6 Essential Views of Warsaw 6 Essential Views of Warsaw

Don’t mess with anything but the best sunset spots

Watch candy floss-colored sunsets from the cosmic rooftop garden that sits on top of the BUW Library (Dobra 68/70) . Festooned with Triffid-style plant life and slashed with futuristic walkways, this unexpected park comes with the bonus of fab riverside views.

Think of the bell tower of St. Anne’s (Krakowskie Przedmieście 68) as a stairway to heaven. Haul yourself up the 147 steps to enjoy the city’s most picturesque viewing platform – it’s Warsaw’s top kiss spot!

When skies turn red head to the bridges of Warsaw. Scissored in shadows from criss-crossing steel support pillars, Gdański is a favorite for lovebirds, as is Świętokrzyski  – featured in a medley of romcoms, the initialed padlocks clamped to the railings are proof of its enduring appeal. For the best view, though, head to Siekierkowski : flanked by woodland, the river’s natural bend and the distant glinting skyline make it a favorite with professional photographers. 

At least do it once. Throughout summer, the 30th floor deck of the Gotham-esque Palace of Culture (Defilad 1), stays open till 11:30 pm each Fri and Sat. Seeing Warsaw’s illuminations spark up for the night is a sensation well deserving of the PLN. 22 entrance.   

At The View , you’re dancing with the stars in more ways than one. Rammed silly with an AZ list of local celebs, the open air deck of this 32nd floor club is the final word in NYC-style high living.

Accessed by Warsaw’s longest staircase, climb to the top of Warsaw Uprising Mound (Bartycka Street) for endless city views. Created from war rubble, the 141-meter mound is crowned by a monument to the Warsaw Uprising. Lit on August 1st of each year, a ceremonial pyre at the top is kept burning for 63 days to honor each day of the doomed insurgency.
