5 Places Locals love in Warsaw, not the usual tourist attractions!
The largest park of Warsaw, designed in the 17th century and home to the picturesque Palace on the Isle. Fun fact: the literally translated name of this park would be “Royal Bathrooms”.
This historic cemetery is a final resting place of a number of great Poles. It covers an area as large as the Vatican City. Go there for an afternoon walk – it may sound creepy but it’s totally beautiful there!
Before WWII Warsaw had the biggest Jewish population in Europe – so the Museum of the History of Polish Jews is a must-visit. The postmodern museum building, located in the Jewish ghetto area, is worth seeing itself!
A lot of cities have rivers but not a lot of them have regular riverside beaches! Beach bars are open throughout the summer, go there for a beer or a party. You’ll meet all the young Warsaw there.
5. Milky bars
Milky bars are culinary remnants of the communist era. For as little as 2 euros you can eat a meal similar to the one a Polish grandma would offer you. Bonus: decor that hasn’t change since the 70’s.
