TO DO

Chopin Vodka Tasting

Let’s set the record straight: Poland, not Russia, invented vodka, so what better place to experience a vodka tasting? I know what you’re thinking: it all tastes the same. But I guarantee that Chopin Vodka’s Masterclass will change your perception of Poland’s national drink. During the tasting you will sip 6 – 8 clear vodkas made of various ingredients such as potato, rye and wheat and distilled between one and four times. The differences are sure to surprise you.

Eat Polska Food Tour

When most foreigners think of Polish cuisine, only one thing comes to mind: pierogi (dumplings). But Polish food has so much more to it than that, and one of the best ways to learn about it is through a culinary tour with Eat Warsaw. The company was founded by Michał, a man passionate about telling the story of Poland through food and drink. Join one of their daily food tours and you will sample over a dozen dishes at four different establishments.

Łazienki Park

Łazienki is a beautiful park in the center of the city that was once the summer retreat of Polish Kings. It is a lovely place for a Sunday stroll, particularly in the summer when Warsaw residents gather on blankets to enjoy live Fryderyk Chopin concerts. Concerts usually run from mid-May through the end of September and happen every Sunday at 12PM and 4PM, rain or shine.

Warsaw Uprising Museum

In 1944 the citizens of Warsaw, many of them women and teenagers, waged a battle against the occupying Nazi forces in an attempt to liberate their city. It is a story not often told outside of Poland, but it is pivotal for understanding Warsaw then and now. Filled with authentic artifacts and firsthand accounts from the Uprising’s participants, this museum is poignant but also very engaging.
