June.19 – A Little background on my latest city break, a few weeks ago I visited Poland for my boyfriend – Krystian’s brothers wedding, it is the first time I have been but I am sure there will be many more trips in the future. We went for 5 days in total, most of this was spent in the area my boyfriend grew up but as we were flying from Warsaw (Modin) airport we decided to spent our last day and night exploring Warsaw. The flights are really reasonably priced on Ryanair and the flight time from the Midlands was around 2-2.5 hours so you can easily justify a long weekend. And you can’t complain when it’s raining back in the UK and you’re enjoying temperatures of 31 degrees.
Where we stayed –
Mennica Central Apartments, which we booked through booking.com. It was in a new block of apartments in a great location and the apartment was really modern, I definitely took some homeware inspiration from it.
Exploring Warsaw –
The Old Town was so beautiful and really nice to walk around and enjoy a glass of wine mid afternoon in the sun. The city is really easy to get around too, not only do they have a tram but Ubers are really easy to order and very cheap in comparison to here, you can also hire electric scooters and bicycles, which you can drop off and pick up anywhere in the city.
What We Ate –
As someone who can’t eat gluten I always worry when visiting a new country that I won’t be able to find things I can eat or enjoy dining out, but I didn’t have any problems at all and ate really well, we went to La Cantina Meyhane in the Old Town, who had plenty of choice and I can honestly say it was the best gluten free pizza I have ever eaten. I promise I did experience lots of traditional Polish dishes whilst I was there which were all really tasty, I was just craving Pizza after walking miles.
A massive thanks to my tour guide, translator and boyfriend for showing me the sights, I couldn’t recommend adding Warsaw to your European City Breaks bucket list more, it’s a must see and won’t break the bank.
