Uncover the Polish capital on short breaks to Warsaw, where medieval majesty and 20th-century drama meet in charming harmony.
Thinking of a Warsaw city break? Read on to discover why you should go and when, and then use TravelSupermarket to compare the best deals...
Even the old is new in Warsaw. The Old Town's narrow, cobbled streets and open square, with its mermaid statue, were lovingly restored after being ravaged during World War II. The red Royal Palace and the colourful city houses' tall, playful façades contrast with the Palace of Science and Culture, the tallest building in Poland. Drink in the views from the terrace on the 30th floor – it’s the best way to get your bearings in this sprawling capital city.
Situated on the banks of the Vistula River in the east of Poland, Warsaw is a great destination for a short break. Visitors get a feel for Poland from the moment they arrive at Warsaw Chopin Airport (WAW), following a flight time of two-and-a-half hours from UK airports. The past is laid out for all to see, while the architects of the present continue to create a skyline that will stand the test of time.
Must-see attractions in Warsaw include the Royal Castle, Old Town Square, St John’s Cathedral, and the Saxon Gardens. If you have time, be sure to check out the National Museum and the Polish Army Museum too. Muranow is also an interesting place. The district’s former life as a concentration camp and war-time ghetto still haunts the streets. See the Ghetto Heroes Monument and visit Pawiak Prison Museum.
Stay as centrally as possible in Warsaw to get about easily on foot. The city centre is fairly compact so choosing hotels in prime locations, such as those in Old Town (Stare Miasto) and New Town (Nowe Miasto), is a wise move.
To find the best deals on city breaks to Warsaw simply use the search tool on TravelSupermarket to compare prices before booking your perfect trip.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
New sights and sounds, plenty to eat and drink, and endless things to see and do - it doesn't get much better than a city break. So, don't let a rip off spoil your next one.Read moreabout 7 common city break rip-offs and how to avoid them
