A weekend off in Warsaw

Blick über die Weichsel und Praga

I went to Warsaw for the weekend. Hoping for a spring weekend abroad, I got a chill, stormy and rainy city. The Warsaw I discovered had coloured houses in architecture from different decades, looking soft under the grey sky. Sometimes the higher buildings would fade in the clouds.

I had amazing food in more vegan cafes than I believe we have in Vienna. And I did hang out in cafes a lot, staying warm, deep into the last Harry Potter book. I don’t want to rush it but I also can’t wait to finish. Flat whites and hand lettered signs are everywhere, hipsters, too. Warsaw’s special history with neon reklama is still visible throughout the city at night.

Only on the last afternoon the sun broke through the clouds and it felt like the big weight of winter lifted for a moment, leaving the city glowing and changed.

    Wow, your photos are amazing! I think I prefer Warsaw in summer, because it is a little bit too cold for me in the winter… I prefer sunny seasons:) I have actually been to Warsaw this summer, after few years and I really noticed a huge difference – it has developed and became much more modern. I tried to explore as much as I could, and one place I liked in particular. It was a bar where my friends took me to celebrate my birthday – it was called Bubbles and it was one of the best bars I have ever been to, so cozy and casual. We had such a nice evening with delicious food and excellent champagne, I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate birthday :)
