Scenes from Poland, Part Two
The fantastic thing about our journey through Poland is the pace we’ve afforded ourselves to travel. With almost six weeks to spare in between our North American visit and our exciting trip to Greenland, we could have easily added a few new countries to our have-traveled-list, but instead chose to spend it all getting to know one country well.
We definitely made the right decision.
After spending ten days in Gdańsk we rode the rails south to Warsaw, Poland’s capital city. While we were sad to leave the warm character of the north, we found that it carried well to the south, with the people just as friendly and the atmosphere just as charming.
And so we begin recounting our stay in Warsaw again with a brief video – shots from all sides of the city that we quickly grew to love.

Looks wonderful! I love the bubbles and the colors of the sunset.

Thanks Mica! The bubbles was my favourite part as well. 🙂
Charming is right! Not how I pictured Poland at all, thanks for opening my eyes!

Glad to be of service Rika! 🙂
Love that photo! I’ve been wanting to visit Poland – I am part Polish after all!
You really should visit, especially if part Polish. We’re a little in love here.
That sunset pic is dynamite.
Very picturesque. Looks like a great trip.

You guys are definitely making me interested in visiting Poland!
Love the video, especially the time lapses and the different angles!
Thanks Amanda! Move it on up your list!
I’ve been to Poland twice (Warsaw and Krakow), and I hadn’t thought much more about it…until reading all your posts about it, I’m starting to think it might be creeping up the list of places to visit (again) once we get back to Europe!
I’m so surprised at how off-the-radar Poland is!
Ooooh my God this makes me miss my Poland so much. And the one from Gdansk is just as enchanting. Thank you for bringing the feel of that country I love so much to my living room!!
I hope we are doing it justice Mariella!
Yes, you are!! xxx
Fantastic photo. Love the gradient in the sunset. It really balances well with the color of the architecture.
Looks so charming! I was honestly never too interested in visiting Poland, but I just may have to include it on my list!
Poland comes across as a very pretty country! And as you mention that there is plenty of vegetarian food, I think I would love to visit it 🙂

We haven’t been to Poland yet but it looks beautiful! And with all that green space I can see how it would be fun to explore. We have found that slow travel is almost always more enjoyable that frantically trying to squeeze in 3 or 4 countries. While many people do Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam all together we are going to take one month and cycle from the north to the south of Vietnam. We may be missing out on Thailand and Cambodia but we think the experience of taking our time in Vietnam will definitely be worth it.

My family is from Poland and I haven’t been back to Warszawa ,as we call it, in so long ! This brings back memories for sure and a trip before it lapses 5 years since my last time there
I’ve never been to Poland. Loved your video.
Such a beautiful city and so incredibly colourful…. and like you, I love the abundant green space! The flaming tuba was impressive as well!
The video is great! I have many friends in Warsaw, so I visit the city at least few times a year. I think that it is a little bit underrated, because it is actually so beatiful and interesting. There many various places for everybody. I usually try to find some bars or pubs to hang out with my friends. One of my favourite discoveries is Bubbles Bar in the Old Town. They have champagnes and sparkling wines as well as delicious food, all in casual, friendly atmosphere. It is my new “must” on the map of Warsaw;)
