Take a break from the City in the City

Warsaw is a city that is still under construction. At the moment, as many as a dozen skyscrapers are being built here, including the highest in the entire European Union. But … there are also green areas that constitute as much as 25% of the city’s area, and several of them are especially welcome.

The Royal Łazienki – The famous park with the Palace on the Water, hundreds of tame squirrels and peacocks strutting proudly, with streams, ponds, hills, clearings and a monument to Chopin by a magnificent fountain (in summer, magical piano concerts are held here).

Mokotowskie Field – Huge green area, the central point of which is a magnificent pond with an island and fountains. A place full of sports and recreational activities.

Vistula Boulevards – This is where Varsovians like to rest on weekends, because the Vistula Boulevard is a unique scene club and party located on the shore of still a little wild river.

Zegrze Lagoon – Warsaw suffers from a deficit of city lakes, but in less than an hour you can get to the huge Zegrze Reservoir (41 km long and 3.5 km wide), where there is no shortage of attractions for lovers of all water sports and other forms of recreation.
