Welcome to the spring edition of Warsaw In Your Pocket! The streets are abuzz as the city is gradually shaking o the last of the winter chill! The city’s many parks and river walks are already blooming and beckoning the first wave of warm weather revelers. The city’s nightlife, cafe culture and foodie scene is also starting to spill out onto the sidewalks, boulevards, squares and riverbanks (hopefully not prematurely!). Warsaw is a city that is vibrant in every sense of the word, offering you sightseeing in the bucket-load, and for history buffs, plenty to explore and learn, both indoors and outdoors. April/May marks the 75th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (p.8), so why not read up on some history and check out some locations associated with the tragic events of 1943? If calming outdoor walks are more your thing, the Old Town (p.80) and Łązienki Park (p.88) will become more popular as the sun shines bright. Likewise, our events calendar too is full to the brim (check out our ‘Whats On’ section, p.18). As always, let us know how you got on in Warsaw on our FB page and/or show us what you’ve seen during your time in the city by using the hashtag #warsawinyourpocket through Instagram, or if you prefer, just use good old fashioned email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This statue of a laid back Faun, a half-human, half-goat creature from Roman mythology sums up how nice Łazienki Park (p.88) can be in Spring – both magical, and serene.
