Weekend in Warsaw

Overview

Quote:
Take a walk through the large park near the embassies. Stay at the new Hyatt - it's the newest hotel in the city in years. Awesome rooms, fitness center, and great service.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Taxis are cheap, but I used the bus quite a bit within the city.

Beautiful rooms (this is a new hotel - just opened spring 2002). Club Oasis is the fitness/swimming center in the basement of the hotel - it's fantastic! Plus, they have personal trainers on hand to help out. This hotel is on Embassy Row - so it's a little bit out of the city center, but on a main road leading to the center. I stayed here free, but I've seen rates from $140 to $1,400 per night. Rooms have high-speed internet connections.

Lazienki Park

Attraction

Quote:
Huge park that is very busy during the day. Lots of walking paths, old buildings, ponds, and restaurants/cafes. There is a little stage near the center where various activities are going on during weekend afternoons. Park closes at dusk and they lock the gates with no warning - several of us got locked in one evening. We saw several kids climbing over the huge fences, but there is an open gate with guard at one far corner of the park.

Old Town and Old Town Market Square

Attraction | "The Old Town"

Quote:
The old town is small, but busy. There are some shops, but most people just go to walk around or to sit in one of the cafes. The old town square looks authentic, but it was rebuilt from ruins after WWII. Off one of the streets from a corner of the square you will usually see a long line at an ice cream counter - my Polish friends said it was the best ice cream around.
