You work for an international company at one of Warsaw’s coworking spaces. Business partners announced a visit. Apart from business meetings, they also have some free time planned. Where to take your foreign associates? We have some tips for you!
“It all depends on who do you want to take sightseeing. When is comes to German and British guests, there is no point showing them hipster joints, as they have more than enough at home. There are, however, several must-see places that you may show to your business partners regardless of their age or preferences. They may be boring for us, but for them they may prove to be a real treat” says Marta Kamińska from Solutions.Rent.

Royal Łazienki Park
Every tourist has heard about the Royal Łazienki Park. It is one of the most beautiful parks in Warsaw and clearly a must-see. The park, which was established in the 18th century by Stanisław August Poniatowski, offers many attractions, especially in the summer – feeding carps from the bridge next to the Water Palace, Chopin concerts, walks in the Chinese Garden and many more.
What is the oldest site in Warsaw? Jazdów. This is where the Ujazdowski Castle was built in the 17th century. A park was created around it and then relocated to the place, where the castle currently stands. Today, this is the location of the Centre for Contemporary Art. In Jazdów, there is also a settlement of wooden Finnish houses, which were a gift for the rebuilding of Warsaw to house those returning from the battlefront. When you visit the Ujazdowski Castle, be sure to take your guests to Qchnia Artystyczna for dinner. We recommend it!
