DESTINATIONS TO CONSIDER – Warsaw, PolandAug 25, 2017
Looking for a unique and diverse city filled with history and charming architecture? Consider Poland’s capital city, Warsaw! Located on the Vistula River in east-central Poland approximately 260 kilometers from the Baltic Sea, Warsaw offers a beautiful city with a quaint and cobbled Old Town which pays tribute to the city’s determination and resilience through World War II.
There are plenty of activities to keep you busy as Warsaw offers some of Europe’s most interesting museums: the Warsaw Rising Museum, Museum of the History of the Polish Jews and the Neon Museum to name a few. The Royal Castle is also a great sightseeing spot whilst wondering through the rich colours of Old Town and if you a nature lover, the Lazienki Park is a beautiful green space to spend a relaxing afternoon.
If you are after a charismatic winter meeting destination, Warsaw is a perfect pick with quaint Christmas markets – don’t miss sampling some traditional Polish dumplings known as ‘Pierogi’. These are offered with a variety of fillings both sweet and savoury and are the perfect dish to keep you warm on a cold evening. If you are a foodie, try sampling some more Polish cuisine at the ‘Hala Mirowska’, Warsaw’s large market lined with banks of flowers stalls and local produce.
Connections in to Warsaw Chopin and Modlin Airport are easy and the city offers a cost effective and alternative destination to hold a meeting. It has numerous, large four star hotels that are very competitively priced- perfect for biopharma meetings.
Come see for yourself if you agree with the description of Warsaw being the “Paris of the East”!
