Warsaw Roundup

Having just spent a weekend baking in the heat of Warsaw, here are some ideas of what to do over there in the summer:

  • Lazienki Park
    • Vast park near the centre of Warsaw, very popular. Has lots of cafés an ice cream shops as well as red squirrels. Few toilets though!
  • Wilanów Park
    • The palace of Wilanów was built in the French style with lots of fussy gardens. It’s nice and cool in the summer and has rowing boats you can hire out to go out onto the river with. The best part is the branch of Wedel’s café outside the gates.
  • University Biblioteka
    • Why does Imperial not have a library with a roof garden as awesome as this? Go and enjoy then have lunch in their cheap, but excellent, cafeteria. Open to all.
