Most attractions in Warsaw have to do with the WWII, and the horrible things which happened there, but Warsaw did not have that ”eery vibe” which can come from a hurtful past. The city had started again from the beginning, rebuilt the city for the new era, and rebuilt the Old Town to make it look exactly like it did before the war. For that very reason, Warsaw has the nickname of the Phoenix City: because it has also risen from the ashes. To read more about our time in Warsaw, Poland – The Phoenix City

Warsaw Poland Travel Video
Warsaw was a sober reminder of what had happened during the WWII, it was an interesting stop on the trip, and just like in Sarajevo, it gave us insight and started many interesting conversations.
Being reminded of the cruelty done to these people made us really appreciate our life and inspired us to live it to the fullest.
But it was also a great example of how a city can turn things around again.
From having been completely destroyed they started over building the city, and rebuilt the old town to look the way it did before the war – stunning.
It truly lives up to its nickname ”The Phoenix City”…
Guilt Of Gluttony In Krakow, Poland
There are a variety of places to eat in Krakow, catering to all types of tastes, as my friends and I discovered on a girly holiday there a few months ago.
One of the restaurants loved by all was ‘Al Dente’, a delicious Italian place in Krakow’s Kazimierz district. All their dishes are made with fresh ingredients and prepared by an Italian chef. The pizzas are mouthwatering, but so beautifully crafted that you feel as if you’re eating pretty healthily! They also offer a number of traditional Sardinian meals and some beautiful wines, all at very reasonable prices, resulting in six rather tipsy women by the end of the meal. The staff didn’t seem to mind though and were very hospitable, even offering a coffee and drink on the house, which we happily accepted.
For a more Polish dining experience I would recommend ‘Bohema’. As a musician I especially loved this place, and we were lucky enough to catch one of their folk music concerts, which was such a thrill for the ears and eyes! The restaurant is also in a cosy cellar, which is decorated with fancy furniture that really adds character to the place. As for the food, it is scrumptious and inexpensive, I had the salmon with capers, which was well presented and very filling!
Some of my other friends sampled the Goulash and absolutely loved it, they did not stop talking about how well the meat and vegetables had been cooked. It’s also worth mentioning that this place is ideal for big groups as it is quite spacious and offers a good variety of Polish delights. For a Krakow dining experience to write home about, I would highly recommend ‘Momo’, but be warned, if you are a meat fanatic this place is definitely not for you. The restaurant prides itself on the fact that they don’t use meat, fish or eggs. However the menu still manages to be huge, offering dishes from all over the world! I decided on the Southern Indian spinach pancake and some Tibetan dumplings, which was a bit ambitious but completely worth the guilt of gluttony! I also had some carrot cake for desert, really pushing my stomach to the limits, but I was so overwhelmed by the food I couldn’t help myself! For lovers of all that is wholesome, this is the place for you.
After a great, and varied, week of eating I can confidently say that Krakow is an exciting adventure for the stomach and would highly recommend it! For more info visit my destination Krakow.
