Dear Visitors and Readers,
October is a month in which the weather still favours spending time outdoors. At this time of year, I typically urge our guests to walk to the Stare Miasto (Old Town) where learning about the history of Warsaw and Poland can be combined with the enjoyment of a wealth of Polish and international cuisines.
Both the Old Town and Royal Route are great places to enjoy not just great Polish cuisine but also French, Asian, Italian and Arabic among many others. Visitors to our country should try our pierogi (traditional Polish stuffed dumplings) in one of the many varieties from sweet to savoury. You must also try our traditional Polish soups, fish and meat dishes and of course our doughnuts. These are rather less well-known outside of Poland and to try a quintessentially Polish type of doughnut keep an eye out for those filled with rose jam – a traditional delicacy going back to the 19th century.
Warsaw is a rather compact city with the distances between the most popular tourist sites, the best shopping streets and the most attractive dining options meaning you can easily move between them on foot. What could be a better way of experiencing the city than by taking a walk around our beautiful streets.
