Warsaw

Hala Gwardii

  Plac Żelaznej Bramy 1 ,   Mirów & Muranów         17 Jul 2019
Re-opened to the public in September 2017 after years of lying empty, Hala Gwardii, the twin building of Hala Mirowska, has now returned to its pre-war roots and is once more a food market where you can peruse and buy speciality products or feast on local and imported foods from a big choice of food stalls. After the war, it served as a bus depot until eventually becoming a sports hall used by the military Sports Guard Club (from where the name originates). It's a strange mix of things this new place. It feels like a less posh version of Hala Koszyki, a grimier version of Hala Mirowska (indeed, the exterior of the building is not in great shape!), and Nocny Market (night market) all thrown into the same mix. Despite the similarities, it's neither of these things. To add to this eclectic mix, the interior contains a boxing ring, not just for show, but for training and events! The walls too are adorned with legends of the Polish boxing scene, a homage, if you will, to the building's previous use. The choice of food is decent and worth exploring. To get there, get the Metro to Rondo ONZ and take the short walk north along Aleja Jana Pawła II or alternatively, take trams 17 & 33 directly to Hala Mirowska stop.
