The church ranks among Warsaw’s oldest buildings. Over time, it has seen many reconstructions, resulting in its present-day appearance, unchanged since 1788.

There are many ways of getting around Warsaw that do not involve a pogo stick or a Bouncing ball. We have listed the most common ways of getting around below.

Bus & Tram

Warsaw bus and tram ticket machine, don't fight it when it tries to eat your ticket. Travelling by bus or tram, please note that it is best to have a ticket before boarding the bus/tram, you can buy them in the front, but that can be a bit of a hassle. You can buy tickets in advance, they are only valid from the time they are stamped in the bus or tram. This is done in small devices placed around the vehicle. Please note that the machine will swallow the whole ticket, stamp it and return it to you, so please don’t fight it as it takes your ticket, you will get it back.


To plan your journey, go to the Warsaw Journey planner.

Things to see

So you are in Warsaw, now what? You might have more time in the city than the wedding can fill, so we recommend that you take a look around, see some of the sights and maybe tasting some of the local foods, like McDonalds or KFC… or maybe something not one of those. We have collected a list of some of the things that we would recommend you to see, preferably after your hangover has subsided.

Stare Miasto

Old Town

Walking the streets of the Old Town and New Town allows you to rest from the bustle of central city life. Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history, and in the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.




ŁazienkiŁazienki Królewskie Park-Palace Complex

The park and palace complex at Łazienki are one of the most beautiful of this type in Europe. Established in the 17th century, the landscape gardens feature many interesting architectural monuments, the most important of which include the Palace on the Island built for King Stanislaw August Poniatowski – Poland’s last monarch. It served as his summer residence and was famous for the Thursday dinners.





Pałac w WilanowieWilanów Park-Palace Complex

The summer residence of King  Jan III Sobieski and then Augustus II as well as subsequent aristocratic families. It is an excellent  representation of European Baroque at its height and a homage to the former greatness of the Republic. The palace is surrounded by a grandiose, two level Baroque Italian garden and a romantic park in English style. Wilanów is the venue of important cultural events and concerts. The former stables house the Poster Museum.




PKiNPalace of Culture and Science

Completed in 1955 as a ‘gift from the Soviet people’, the building is the embodiment of Socialist Realist architecture. It is still the tallest building in Poland and fulfils the role of a cultural centre accommodating theatres, museums, a cinema and a concert hall. The highest viewing platform in Warsaw, on the 30th foor, offers an excellent panoramic view of the city.





Muzeum Powstania WarszawskiegoWarsaw Rising Museum

Opened in 2004, on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising, the museum pays tribute to all those who fought and died for their country’s independence. Housed in a former tramway power station, the modern museum guides visitors through interactive displays, video footage and photographs.





Muzeum NarodoweNational Museum

The museum contains a rich collection of exhibits from antiquity to modern times. The building originates from the inter-war period. During the World War II it secretly stored some of the Royal Castle treasures. It organizes numerous temporary exhibitions presenting art  from all over the world. The Vistula-side building wing is the Museum of the Polish Army presenting the history of Polish military featuring an interesting outdoor exhibition.




FontannyMultimedia Fountain Park

Located in a lovely site between the Old Town and the Vistula River. On hot summer days, the Fountain Park serves as a refreshing asylum for tourists and locals alike, while in the evenings it captivates with performances of colours and fabulous shapes.





There are of course many other places to see in Warsaw, a good Google search will give you plenty of things to choose from, or maybe you have talked with someone Polish at the wedding who might know of a cool place or two that might not be full of annoying Tourists. For more places see here.
