Warsaw – the capital of Poland and the most beautiful places worth seeing

Although it’s the end of New Year’s Eve, you can still marvel at the splendour of Poland’s capital, Warsaw. The ice ring in the Old Town is one of the most beloved places for Varsovians. Nothing strange about that! The ring-shaped skating rink is located around the monument to Warsaw’s Mermaid and it is stunning. In addition, the illumination hanging directly over the ice surface creates an amazing atmosphere. Plus the brilliantly illuminated National Stadium and a bunch of other attractions that Warsaw has to offer.

Warsaw is not only dazzlingly illuminated during New Year’s Eve, but also throughout the winter – encouraging tourists to take walking tours of different parts of the city, which is certainly an amazing experience. The streets of Nowy Swiat are filled with themed restaurants, bars and clubs, which is another great advantage. This snowy time is both stunning during the day and night.
