Tourists associate Warsaw with its atmospheric Old Town, skyscrapers and gray apartment buildings. However, Warsaw at night is different – it is more charming thanks to the illumination. If you decide to walk around the center of the Polish capital at night, you can find many unusual places, which are barely noticeable before the sunset.
1. Take a Tour of the Old Town
Warsaw was severely damaged during the Second World War, and its Old Town was almost destroyed.
That is why most “old” buildings have only some fragments of the walls that are old. In some constructions, everything was replaced.
Nevertheless, the old part of the capital of Poland is a wonderful and very pleasant place for walking at night when there are not so many tourists around. Note that many tour guides organize night walking tours around the Old Town.
2. Walk Along the Vistula Embankment
The embankment of the night Vistula blossoms with many lights on both sides of the river and has many bridges. One of the best panoramas along the street is seen from the bridge next to the Royal Square: on one side you can see Prague Park, on the other hand – the gardens of the Royal Palace and the Palace “Under the Bleak.”
3. Drink Beer Like a Local
You can taste traditional Polish sorts of beer – Lech, Tyskie, Żubr, and Żywiec. However, if you want to try real “live” beer, then go to Restauracja Pianka where you can taste beer together with traditional Polish snacks – potato pancakes, sheep’s cheese and even more.
There are about 20 different beers are served at the same time. All sorts of beer are written on the board at the entrance. The assortment is changing from time to time so that it would not be annoying for permanent customers.
