Generally speaking, Polish cuisine is hearty and uses a lot of cream and eggs.

Ale Gloria 

Adress: Trzech Krzyży 3, Warsaw

Magnificent, enjoyably over-the-top restaurant in the finest part of Warsaw where the strawberry-themed decor appears amazingly at home and where the food - often featuring strawberries - will leave you determined to come back for more

U FUKIERA

 Adress: Rynek Starego Miasta 27, Warsaw

Fukiera is Warsaw’s oldest restaurant and without doubt it is also the most famous.
The atmosphere is a unique mix of medieval and old aristocracy, while the menu is a lavish version of traditional Polish cuisine. Candlelight in combination with a superb wine list set the mood for the perfect romantic evening in an environment that will transfer you to a different era. Grilled steak is the speciality dish and there is a varied choice of fresh fish. The restaurant is situated in the vibrant Old Town, ideal for taking in a stroll after your meal.

The Belvedere

Royal Bath Gardens, an extraordinary location perfectly reflected in the style and atmosphere of the restaurant itself. 

PAPAYA RESTAURANT

Papaya is one of the many restaurants in Warsaw that represents a new craze for Asiatic cuisine. A fusion of Thai, Japanese and Chinese dishes are prepared by native chefs, while many of the ingredients are imported from the Far East. The décor is minimalist monochrome with discreet Oriental touches such as the only oyster aquarium in Poland, which gives the restaurant an elegant look.
Opening times please see F.A.Q.

Sightseeing

There are many reasons to fall in love with Warsaw and we just wanna share a few of them with you. Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland´s largest city and an economic, political and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid featured on the city seal. Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. Feel the spirit of competition and innovation.

You will find further information here.

Old town

 Walking the streets of the Old and New Towns allows you to rest from the the bustle of central city life. Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history, and in the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.

The Royal Castle in Warsaw

The Wilanów Palace is one of the most precious monuments of Polish Baroque. Built for King Jan III Sobieski at the end of the 17th century and gradually expanded by successive owners, it represents an unusual combination of a traditional Polish court with an Italian rural villa and a French chateau. The interiors of the palace, with their original design and decadent furniture, represent three style eras.

Copernicus Science Center

A kingdom of experiments and a heaven for those interested in the world. Here everyone can delve into nature’s mysteries, conduct experiments on their own and, above all, have fun.

Multimedia Fountain Park

Warsaw has now joined these cities - since May 2011 it has had a new tourist attraction - multimedia fountains at the foot of the castle. They are located in an enchanting place, near the Old Town and the Vistula.
Up to 30 thousand litres of water a minute stream out of 367 nozzles. The streams are lit with colourful light from nearly 300 LED reflectors. In time intervals, impressive laser animations appear on the mist from nebulised water.
The ‘Water – Light – Sound’ multimedia shows take place each Friday and Saturday from May till September at 9.30 pm (May and October - 9 pm).

National Museum

The museum contains a rich collection of exhibits from antiquity to modern times. The building originates from the inter-war period. During the World War II it secretly stored some of the Royal Castle treasures. It organizes numerous temporary exhibitions presenting art  from all over the world. The Vistula-side building wing is the Museum of the Polish Army presenting the history of Polish military featuring an interesting outdoor exhibition.

Łazienki Królewskie Museum Park

Łazienki Królewskie Museum is a Palace-Garden complex which includes a park (76 hectares of nature, right in the city center) and numerous historical objects. The park was created using the formerly wildly growing forest, allowing the animals to be 'detained' under natural conditions. In the 18th century it became the most beautiful planned area in Warsaw and one of the most beautiful in Europe, equally stunning in terms of its greenery and architecture.

Łazienki performs a variety of functions: it is a museum, a place of cultural, scientific and entertainment events, and a favourite place for walks. It is also an important place for music lovers. For 50 years, at the foot of the world's most famous monument of Fryderyk Chopin, on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer, free piano concerts have been held, gathering crowds of tourists and music lovers.

F.A.Q.

1. Emergencies

From fixed phones:

999: Ambulance

998: Fire Brigade

997: Police

981: Road Assistance

986: Municipal Police

Using mobile phones: remember to dial the local code before the number, for example:

22 - 997 to call the police in Warsaw. Emergency calls from phone boxes are free of charge. If you do not know the local code, dial the general emergency number for mobile phones: 112. The operator will request the appropriate emergency unit. We recommend using direct emergency numbers in the case of danger (997, 999, 998) because in some areas the general emergency number (112) still does not work properly.

These numbers may also be useful:

Warsaw public transportation information (22) 94 84

Cracow public transportation information (12) 91 50

International flight departure information (22) 650 39 43

International flight arrival information (22) 650 42 20

2. Electricity

Electrical sockets in the Republic of Poland are one of the two European standard electrical socket types: The "Type C" Europlug and the "Type E" and "Type F" Schuko. If your appliance's plug doesn't match the shape of these sockets, you will need a travel plug adapter in order to plug in. Travel plug adapters simply change the shape of your appliance's plug to match whatever type of socket you need to plug into. If it's crucial to be able to plug in no matter what, bring an adapter for all three types.

3. Business Hours

Most of Warsaw museums open their doors the whole week.The daily opening times vary from museum to museum, but most museums will be open between 09:00 am and 6:00 pm. During the weekend some musuems close a bit earlier

3.2. Shops

In Poland there is no opening time restrictions. Some shops therefore are open 24/7.Anyway, most of the malls closearound Supermarkets in cities and tourist centers often have open weekdays 6-22 clock and on weekends to 13 clock, in some large shopping centers you can shop around the clock.Department stores usually open weekdays 9-20 clock. Souvenir shops are usually open weekdays 9-19 clock.

3.3. Banks

3.4. Restaurants and warm meals

The lunch is served from 12 am to 2 pm. A lot of restaurants offers a cheap menu, but it's still difficult to get a good place in the restaurants because a lot of employed person don't go home for lunch. The dinner is served between 7 pm and 10 pm. Afterwards it's quite difficult to get a hot meal.

3.5. Post offices

The branches of the Polish Post Office (poczta) sell national and international stamps, sell phone cards and send faxes. Most offices are open from Monday to Friday, 8 am - 8 pm.

4. Money needs

The złoty , which literally means "golden", is the currency of Poland
Though it can take time to find a place where they accept travellers' cheques, you will succeed in the end. Banks are open on weekdays usually until 3pm - 6pm. Even better exchange rates are available in the numerous kantors (exchange offices - shop around to find the best deal) or at post offices. You can check the national bank rates at www.nbp.pl

Conversions

1 USD = approximately 3.0 PLN
1 GBP = approximately 4.7 PLN
1 EUR = approximately 3.9 PLN

5. Tipping

When you're paying for drinks or a meal in restaurants or bars and you get the cheque, you should give the amount you have to pay and wait for the change. If you give the money and say "thank you" it will be treated as "keep the change" type of tip. This also goes for taxis but in general  tipping taxi drivers is uncommon but you can do that if you want. The average tip is around 10-15% of the cheque. Tipping is not obligatory, you can tip whoever you want to show that the service was good.

6. Climate

Poland lies in a moderate zone with mixed continental and oceanic climate influences. The warmest areas of the country are the Silesian Lowland and Sandomierska Upland, while the “coldest pole” of Poland is the town of Suwalki on the north-eastern edge of the country.
