Enjoy Christmas shopping in Warsaw

In the Christmas shopping season, shops in Warsaw draw Varsovians’ attention as much for their sparkling festive window displays as for the shopping itself. Holiday deals, discounts, coupons, one-day-only specials, and sales make your Christmas shopping easier on your wallet.

Christmas fairs and yard sales gathering young Polish designers attract followers of the latest trends, and make a perfect spot to spark interesting and unusual present ideas too. The Palace of Culture and Science hosts the most interesting events of this sort. To get a Warsaw-themed gift, find the stall of the designers who want to offer something more than just another typical souvenir. Find one-of-the-kind products, such as a cutting boards or pepper mills in the shape of the Palace of Culture and Science, or a notebook full of photos of Warsaw walls and other flat surfaces you can write on.

Varsovians have at their disposal around 20 shopping malls, which boast not only a wide variety of shops, but also offer great entertainment areas. The three largest shopping centres – Arkadia, Galeria Mokotów and Złote Tarasy are located near the city centre. The latter is best known for its spectacular architecture, especially its signature wavy glass ceiling. All shopping malls in Poland are open 7 days a week.
