Krakowskie Przedmieście 42/44, 00-325 Warszawa, Poland
In the midst of modern revitalization it's lovely to have a hint of vintage and historic style. At the center of Warsaw, to stay at the Bristol Hotel, is the perfect combination of both. From the drapery, china, elevator and lavatory fixtures....

Obozowa 99, 00-001 Warszawa, Poland
Every weekend, locals head to the Kolo Bazar in Warsaw's Wola district. Perhaps this flea market is more frequented by tourists in warmer months, but as a visitor in January, I felt like I had discovered a real hidden gem. It sells mostly...
Szara 10A, 00-420 Warszawa, Poland
This building was a social realist paradise where, previous to the fall of the wall, couples could dance and maybe even fall in love. Today it's quite the club with a huge whiskey bar, excellent cocktail program, live piano on the veranda, EDM on...
