We visited Warsaw for our wedding anniversary and spent a little over a weekend there. 3 days to be precise. I know that Poland seems like an offbeat choice, but we are all about doing things that are offbeat, and what better than an important occasion to do it? ?
Poland is a beautiful country with a rich history associated with it. The weather is very temperate with the winters being very cold (In March when we visited, it was around -3 degrees even during the day), so make sure you carry a lot of warm clothing!
In consultation with our Polish friend, we put together a list of places that we wanted to visit and hence visited the following places :
1. Royal Castle : This used to be the erstwhile residence of monarchs. It is a beautiful construction and located in the old town (right at the entrance).
2. Palace of culture and science : This is a beautiful high rise in the city and if you take the elevator upstairs, you can treat yourself to a fabulous view and some delicious coffee like this! Oh, and it's also the tallest building in Poland!
3. Copernicus science centre : I was like a kid in a candy-store here. Yes, despite science not being my favorite subject in school, I enjoyed myself thoroughly in this wonderful place inspired by the legendary Nicolaus Copernicus who hails from Poland. You can do fun experiments, watch amazing movies on astronomy and eat delicious Polish food in their cafeteria.
