This past weekend we enjoyed a lovely few days in beautiful Warsaw.
Robert and I really want to take advantage of his days off and travel as much as possible. After their win (!) on Friday, they got the rest of the weekend off...so a weekend getaway it was! Warsaw is the capital of Poland and only 2 1/2 hour train ride away which made for a easy journey.That made this guy very happy...
We really did not know what to expect, but as soon as we arrived we were so pleased. Warsaw is a beautiful and bustling city, it was such a pleasant surprise.
We checked into our hotel (Hotel Intercontinental...one tip? stay here!) and then chatted with the concierge to figure out our day. We first decided to hit the beautiful Łazienki Park.
The park was about a 40 minute walk from our hotel, which we didn't mind because it was such a great way to see the city AND we stopped at the cutest french bistro (Charlotte) on the way.
The park was breathtaking and full of every fall color you could imagine.
We spent the afternoon walking under it's trees and soaking in it's beauty.
And playing in the leaves!
After our visit to the park, it was time to head to our dinner reservation. The concierge at our hotel set it up for us and honestly we had no idea what to expect. But once again, so pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed our meal and wine in such an elegant ambiance, it was such a treat. If you ever find yourself in Warsaw and want to enjoy a nice dinner, Rozana is a must. After dinner we enjoyed our hotel's beautiful pool and a relaxing evening.
The next day was spent enjoying their buffet breakfast (Roberto's favorite) and exploring Old Town.
We had a little more time to enjoy the city before our train left so we headed to Warsaw's biggest mall (Arkadia) and enjoyed a fun afternoon of shopping and eating.
This trip was so needed...it made me fall more in love with Poland and it's beautiful culture.
Warsaw, thank you for a beautiful time.
Linking up with Bonnie.
