Warsaw Destinations Not To Be Missed
This unique attraction counts more than a hundred years and is one of the few working antique devices from the 20th century. The Fotoplastikon allows you the one of a kind opportunity to take part in the historical viewing of changing three-dimensional pictures. The Fotoplastikon has a shocking collection of over 3000 original photos, taken all over the globe. This one of the most interesting Warsaw destinations was created for educational purposes but now serves as a fun activity. In the WW2 the Fotoplastikon was not controlled by the Nazis. Therefore it was like a fresh breath of freedom in the city of Warsaw. Make time and visit one of the most unique vintage devices in the whole world.
World’s narrowest house – Keret House
Keret House, not only is the narrowest house in the world, but also a brilliant work of art. The Keret House is kind of inserted between two existing houses. This project was inspired by a very diverse history of Warsaw’s architecture. The cities experiences with war and post-war periods ended up with the city being filled with a quite chaotic architecture outlet. Despite the chaos, Warsaw ended up to be a beautiful, yet the lawless face of a creative and art-filled city. The Keret House is a child of a project dedicated to filling voids in Warsaw.
The Neon Museum
Communistic glamour. That’s right! This once independent museum, which quickly became a national treasure, is dedicated to exhibiting neon signs from the Cold War era. Warsaw, at the time, was under the influence of the Soviet Union, so exploring these neon signs is really quite the experience. The Neon Museum is located in the Soho Factory in Praga – the creative heart of Warsaw, where the art scene is more alive than anywhere else.
Bazar Na Kole
Okay, so this place is something out of a hipster’s dream. Not many tours of Warsaw destinations cover this exciting market, but you absolutely MUST visit it if you get a chance. This market is opened every weekend, no matter what the weather is. You will find everything here. I mean – EVERYTHING. Anything from second-hand books, to vintage cameras, to famous artwork, to jewelry, toys, plates, bedspreads, clothes… EVERYTHING! This market amazes me every time. What is more surprising than the variety of things sold here are the prices. Believe me – the prices are insanely low. Thanks to the Baltic Tours, I got to visit this amazing market twice. And you just must visit too! I bet it’s in the Bazar Na Kole, patiently waiting for you.
Sklad Butelek is one of the most amazing clubs in Warsaw. Located in Praga – the part of the city where art is the most important currency, the club is not only for dancing and drinking. Every night offers a different event, everything from slam poetry to wild parties, to acoustic concerts. The Sklad Butelek has a very intimate and cozy atmosphere, and everyone is so friendly, you’ll feel like you’re surrounded by old friends. Just like art itself, Sklad Butelek is intriguing, ever-changing, heartwarming and always exciting.
