Merged: New Year in Warszawa

I'm lucky enough to be in Warsaw from 21st Dec till 2nd Jan. This will be the first year I have been there to see in the New Year.

I'll probably be in a quite romatic restaurant away from the crowds, but was wondering where you guys will be 'seeing in the bells' as we say in Glasgow?

Usually there's this huge, open party in front of Pałac Kultury i Nauki, but I'm not sure if this will happen this year. It changes sometimes and they do it in some other city in Poland. But we will see.

Is it any good? Glasgow organises a similar event in George Square, but it is always full of 'neds' ('Non-educated delinquent') Although the official definition is that ned is a derogatory term for "a young working-class male who dresses in casual sports clothes". so I tend to stay away and enjoy a nice bottle of wine with charming company.

BTW...I'm a registered user, so why doesn't my profile info show up?

well, you know, mostly go there people who have nothing better to do. and since it's a huge event, all kinds of people you can find there.

but it's not too bad. last years they prohibited alcohol there so not so many drunk people came. you can go there for like one hour. it will be too cold to stay longer anyway ;)

lol, too cold.........I remember February last year. It was like -10...Brrrrr.

Think I'll give it a miss, and find a cosy restaurant, with a real fire hopefully! Failing that, a romantic walk in £azienki Park, feeding the peacocks would be unforgettable. but again maybe to cold.......

Yep logged on first, but still coming up with no profile :( Any admins that can help?

Hi Gary
It's a good idea to miss the mass event I think, unless you love to be in a crowed of lound, drunken ppl. Although I have never attended this event but I also prefer more cosy places. I've never been to a restaurant for a NYE but usually spend it with frieds. However this year in the UK :)

Wish you good luck

Thanks Kaja,

We haven't made plans yet - still trying to agree on a restaurant! Any tips from anyone greatly appreciated.

Hi, maybe you find this interesting:

virtualtourist.com/travel/Europe/Poland/Wojewodztwo_Mazowieckie/Warsaw -468976/TravelGuide-Warsaw.html

I dont know any place with a firepot... and most of Warsaw restaurants are rather stylish or posh, not necesarity cosy i would say, I hope someone else will give you a good advise. Personally I visit sometimes the Tandoor palace but its indian. Also Kampania Piwna but their style is rather Bavarian, but very comfortable. U Kucharzy - I like the food and its Polish but it looks more like a cantine than a restaurant to stay all night. I dont know what to advise you. Taqueria Mexicana - not posh and mexican, I like it. I've been to casatotu.pl also, I liked both decoration and spanish food. It's by Magda Gessler, she's a person who can be recommended.

I wonder where you will finally spend this time!

You must just make sure guys and girls that you book in advance. Last year, I called round and round to find a restaurant that would even be OPEN on New Year's Eve. We could only find two in the vicinity of the old town that were open, and the restaurant where we booked, we filled the last table - two weeks in advance. By the time, we just arrived in Poland from SA, and it was the strangest thing for us that restaurants were closed on New Year's Eve.
