If you’re planning a trip to Warsaw this year, here is a list of all the exciting things going on all season long. And, don’t forget to book a local photographer from Warsaw, Poland to capture all of the highlights from your trip!
Visiting Warsaw in Spring
No matter what part of the season you arrive in Warsaw, you will want to head over to Wilanow Palace. It is one of the only palaces that has survived after WWII. Not only has the actual structure survived, but so have the garden grounds and the lake. If the temperature is right, the flowers are blooming and you’re planning a proposal, this may be the backdrop to your Poland proposal this spring. Or, you can hire a proposal photographer and spend the day in Lazienki Park where you can also find the Botanical Gardens, which opens in April.
For those colder spring days head over to the Copernicus Science Centre, especially if you’re traveling with your family. If you’re a total art buff, head to the National Museum for art that spans from Medieval times to present-day masterpieces. For a more contemporary twist, check out Zachęta, but for a more historical edge, spend a few hours in the Warsaw Uprising Museum.
If you’re traveling in mid-May, then you can head to Lazienki Park for a free Chopin concert, which takes place every Sunday. If you want to try delicious Polish food while sitting outside with the locals then you’ll have to spend your morning in a Breakfast market like, Mokotów Breakfast Market, Park Skaryszewski (Praga) Breakfast Market, or Żoliborz Breakfast Market on the weekends, which make for a great hangover meal!
For festivals and fairs this spring, you may want to look out for The Instrument Fair, where you can catch concerts, workshops, and instruments, of course. Then there are heaps of vintage flea markets for those looking for unique gems. On May 1st weekend, you will be happy to know that Majówka is celebrated every year, which is a weekend packed with events, drinks, and parties. If you’re traveling with your family, one of the events this weekend will certainly make for a fabulous backdrop to your family photoshoot in Warsaw.
Visiting Warsaw in Summer
If you’re traveling to Warsaw this summer with the intention to party, then head over to the Vistula river, it doesn’t matter which side of the river you choose, because both sides will have equally exciting events during both the day and night. This is also a great location to hire an affordable photographer in Warsaw for a sunset photoshoot along the river, after you’ve rented a bike and cycled along the “Sunny Route” of course.
For a quick break from the outdoors, you can visit the Keret House, but when we say quick we really mean it, considering it is the narrowest house in the world! For a unique outdoor experience head over to Powązki Cemetery, where you will be more than amazed at the sculptures placed all around the cemetery grounds.
For a fantastique multimedia show, which is fascinating for both kids and adults, check out The Multimedia Fountain Park, which uses lights, sound, and water to create a magical experience for its viewers. Here is a great opportunity to hire an engagement photographer for a picturesque engagement photoshoot to celebrate romance! But before the show, go kayaking on the Vistula river for a full day of fun and leisure. In the evening you can go bar hopping to sip on local beer, just make sure you choose the bars which have their very own beer gardens so you can enjoy the warm summer nights.
For festival fun, you can discover the summer solstice festival, Wianki, or the student’s festival, Juwenalia. Either festival will certainly be Instagram-worthy. Your Warsaw photographer will be happy to send your best portraits directly to your Instagram account!
