draw from the spirit of the city again.

    Great article. As a frequent guest at the Hotel Bristol I can personally vouch for the importance of a good concierge staff. I can also vouch for the GREAT concierge staff at the leMeridien Bristol! Mr. Biales and his staff are, perhaps, the most competant concierge staff in the city. No request is too big or too small. They make things happen when it seems impossible. You picked the cream of the crop, inyourpocket, when you went to the Bristol concierge staff for answers!
