Exotic and unique at rock bottom prices. What's not to love?
Spotting a good travel deal we decided to try for a Polish trio and add the capital city of Warsaw to our list of Polish cities.
Exploring the city we found churches...And as you would have guessed we also found playgrounds!Connor was in her most loved environment! It still amazes me to see her play with children of every nationality. The Pole kids were welcoming and kind.
Poland unfortunately gets dark very early in the winter - probably around 4 PM. Luckily our hotel was adjacent to a major shopping mall. It was one of the more interesting architectural feats I have ever seen with the glass dome and circular floor plan. I know it sounds silly but we couldn't have dreamt up a better evening out than dinner in the food court and shopping all around. Low prices, great selection and holiday lights to boot!
We found more playgrounds!
Warsaw surpassed all expectations. We thoroughly enjoyed our time together as a family and would recommend it along with Krakow as necessary stops in any European Grand Tour.
Below find a great 4 minute video by our European travel hero, Rick Steves. It recounts Warsaw's WWII history and will give you a good live peek at Warsaw.
