I had a recent break away with my amazing friends to Poland. I had lots of snaps and questions so I decided to draft this for anyone interested in going. I wont drag on but hopefully give you as much information as I can.
We stayed in Warsaw and flew with Ryanair. Our flights ranged from €80-100. We used Sun Transfers company to pick us up in the airport and dropped us to our apartment. The mini bus fit all 8 of us. They were punctual, polite and waiting for us there and back. Worked out at €15 each for both ways and we were about 40 mins from airport.
When we arrived we went for dinner about ten minute walk from our apartments called Warsaw City Apartments but they have a large selection of apartments available. First thing 8 hungry and thirsty women did next was hunt for a nice restaurant nearby. We went to FLAMBEERIA. It was a gem of a spot and we all opted for fresh stone baked pizzas and cocktails. Delish! We went to a Sheesha Bar and chilled out for an hour or so before heading back to the apartment.
We were up super early for our trip to Auschwitz. We booked the trip with warsawtraveltours. They were amazing I would highly recommend them. They picked us up at apartment at 5am and we had a short journey to train station. We were greeted with our tickets and a three hour train to Krakow. From there we had another bus directly to Auschwitz. We were shown a video documentary on Auschwitz on this bus journey and it took about an hour. We had a guided tour of both camps which was very hard to witness and learn about the horror of what happened in Auschwitz. Every single hair on my body stood up the entire time I was there. It was so worth a trip in my opinion if you were considering going and something that will most certainly stay with me forever.
We had a three hour stop over in Krakow after the guided tour and in this time we had some fab food and drinks in the square and done a horse and kart ride around the town. I absolutely loved Karkow. The atmosphere was amazing and the people were great. Then it was the long journey back to Warsaw. More info on Krakow HERE. We were all absolutely shattered from all the travel so if Auschwitz is on your to do list I would consider staying in Krakow.
Next day we had breakfast in Aoili which was amazing. We then walked down to old town Warsaw and did some tourist sights and had food and drinks in a local restaurant VIRTUOSO . We had a few too many drinks and then headed home to get ready for our night out. We hit the local bars and nightclubs in Warsaw that night but I am actually not sure of the names.
I will definitely be heading back to Poland in the near future. I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the atmosphere, the food and the people. I will be staying in Krakow if I return and I spotted a great Radisson Hotel right in the main square. Most city breaks will set you back a lot of money but not Poland. One of the best parts of the trip for me was how affordable it is. Guilt free 🙂 To my amazing friends, I love you all so much and still have pains from laughing so hard all weekend! #whoownsyateddy
