Explore beautifully decorated city

To get into the Christmas spirit, a walk along the beautifully decorated historical Royal Route up to the Old Town is a must. Each year, hundreds of lights in various shapes and colours illuminate the city, making it a perfect setting for unforgettable festive moments.

A giant Christmas tree is erected in Castle Square with sparkling presents underneath. This year it will be lit on 9 December. On top of that, Varsovians can enjoy splendid Christmas decorations installed off the beaten track – for example, on Grzybowski Square, the Warsaw Uprising Square, and Wileński Square in the Praga district, on the right bank of the River Vistula. Join locals also for a walk in the gardens of Wilanów Palace which already in November transforms into winter wonderland with hundreds of thousands of lights .

Amazing illuminations can also be admired in the Royal Łazienki Park, which is beautifully decorated, with a wonderful Christmas tree set in front of the Palace on the Isle. And for a magnificent panoramic view of the illuminated city, go after dark to the 30th floor terrace of the Palace of Culture and Science, the tallest building in Warsaw. Holiday decorations adorn the city until the beginning of February.
