Warsaw is a beautiful city to visit in summer. Almost a quarter of the city is green space, offering many attractions for visitors. Read on for our guide to experiencing summer in Warsaw!
The Vistula river is the place to be if you feel like dancing! There’s lots of places to kick up your heels, but we recommend, ‘La Playa’! They organise weekly Zumba and Salsa classes, and also offer great music and drinks!
We also recommend BarKa, which is a bar on the boat. They’re known for their great atmosphere and events!
But if dancing isn’t your thing, no problem! There are boulevards on the left side of the river, so biking or sitting with a beer is no longer a problem. And on the right side, you can find sandy beaches to have a campfire on! So prepare your marshmallows, buy some campfire wood, and enjoy the summer eve!
It’s a popular student district with around 30 little bars, pubs, and Shisha places. Most importantly, it’s cheap! You’ll meet a lot of local people here, and is definitely worth seeing in the evenings!
Each weekend, this international food fair takes place and is sure to satisfy your cravings! Get a taste of authentic Polish cuisine, or try something different. They also offer yoga classes, and its location is perfect if you just want to chill in a grassy area!
Żarcie Na Kółkach takes place beside the PKIN or at the National Stadium, but the events are held regularly, so check out their Facebook page for current info!
Not interested in yoga? The city has open air cinemas, and almost always have English films or subtitles!
Believe it or not, Warsaw has tons of options for water sports!
Our top recommendations are:
- Port Czerniakowski – wake boarding, kayaking, or kayak polo.
- Pomost 511 – Stand Up Paddle (SUP)
- Strefa Sportu nad Wisłą – skim boarding
El International Jazz Music Festival is a free, open air festival in the centre of the Old Town in Warsaw. You can listen to some of the best musicians in the world, surrounded by a historical city centre.
Łazienki Park hosts a classical music festival every Sunday, featuring music from Chopin.
Not far from the Old Town and the river side is this unique attraction. Every Friday and Saturday, they host a light show on the fountains, paired with music! And if you’re not here on the weekends, the fountains still run!
