Reasons to fly to Warsaw this summer

19 July 2019

There’s something to suit all tastes in the Polish capital of Warsaw. Lush green spaces for the nature lovers, delightful local dishes for the foodies and some of Europe’s best nightclubs for the party animals. But that’s not all. Here are some more reasons why you should book your flights to Warsaw straight away!

The Warsaw Uprising Museum

While Warsaw boasts copious fascinating museums, your first stop should be the museum close to the locals’ hearts – the Warsaw Uprising Museum. This museum has been able to document the horrors and disasters of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, where the Nazis murdered many innocent Polish people in the capital. The exact number killed is not known but is estimated at between 150,000 and 200,000 in a bloody battle that lasted 63 days. In this time Warsaw was utterly obliterated. Spread across four levels, this museum precisely depicts what happened through some vivid mementos from the 1944 tragedy. 

Taste Poland’s iconic Wedel chocolate

Forget the Swiss or Belgian chocolate and indulge in Poland’s most exceptional offering; Wedel! The Wedel Chocolate Factory offers tours for visitors, and there are many shops and cafés throughout the country where you can sample some of the highest-quality chocolate you will ever scoff. Positively, a bar of Wedel chocolate is a bargain- it only costs around 2 or 3 złotych, be sure to take some home (or lots- that’s what our Excess Baggage allowances are for!)

The Bohemian neighbourhood of Praga

Step away from the commercial streets of Warsaw and discover something surprisingly different: Welcome to Praga!  Once a disreputable run-down neighbourhood, Warsaw’s right bank district of Praga is undergoing a rapid make-over.

In recent years, it has become something of a fashionable, edgy area and an alternative cultural centre. It is the only district in the capital to have remained reasonably intact after the Second World War. In fact, it now boasts some of the oldest surviving structures in the city; its streets taking on new life as townhouses and old industrial buildings are transformed into cafés, clubs, art studios and theatres. Praga is like a whole new town, and it’s only across the other side of the Vistula River. Experience the arty cafés, the cosy little bookshops, the local pubs with all the good vibes and the plenty of eye-catching graffiti!

There’s just so much more to see and do in the bustling capital of Poland. So, what are you waiting for? Take advantage of Air Malta’s new direct flights to Warsaw and make it your next city break destination this summer!
