Warsaw city guide: a day in Sródmiescie

Whole neighbourhoods have been revitalised, museums have opened and a flock of international designers have set up shop. Nowhere more so than in buzzing Sródmiescie, the heart of the capital, where cafe tables spill out on to the pavements and impromptu flower stalls are full of the scents and colours of the countryside – generous peonies and fragrant lilacs. Breakfast is a serious meal in Poland and tackled with gusto. Eggs, ham and cheese are the norm, but increasingly offerings include a range of fancier French-style patisserie. There is a host of cafes to choose from on pedestrianised Nowy Swiat, but (1) Vincent’s (Nowy Swiat 64), with its crowded shelves and tiny upstairs, is where queues start forming soon after it opens at 6.30am.

After all that walking, take a rest and watch the world go by at (6) Beirut (Poznanska 12). Where to stay. Brzeska street. Praga in Praga - North - My Destination Warsaw.

Fabryka Trzciny Art Centre. W Oparach Absurdu. W Oparach Absurdu is easily recognisable by the gigantic black and quite repulsive-looking synthetic spider which, for some reason, is sitting on the facade of the building in one of the central streets of the Praga district, Zabkowska, where some of the oldest houses have been preserved since mid-1800s.

W Oparach Absurdu

W Oparach Absurdu is one of the most bizarre bars in the city - the ultimate embodiment of the Theatre of the Absurd. Countless corners, alcoves, cracks; old furniture, presumably dating from the pre-war era: crooked and lopsided, possibly even covered in cobwebs, each piece seems to be telling stories of its long existence. Candles and neon lights, thousands of knickknacks - the way it always is at places which are allowed to grow their own „habitation layer" undisturbed. Piw Paw - Beer heaven. Plan B.
