Guide to a modern Warsaw 

 

The Polish language school Together has compiled for you a full-fledged guide to the most interesting and modern places in Warsaw, where you can go if you know the Old town backward and forwards. Use it and have fun in the Polish capital city! 

 

Hala Koszyki

 
Hala Koszyki 

This is perhaps the most important and most lively modern space in the entire Warsaw, where bars, restaurants, and shops for different tastes are mixed in a bizarre kaleidoscope.

There are a lot of options for how you can spend your evening, e.g., you can arm yourself with oysters and sparkling wine, get a great vegan Burger, or arrange an authentic Indian dinner with butter chicken and naan tortillas.

Also in Hala Koszyki, you can find a cool bookstore, special thanks for the huge books selection from Taschen publishing house, bio-eco shop, designer stores and, of course, a giant bar in the center of the room. In General, at least one visit to this completely restored building of the historical market of Warsaw is strictly mandatory for everyone who found themselves in the capital of Poland. It's worth it!

 

Ogród Biblioteki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego

 
Ogród Biblioteki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego
 

It’s hard to believe, but one of the most spectacular gardens in entire Warsaw is not near palaces but on the roof. To be precise, it's on the University library roof. It is very easy to find this beauty as the library building is just a three-minute walk far from the Warsaw school Together - on Dobra 56/66 street.

Why should you visit this place? Well, firstly, it impresses with the collection of different flowers, bushes, and other plants, secondly, there’s a perfect view on the city and its skyline, thirdly, you can make tons of photos for your Instagram. By the way, Ogród Biblioteki Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego is one of the largest rooftop parks in all of Europe, its square is around 1 hectare.

In the library building, you can also find a lot of interesting things: from exhibitions to a beautiful store of old Polish posters and postcards. Unfortunately, you can’t enter the library itself, as it’s only allowed for membership cardholders, but the entrance to the park is free. You can find simple navigation in the place.

The opening hours of the garden vary depending on the time of year: in winter it is open from 8.00 to 15.00, in summer you can walk there till 20.00.

Centrum Praskie Koneser

 
Centrum Praskie Koneser 

The huge newfangled Centrum Praskie Koneser quarter seems to have everything. And even a little more. An impressive complex of buildings can be called a full-fledged neighborhood on Praga-Północ. Judge for yourself, Centrum Koneser has more than a dozen buildings designed in the neo-Gothic style. There is a passage, exhibition spaces, a decent number of restaurants, cafes, bars, lots of interesting shops, e.g., brilliant flower boutique Zielona łodyga or salon of craft Polish soap Mydlarnia Cztery Szpaki. There is also Google campus, Tesla showroom, and large-scale vodka Museum.

What does vodka have to do with Centrum Praskie Koneser? The most direct! The story begins in 1897 when Poland was a part of the Russian Empire. Back then there was a distillery at that place. Recently, the old buildings of the plant were completely reconstructed and renovated. This is how Centrum Praskie Koneser appeared in the form that we know it today.

Hala Gwardii

Another renovated historical building, which used to be a market, and now boils the cultural life of Warsaw. There is no secular gloss or some tricky repair. Everything is simple and unobtrusive. This, by the way, is what captivates Hala Gwardii the most.

Hala Guardii has a huge number of corners with food, a full-fledged, though small, food market and a decent number of places where you can drink Polish or crafted beer or wine.

Keep in mind that Hala Gwardii only works from Friday to Sunday. But almost every weekend there are completely different events from marts with vintage vinyl records or spontaneous dance parties to table tennis tournaments.
