Inspiring places: Warszawa Powisle

Hello or shall I say cześć,

I had a great week off, so expect lots of posts telling you more about Warsaw/Warszawa and Mazury (Polish Lake District).

Let’s start with my new discovery in the capital of Poland: Warszawa Powisle.

Warszawa Powisle like Berlin


The area is situated in the centre of Warsaw but also very close to the Vistula river, hence the name (Vistula=Wisla in Polish).



This place is buzzing day and night. The old train station has been transformed into a hipstery bar.

The plethora of bars is overwhelming…great!

I arranged to meet my friends at Stacja Mercedes. Such a great pop-up restaurant and bar, with a simplistic wooden decor and an outside space where you can relax in the sun. It’s a Mercedes showroom too, so you can admire old and new cars at the same time.

Their cocktails (yes, they do Aperol spritz) and cider were delicious. Look, everyone is smiling!

Great place for a group of friends and families. They even have an in-house childminder.

Before heading towards the river, we decided to have some pancakes. Great place for sweet and sour crepes’ lovers: Cafe Rue de Paris at Dobra street. Their interior design increased my satisfaction with the food.

So the river bank is an exciting meeting place for those who like to party, listen to music (jazz, funk, soul etc.) or just have a beer by the water. Nearest metro station: Centrum Nauki Kopernik.

Personally, I think Warsaw is a fantastic choice for the summer. Did I tell you it was 30+ degrees?
