• WARSAW HOLIDAY REVIEWS

Warsaw
The rather drab aspect of modern Warsaw, with its uninspiring high-rise blocks, belies the fact that before World War II this was one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Since the war-time devastation the dogged citizens of Poland’s capital have rebuilt their city, and its heart remains spirited, lively and energetic behind the bland exterior. Thismore

We (that being my husband and I) arrived to Warsaw from the US completely jet lagged. Happily -- and confusingly -- it was summer, which meant the sun set around 10 and rose around 3:30. Due to a lack of a watch or clock, we sauntered off to town before 6 am more than once. It's nice to see areas like the new Old Town deserted, or perhaps when things are just starting to get set up, and then come back later in the day when everything's buzzing. Another good thing about our time confusion was that we managed to get great photos in perfect lighting without having to worry about the crowds. My favorite part of Warsaw was undoubtedly Lazienki Park. We spent hours there and failed to see the whole thing. In the summer, the rose garden is in full bloom and if you manage to go at a sunny 5 am, like we did, you will see dew drops covering the delicate petals. At some point as we meandered through the park's wooded paths, we started hearing cats screeching bloody murder. At least, we thought it was cats. That horrid sound actually turned out to be coming from the peacocks that are roaming free near the Lazienki Palace and amphitheater. There was something wonderfully surreal about watching peacocks sitting on statues or walking around the old stage. Despite the beauty of Lazienki Park, Old Town, and some wonderful architecture scattered about town, Warsaw as a whole is a jarring place. Much of it was razed to the ground during World War II, which means that a great portion of the current city is made up of Soviet-era buildings -- huge, imposing buildings or faceless, deteriorating buildings -- that can't help make a person wonder what life was life just a few decades ago.

The new town is drab, but I loved Warsaw's old town with all the frescoed buildings, churches and square full of people. I spent hours just sitting there taking in the atmosphere and came back day after day.
