At Warsaw Chopin Airport, you’ll have access to bus routes, train lines, and the car rental service. Should you want to get through the airport faster on your return trip, you can purchase Fast Track on the airport’s website, and as you’re getting through a bit faster than most, you could chain that with the Executive Lounge option, complete with self-service bars and comfy seats. The executive lounge costs 180zł (£35). On top of this, you’ll find a whole bunch of shops, restaurants, duty-free stores, and more.

Warsaw Modlin Airport doesn’t give you as many options when trying to work out how to get from Warsaw airport to the city centre, but in the terminals, you can expect your usual array of bars, restaurants, lounges, and duty-free, and other shops to fill the time.

When’s the Best Time to Fly to Warsaw?

May - September is considered the best time of the year to fly to Warsaw, as it provides you with the best possible weather, with June, July and August offering heights of 28 C and lows of 15 C. This is the ideal weather for discovering many of Warsaw's sights, such as The Royal Castle and the Palace of Culture and Science.

The Warsaw Philharmonic and the Grand Theatre are spectacular towering buildings that look truly magnificent when the sunlight highlights their columns, and the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition is held every five years in the prestigious Philharmonic, in honour of Chopin himself.

With warmer temperatures and (hopefully!) clear skies, you'll be able to walk, bus, or cycle through the city and explore all of its tourist hotspots, as well as its cosy hidden nooks. Visiting in the milder months gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sun and have lunch or a coffee, outside one of the many quaint cafes that line the scenic old town square.

The square is considered one of Warsaw’s highlights, lined with stunning 17th-century burgher houses, as is seen in Amsterdam. These buildings house several cafes, restaurants, shops and a variety of museums, including the Museum of Warsaw on the northern side of the square. At the centre of the square is a famous warrior mermaid statue, which dates back to 1855.

While the square, and the rest of the city, is beautiful in Summer, you may also want to visit in Winter, when the ice rink is lit up with the glow of lights and stalls for Warsaw's Christmas market. Whether you visit the city in sunshine or snow, you are guaranteed a huge range of places to see, shop, eat and drink in the culture-rich Warsaw.

There’s plenty to spend your złoty (the currency in Warsaw) on in the capital city of Poland. The top attraction for those wondering what to do in Warsaw tends to be the Old Town. You’ll spot the old city walls, Barbican, Royal Castle, and St. John’s Cathedral here, but there’s much more going on than historic buildings.

If you like browsing museums, there are plenty of buildings to check out and exhibitions where you can learn about historical events or check out the gift shop. You could go to the POLIN Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich for a look at the history of Polish Jews, Muzeum Powstania Warszawskiego or ‘Warsaw Uprising Museum’ or the Museum of Caricature E. Lipiński, which showcases the most prominent caricaturists in Poland.

You could venture to the Warsaw Zoological Garden to support endangered species breeding programs, get a slice of history, and see the real location of a Hollywood movie. At Warsaw Zoo, there is a gene bank for endangered species and the site is renowned for having launched the CITES Centre to support global conservation efforts. As for the site’s movie ties, The Zookeeper’s Wife recounts how its owners rescued Jews and hid them there during World War II.
