    Default 16 days in Poland!

    I leave for Poland on the 27th. Going to Slupsk, Warsaw, and Krakow.
    I have spent a lot of time in Krakow and am really looking forward to my visit. I went to Warsaw before but was outside of the city both times, not very fun. I am told Slupsk is in the middle of nowhere.
    Any members from Poland? Any suggestions?

    Always looking for good food, high quality entertainment (not strippers or clubbing), and church architecture.

    So you want to avoid the path normally reserved for tourists in Warsaw? Nevertheless I suggest you to visit some of the points that tourists go to in Warsaw. I.e. Krakowskie Przedmieście.

    Ok. Now I will enlist some places that locals go to (I will add their webpages so you can find them faster):

    Bars (Street name) - Lemonbar (Sienkiewicza), Sketch (Foksal), Casatotu (casatotu.pl Nowy Świat - they serve best drinks in the world)

    Food - Sushi: sotosushi.pl, sensosushi.pl (my favourite), Italian: vilano.pl, Bukieteria Roma (Mokotowska 49), Polish food: Przegryź (Mokotowska 52), you may also be interested in visiting: strefagourmet.pl

    Clubs: platinumclub.pl, nineclub.eu, Mazowiecka street.

    Shopping: likuskonceptstore.pl - this store has some nice architecture inside as well you can eat something there

    Newly opened science centre is also worth a visit - kopernik.org.pl.

    There are many more but I think that it is enough for a short visit in Warsaw...

    When you go to Krakowskie Przedmiescie and you see thousands of people either celebrating or praying on knees, just pass them and continue walking

    I'm not originally from Warsaw but if I was to go there again, I think I'd use Surowy's advice.

    You should check out the Palace of Culture. Top floor gets you an awesome view of the city. I think it's like 10-15PLN($4-$5) to get in.

    Surowy and Rafal,
    Thank you for the insights! I will see what I can get to. I just got a confirmation of the location. I have been there before, and it seemed out of the way.

    Often students will offer to take me out. Now I have some place to ask them to take me to. There is a cool looking military museum right down the road. I hope it is open and I can get by there.

    From Wiertnicza (your location) you are close to vilano.pl and sensosushi.pl. The military museum is also on Wiertnicza street. As you wish you can also consider chinagarden.pl. If you like military museums there is also Muzem Wojska Polskiego near Plac Trzech Krzyży and Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego on Grzybowska St (Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego recommended by everyone who visited it but I still haven't been there so I have no opinion).What is your visit's purpose if you don't mind asking?

    Thank you for the recommendations. I will try my best to catch a couple. My purpose for coming is business. The company I do contracting for works with Wszechnica Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego. I think the Warsaw and Krakow trainings I am doing are both sponsored by Wszechnica.
