Sushi Iro

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Give me a pizza any day!"

Quote:
This little sushi restaurant is just around the corner from my apartment on Ulica Banderii. It takes 5 minutes or so to walk there. If you are coming from the city centre then you will need to take a tram 13, 23, 24. The tram stops on the opposite side of the road and the restaurant is about 2 minutes walk away. It is the first restaurant undermeath a semi circular block of apartments that face the main artery of Wola that leads all the way to Plac Bankowy and eventually the Old Town. This is a very small restaurant with three tables only seating 5 people at a push on each table. Tables are made from pine with ladderback chairs to match. My son has the same table and chairs in his flat. ...Read More

Grycan Ice Cream Parlour

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "Grycan - the Masters of Ice Cream"

Quote:
*******Grycan in Arkadia****** Grycan Ice Cream has been around a long time in Warsaw and you will find Ice Cream Parlours dotted all over the city. The Ice Cream Parlour I want to talk about is situated in Arkadia shopping centre. This is close to me and within walking distance. The address is Al.Jana Pawla II 82 and can be reached by taking any tram/bus to Rondo Radoslawa. Look at the tram/bus timetables outside the stops. If Rondo Radoslawa is listed jump on it. When you get off the tram you will see Arkadia, cross the road and enter the main gate. Once you have walked through the revolving doors on the right entrance into the shopping centre you will see the escalator stra...Read More

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Basil

Attraction | "It doesn't look anything like a church"

Quote:
Now this is a strange one, a church that doesn't really look anything like a church and can be easily passed by. The building I am talking about is situated on one of my favourite streets, Miodowa Street (Honey Street). It is number 16, to be precise. If you were walking on the same side of the road you would just carry on to the end of the street as the only sign that reveals the identity of this building is the cross on top of the building which can actually be viewed better from across the road. Ah, I have just remembered there is another sign and that is the triangle underneath the cross with an eye in a tympanum. I guess this is a symbol of the Holy Trinity. The building itself is el...Read More

Pac Palace

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "15 Miodowa Street"

Pac Palace Photo, Warsaw, Poland
Quote:
I think I may have mentioned before in my reviews of Warsaw that Miodowa Street is one of my favourite streets. Mainly because of the lavish buildings that line both sides of the street. They all are pretty spectacular but one that does shine out is Ludwik Pac Palace. Pałac L Paca or sometimes called Ludwik Pac Palace, is situated at Number 15 Miodowa Street, close to Krasinki Square and the Old Town of Warsaw. It is now houses the Ministry of Health and no longer open to the public as a palace. The original palace was built for Prince Dominik Radziwill in the 17th century, but later bought by General Ludwik Pac and remodelled according to the plans of Henryk Marconi. Marconi closed ...Read More

Morskie Oko Park

Best Of IgoUgo

Attraction | "Eye of the Sea in Mokotow"

Morskie Oko Park Photo, Warsaw, Poland
Quote:
Morskie Oko is an odd name for a park. When I first saw the name I was reminded of Norway for some reason but then I remembered where I had seen not only the name but the beauty spot that the name describes. Morskie Oko literally means 'eye of the sea' and is one of the most popular attractions in the Polish Tatra Mountains; a beautiful lake located at the height of 1,400 metres.Not sure why the park is called after this beauty spot as there aren't any lakes as such but there are three large ponds surrounded by some stunning willow trees and the park's location is on a scarp leading down to the Vistula. This is another Warsaw park I stumbled upon by accident as I really liked...Read More
