Warsaw travel tips

 About the city

 Warsaw has been the capital of Poland since 1596. The city has been witness to numerous historical events, including the 1920 Battle of Warsaw and the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Warsaw is sometimes referred to as the “phoenix city”, as it had been extensively damaged during the World War II and later rebuilt back to its greatness. The city is rich in priceless historical sites which managed to survive WWII bombings –  the Royal Castle in the Old Town, the lovely baroque Wilanow Palace, the picturesque Lazienki park, just to name a few.

Apart from being a historical city, Warsaw has also become the biggest business centre in Poland with various Polish and international companies. Not only it is a great place for work, but also an attractive area for leisure. Almost everyday you can participate in one of numerous cultural events organized in, among others, the National Opera house, many theatres including the famous National Theatre or art galleries. On the other hand, Warsaw is filled with restaurants, pubs and clubs. In other words, whether during the day or at night, you just can’t get bored in Warsaw! It is a city where you can see and feel the fascinating mix of history and modernity.

 

 The currency

 You can always check the latest currency rates at the website of the National Bank of Poland at http://nbp.pl/home.aspx?f=/kursy/kursya.html. While in Poland, you can exchange cash in an exchange office (“kantor” in Polish) which you can find e.g. in most shopping malls, at the airport or railway station. You can also draw money from numerous ATMs.

 Traveling to Warsaw

 It is easiest to get to Warsaw by plane, to the Frederic Chopin Airport located at the outskirts of the city. The airport serves most international destinations and flight providers.

 If you choose to go by train, you should best arrive at the Central Railway Station – all international trains stop there. The station is located in the strict centre of the city.

 You may arrive to Warsaw by bus, as it is well connected with most large European cities. There are several international bus stations in Warsaw, and the exact point of arrival usually depends on the carrier.

 Health insurance

 Health insurance is not included in the price of courses, therefore we recommend you purchase a health insurance before arriving to Poland. A good and inexpensive solution for young people is an insurance by EURO<26, information about whom you can find at www.euro26.org.

  Accommodation

  There are numerous hotels, hostels and private rooms available in Warsaw, therefore you can find something for yourself in a convenient location at any standard and price. It is best to have a look at various accommodation options via a website directory such as GO Warsaw (http://www.gowarsaw.eu/en?gclid=COb19PnY2p4CFQUFZgodY03uMg) or Hostel Bookers (http://www.hostelbookers.com/hostels/poland/warsaw/).

 

 Living in the Polish enviroment is an extraordinary chance to see how people live, what they eat and how they behave. Most of all it gives an opportunity to practice Polish from your course in the everyday life, and learn faster.
