The iconic skyscraper in the center of Warsaw is celebrating its 30th birthday.

On this occasion, Marriott and Fujifilm Polska are organizing an amazing competition. The rules are extremely simple, the point is to take the most creative Warsaw picture, which of course will include the building of the hotel. The photo should be placed on your instagram profile (it must be public) and the hashtag #warsawmarriott30 should be added. You should also follow the @marriottwarsaw and @fujifilmpolska profiles, and then nothing but wait for the results!

Not only the competition is extremely interesting, but also its awards. The winner will be able to take part in photographic workshops. But not just any! They will take place on the rooftop of the Marriott. After classes, there will be a roaring afterparty at the Panorama Sky Bar (40th floor of the building), where you will be able to get additional prizes, such as vouchers for luxury hotels and SPA, as well as the instax Wide 300 camera.

Photos should be uploaded by September 18 at the latest, the results will be published the next day, and a week later the winner will be able to photograph Warsaw from above. The organizers emphasize, however, that the photo does not have to be taken “now”, maybe you once did a great photo of the center of Warsaw and you still have it somewhere in the depths of computer or cell memory? Go ahead and start searching, it’s worth it!

The workshops will be conducted by leading photographers – Wojtek Wieteska, Victoria Franko and Jacek Bonecki. Other participants of the event will be photographers associated with Warsaw, as well as media representatives.

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.

 There is no better season than Summer – sun, cold drinks, long walks, late sunsets and outdoor cinemas. It sounds like a dream come true, but there is one thing missing in this counting – ICE CREAM! At the current temperature, you can’t stand a day without a scoop of cold ice cream.

While being in Warsaw there are a few ice cream heavens you definitely must visit! Everyone can find something perfect, no matter if you are young or old, vegan or not, team sorbet or team cream.

  1. “Roszki” – the best cream ice cream in the world! No kidding! You can choose a classic one like cream flavor (36% fresh cream) or go crazy with something new like mascarpone combined with Jagermeister. And for all the kids (and adults as well) you can even choose the color of your ice cream cone.
  2. “Frank” – you still didn’t have chance to eat breakfast? Well, let me suggest you an ice cream sandwich! This place was created by two sisters from New York and they have started their business by selling ice cream at a local market. You can choose both ice cream flavor as well as cookie dough!
  3. “La Bomboniera” – well let me just say – Molto Bene! Italian bakery, where you can now also get ice creams which taste like straight from Sicily. Don’t underestimate their sorbets, they are truly delicious.
  4. “Ulica Baśniowa” translates as Fairytale Street and it surely is. Located in a beautiful and green district ice cream café serves a lot of flavors. You can try also the sugar free kind or cremino (cake ice cream). Definitely a must, but be aware that whole Warsaw knows how good they are, so the queue can be sometimes really long, but it is totally worth it!
  5. “Syrenka” is something for vegans. You can buy them in several cafés and shops. They are produced on the basis of coconut milk and cashew – this combination makes them very creamy and delicious. The flavors are unique, for example black coconut, peanut butter and double chocolate.

There is nothing left to say. Just Smacznego and let me know which is your favorite ice cream spot!
