Welcome to the summer edition of Warsaw In Your Pocket! This is definitely our favourite time of year in the city, as its population takes full advantage of the good weather, and hanging around the many outdoor hot spots in and around the city, lounging around in the many bars, beaches and other riverfront hangouts along the river Wisła. Whether you choose to cycle, walk, lounge or simply sightsee, there’s plenty to do during the warmer months – read more about outdoor activities in Warsaw in our feature on p.8. There’s more to the city
than summer loving, as the city’s cafe culture, foodie scene and nightlife is in full swing, all listed in these very pages. Of particular note is the return (for one last season in its old location) of the fantastic Night Market (p.82), where food and culture mix, along with a host of other outdoor seasonal places to enjoy (p.107)! The city that is vibrant in every sense of the word, offering you sightseeing in the bucketload, from fun-filled activities to some serious history lessons in the many museums, and the events calendar too is full to the brim (check out our ‘Events’ section, p.16). As always, let us know how you got on in Warsaw on our Facebook page and/or show us what you’ve seen during your time in the city by using the hashtag #Warsawinyourpocket on social media, or if you prefer, just use good old fashioned email: email@example.com.
