Warsaw holidays

Who is Warsaw suitable for?
Destination Much less well known than fellow East European capitals like Prague and Budapest, Warsaw is a fantastic and fascinating city. What it lacks in picture-postcard prettiness, it more than makes up for in its sense of energy and excitement and its rich culture scenes. Having been nearly flattened in the second world war and then having existed behind the iron curtain throughout the second half of the 20th century, Warsaw has about it a distinct sense of purpose these days. Many of its destroyed landmarks have been lovingly and laboriously reconstructed and a spate of new development has made this one of the most forward minded cities of the formerly communist east.

There are a number of top attractions in Warsaw including the charming Old Town and the iconic Royal Castle - both of which were rebuilt after 1949. There are a whole variety of excellent museums and art galleries amongst which, the recently built Chopin Museum, Warsaw Rising Museum and Jewish History Museum are well worth checking out. There are annual festivals in jazz, film and Jewish culture and there are a profusion of fantastic nightclubs and live music venues.

Weather Warsaw experiences a typically humid continental climate with very strong demarcations between the seasons. The winters are always very cold with average temperatures in the sub zeros celsius. In early April, the winter ends quite abruptly and the weather is fresh and pleasant as the continent begins to heat up again and by July temperatures are regularly hitting 30ºC and rarely fall out of the high twenties. The autumn is very pleasant too but winter sets in again almost as abruptly as it ended with temperatures plummeting in November. The wettest months are in the middle of summer when there are frequent storms.
