Welcome to Warsaw In Your Pocket issue 107! Autumn is well an truly on the way, a great time to be in the city as the dry leaves rustle, squirrels rush to prepare for winter and the streets bustle with student chatter as the academic year gets under way.
It’s still warm enough to enjoy Warsaw’s parks and river walks, but if the weather does get cold or damp, it’s the perfect excuse to explore the city’s world-class museums – head straight to our sightseeing section on p.26 to see what’s worth exploring for whatever weather may come your way.
If you’re here on 01 & 02 November make sure to visit a cemetery – no, seriously (p.32). 11 November marks Polish Independence Day (p.8), and this year the country reaches the milestone of 100 years! The city that is vibrant, offering you sightseeing by the bucketload, fun-filled activities and serious history lessons, is also packed with events (check out our ‘Whats On’ section, p.20, for details).
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 social media, or if you prefer, just use good old-fashioned email: poland@ inyourpocket.com.
Peek-a-boo through an arrowslit on ‘Podwale’ (defensive walls) of Warsaw’s Old Town (p.34). In the distance, you can just make out the Warsaw Barbican gate, the link between the Old and the New Towns. Photo: gatsi, Adobe Stock.
