With Powiśle being known to local Varsovians as a cool district to hang about for years, the area has only fairly recently begun to gain international attention - being listed in the top 10 cool districts in the world by The Guardian. Not to be scoffed at. At IYP, It's been one of our favourite haunts for a while, therefore, when plans for the new Elektrownia Powiśle all-in-one complex were announced a few years ago, we hoped this wouldn't be another copy+paste effort. When it finally opened in May 2020 after a COVID-19 delay, we can only say we were impressed. The exterior doesn’t look all too big, but once inside you realise it’s much bigger than you’d ever expect! So what’s here? Imagine this as a multifunctional centre, including sooped up shops completely new to Poland (nay, in Central and Eastern Europe even!) such as Urban Outfitters, True Color, Weekday, COS, Elementy, Paprocki & Brzozowski, Balagan, Galilu, Chosen By, Gasanova and Converse (to name a few), plenty more boutiques, beauty salons, a top floor event space, as well as their awesome gastro and nightlife offer. You can shop until you drop, then pick yourself up with some great food, all the while being delighted with the look and feel of the place too.
