Places to visit in Warsaw

When you think about pros of studying in a foreign city, don't forget about all the things that Warsaw has to offer. Here's a list of student-friendly spots worth visiting.

Vistulan boulevards and beaches
First sign of spring in Warsaw? Vistulan boulevards and beaches full of young and old people relaxing, chatting, and soaking up the sun.

Nowy Świat, Krakowskie Przedmieście
Restaurants, cafes, shops - you'll find it all there, but you don't have to spend money to enjoy a walk down those streets. The architecture and climate are more than enough to keep you satisfied.

Old Town
Historic center of Warsaw, a real must-see. In 1944 almost completely destroyed, reconstructed after the WWII, part of the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1980, now is one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Poland.

Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki)
It may not be the prettiest, it may not be loved by everyone, but we have to admit that it's huge. Unfortunately it's also a symbol of the complicated history of Warsaw. On the less serious side, PKiN comes in handy when you get lost and try to find your way in the city :-)
address: plac Defilad 1

Royal Łazienki Park
Place that is indisputably magnificent. If you need to leave the hectic atmosphere of the city behind, visit Royal Łazienki to admire its architecture and gardens. You'll feel refreshed (piano recitals will take your breath away) and maybe even enlighten (education section team will help you with that).
address: Agrykola 1

Hala Mirowska, Hala Gwardii
Shopping at local markets is a great way to get to know: a) Polish food b) Polish people. Buy groceries at Hala Mirowska and plan a weekend visit at Hala Gwardii, where you'll find amazing street food bars, restaurants and more.

Science center named after one of the greatest mathematicians and astronomers had to be visionary, engaging, and simply stunning. This paradise for experiment lovers is full of interactive exhibitions, including planetarium and High Voltage Theatre. Absolutely worth a few hours of your time.
