I'm looking at some very reasonable flight prices to Warsaw from our local airport for a few days in the
February 2015 school holidays. I quite like the idea of wrapping up in hats and scares ect, and am not adverse
to the cold, but I'm just wondering if it would be uncomfortably cold, and hamper our enjoyment of getting
around, and seeing places of interest ect.. I have read that it could be around minus 2, grrrr...
Has anyone been to warsaw or krakow during this time of the year?
I have been to both cities many years ago, but both during July/august.
I have wanted to go back for a long time. Any advice welcome
I've been away a few times on city breaks when it's been very cold and it has never spoilt my holiday. It's a different atmosphere and everywhere is geared up for the weather. In Krakow, where we've been, you'll appreciate the hot sausage stalls a lot more in the cold, plus the bars and restaurants will have lovely roaring fires
Go for it I'm sure you'll have a great time.
Seriously I wouldn't let it put me off, there are not as many tourists at that time of year so you can get to see the sights easier wiith less waiting and crowds.
Unlike here in the UK these countries just get on with life as normal in the winter.
Make sure you take some warm boots, warm jacket / coat, a hat and a scarf and off you go
I live in an area where most winters the temperature will hover around -8 to -10 for weeks on end occasionally sinking to -10 to -15 and life doesn't stop. People still go out of doors but just wrap up warmer.
Plenty of opportunities for stopping in cafés drinking hot chocolate to keep warm, and same in the evening with some good food and drink.
Going to talk to DH and DD tonight. We had said that we might go to jersey for a long weekend, but I'm really fancying Poland..
Taking in Brussells, Berlin, and finally Warsaw. Haven't done Eurostar for a few years, so really looking forward to it.
Throw in some nice fizz and nibbles from M&S for the journey and it's even better lol.
My Mum had given me cash for us to treat ourselves to a meal out whilst there but instead we had dinner on the train out and lunch on the way back.
There's a salt mine which we've always fancied visiting in Poland but it's in the Krakow region so not sure how that would fit in with your plans? It's around 300km from Warsaw but can be reached easily enough by train.
It's definitely on my bucket list!
each, and two nights in Brussels. Has been great travelling by train, and a nice change from flying.
Hoping to do more European train travel next year.
