I spent August bank holiday weekend in Warsaw along with my boyfriend and one of my best friends and her boyfriend. Her boyfriend's mum is half-Polish and they own a flat in the city so we took well advantage of that for a cheap weekend away.

After getting in at 6.15am - no idea who's bright idea that was - on the first night we spent the rest of the time trying to recover but that didn't stop us taking advantage of what Warsaw had to offer. We had a perfect tour guide who spoke fluent polish which made our trip a lot easier especially as we got on the wrong bus when we arrived at the airport! We managed to squeeze in a trip to the zoo, a visit to the war musuem, a trek up to the viewing tower to be rewarded with amazing views, numerous meat and cabbage dumplings and lots of delicious ice cream.

Warsaw isn't a huge city so there isn't really much to do but it's brimming with history. The old town is gorgeous and it's amazing to think it was completely rebuilt after the Second World War. It's very picturesque to eat your dinner in an open square watching the world go by. The city is full of lots of pretty parks and on a nice day there's nothing better than a wander. I'd love to visit again in the snow! I had a lovely few days away and was a little bit upset to be heading home to face reality. Luckily I have Ireland to look forward to next month.

Have you ever been to Warsaw?
