Old Town

Gospoda Kwiaty Polskie
Bursting with flowers and rural touches, entering Gospoda isn’t unlike clambering inside an old granny’s attic. Cheerful in look and style, the rustic energy extends to enthusiastic portions of Polish classics. Gospoda Kwiaty Polskie ul. Wąski Dunaj 4/6/8, gospodakwiatypolskie.pl

Seasonal Star Though it doesn’t have to be winter to enjoy Bar & Books, it definitely helps. Seen through frosted, foggy windows it’s a venue that reveals itself as a place of dark, delicious colors and rarefied air. Occupying the kind of charismatic gatehouse you’d read about in Dickens,...
