Shopping in Warsaw

Warsaw is a place for those who love shopping: there are indie boutiques and concept stores with clothes and accessories by Polish designers, as well as shopping centres and outlets with global brand stores.

Various 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. Palace of Culture and Science, Koneser Praga Centre and Elektrownia Powiśle host 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.
