Four connected buildings, three squares, a park on the “beach”, lots of greenery, cars underground, garden and roof terraces, lively public squares, a cinema, theater, restaurants, pubs, and a ban on large-format advertising. These are the plans for the reconstruction of the Foreground of the Wilanów Palace.

One of the main assumptions of the project is to limit the placement of advertisements, the use of precious materials, glass facades and wood. The concept of developing this important part of Wilanów, originally dominated by a gigantic, closed, anti-city, concrete shopping mall, has changed significantly. This is largely due to several years of social work and the involvement of residents and local associations.

The project made a huge impression on the citizens of Wilanów. The pictures look really great. Visualization and the final result are often something different, but the direction in which the project went is pretty interesting. The very fact of maintaining a large space from residential buildings gives a nice effect and does not overwhelm like the original plan.

Does the foreground of the Wilanów Palace have a chance to become a place vibrant with life, green, open, friendly, not burdensome for local residents, a place everyone can be proud of? It all depends to a large extent on the provisions of the new Municipal Spatial Development Plan.

This week you can become a part of the 16th Jewish Culture Festival “Singer’s Warsaw”. This festival has it all – concerts, theater performances, author meetings, Jewish cuisine workshops and educational walks. There is truly no better way to discover Jewish culture and heritage than during Singer’s Festival.

Polish and Jewish culture has always been a mix in Warsaw. The festival has always been perfectly organized thanks to Gołda Tencer and the Shalom Foundation. It is a festival of music, theater, literature and visual arts. The goal of this festival is to promote Jewish culture, both, in traditional and modern way. Lots of artists are inspired by Jewish history and create great artistic projects.

During the festival, the greatest representatives of Jewish culture from around the world come to Warsaw: from Israel, the United States, Sweden, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Canada, Denmark and Hungary. Most of the events take place on Grzybowski Square and Próżna Street and change this part of the city in a wonderful center of Klezmer music the dance with the smell of nutmeg, cloves and honey in the air.

Yiddish culture returns in pre-war films and contemporary performances, in Jewish cutout, ceramics and Hebrew calligraphy workshops.

Singer’s Warsaw Festival is one of the most important artistic events in Poland, showing Jewish culture in the broad context of Polish and world culture.

The festival is an incredible way to present that, despite the tragic experience of the Holocaust, Jewish culture is still developing, and the artists representing it has increasingly new, fascinating proposals for a wide audience. Due to the various forms of expression that Polish and foreign artists use, the lost world of Polish Jews returns to Warsaw. Singer’s Warsaw Festival is the best proof that Jewish culture is still alive and extremely important.

Today (21 August 2019) at the PGE National Stadium in Warsaw, the world-famous band Metallica will play a concert as part of this year’s WorldWired Tour.

The team has been performing for the 12th time in Poland and will be at the National Stadium for the second time. There is probably no person in the world who would not know at least a few Metallica songs. Songs such as “Enter Sandman”, “Master of Puppets”, “Nothing Else Matters” and “Unforgiven” are simply classics of contemporary music. The band went on tour to promote their latest album “Hardwired … To Self-Destruct”.

Metallica was founded in Lost Angeles in the early 80s. In 1991, as many as 766 thousand records were sold in Poland. The album “Hardwired … To Self-Destruct” was the second best-selling album in Poland in 2016 – despite the fact that it didn’t go on sale until November.

In 1999, Metallica played for 30,000. spectators at the Gwardia stadium as part of the tour promoting the album “Garage INC”. In 2010, Metallica performed at the Sonisphere Festival at the airport in Bemowo together with the iconic bands Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax. The band returned to Bemowo airport two years later, and in 2014 metal classics played a concert at the National Stadium in Warsaw. Five years later, Metallica returns to the Stadium.

So far, Metallica has played over 150 concerts on four continents. In addition to the material from the album “Hardwired … to Self-Destruct” they also perform their hits from years ago.

If you don’t have a ticket for the group’s upcoming concert yet, nothing is lost. The tickets went away very quickly. However, an additional pool of tickets was added at the last minute.

The atmosphere of sleeping in a tent, backache, canned food or external toilets are just a few reasons why camping was probably not an option during your longed-for vacation. However, if you miss a sense of closeness to nature on trips, it’s worth discovering Glamping. It is a combination of “glamor” with “camping” and is conquering Europe.

Their location is usually in forests or in the middle of nowhere, but they are nothing like the nightmare associated with a camping site. Glamping is closer to a hotel than to a camping. Inside you will find everything you need for a perfect rest: a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom equipped with a bathtub and toilet (and sometimes even much more)…

This business is taking its first steps in Poland, but there is no shortage of lovers of luxurious communing with nature. This is a great compromise for busy people who need space and distance from the city, but who value comfortable conditions.

Glamping does not always look the same, it can be a luxury tent, a charming tree house with air conditioning or a vintage trailer. Often, owners also offer various SPA services.

Everyone will find something for themselves, but remember that glamping has become extremely fashionable at an express pace, so you need to think about reservations much earlier.

I present a list of 5 glampings that delight in every respect:

  1. Tatra Glamp – an amazing view of the mountains is the biggest advantage of this place. You can calm down here. The Podhale climate and tents called klapnioki are a perfect combination.
  2. 4rest Glamp – each of the modern yurts is designed for two people who value comfort. You can also relax in the sauna or tub. The most important aspect of this place is, undeniably, closeness to nature.
  3. Glendoria – probably the most known glemping in Poland, a real Masurian idyll. It is a farm of the 1930s, but the tents are a real hit. Located away from the hustle and bustle, right next to the forest, guaranteeing intimacy and silence. Decorated with colonial furniture, which resemble Asian luxury atmosphere. Outside, each of the tents is equipped with a private fireplace. The property also offers Camp Spa services.
  4. “W drzewach” (In the trees) – a tree house, a dream for every childhood. Now you can finally make it come true by going to Nałęczów. There we will find 3 unique “apartments” designed in a tasteful and minimalist style. Thanks to the wooden construction and huge windows you can feel a real connection with nature. Fourth house is a sky SPA. What more could you want?
  5. Hobbitówa – we will find here only natural raw materials, such as clay, wood, stone or straw. If you have something hippie in you, this place will be your second home.The forest hut is equipped with a clay kitchen, an oven and a brick shower. Everything is also very eco, an example is water that comes from rain. The huge, panoramic window is a place where you can spend hours, in a blanket with a cup of tea watching the surroundings. The house is suspended on a slope, and in front of it is the San River gorge.

We encourage you to contact our office if you want to experience this luxury adventure of your life and escape the rush of big cities.

It is a one of a kind Rock celebration which every year attracts tens of thousands of people of all ages and nationalities. This year the first day is set on 1 August (Thursday) and will last until the 3 days. The first edition of Woodstock took place in 1995 and since then it has been an amazing journey full of great music, unforgettable atmosphere and hippie vibe.

It takes place in Kostrzyn upon Odra and the area of the festival is huge. It is divided into 5 stages: Main, Small, Lech, Viva Kultura and the ASP Night Stage. On each of the stages you can find some amazing artists. This edition the stars of the Main Stage will be Ziggy Marley (the oldest son of Bob Marley), Lordi, ACID Drinkers and many others! The ASP Night Stage is something pretty special – this place is not about music, but about talking. During the meetings participants can take part in a discussion with famous people concerning almost every topic. This year The ASP Stage welcomes among many for example: Olga Tokarczuk, Wojciech Smarzowski or prof. Ewa Łętowska. The organizer of the festival is the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity.

The whole event is special for several reasons, let’s name two of them: it is free and everyone can take part in it as a performer! You are able to send your CD and it doesn’t matter or you’re in a popular band or just debutantes, everyone is welcome.

Pol’and’Rock is an incredible event where people can connect, enjoy and feel free, no matter who they are or where they come from. It is a real Festival of Freedom.
