Saski Gardens highlights

October 29th, 2007

warsaw saski gardens_6You will find food shops and bar/restaurants along any of the streets I just mentioned to pick up something cold (or hot) to drink on your way into or out from the park. The delicatessens are especially good places to stop in for picnic lunch supplies. Take-away meals are popular in Warsaw because there are so many parks throughout the city.

Outside Saski Gardens
Saski Gardens is a few blocks southwest of Old Town, and down the street from Krasinskich Park. Since the parks are so close to each other—though different by feel and use—and in equal proximity to Old Town, I’m going to include here the same information found on K-Park’s page.

You’ll find a wide selection of Warsaw hotels, vacation apartment rentals, and youth hostels to the south and east of the park. The Central Train Stations is only a ten-minute walk. Taxis are plentiful in Warsaw, and dirt cheap. Airport transfer services from Warsaw International Airport into the city center can be made in advance or upon arrival.

The warren of cobbled streets that lie east of Old Town Square are the most intriguing in Warsaw. The house at Kanonia 20/22 is not much wider than its front doorway, and is perhaps the narrowest home in the world. Nearby is a covered walkway built along the street after the failed assassination of King Sigismund III. Defensive walls mark the boundary of Old Town. Its highlight is the Barbakan, an imposing fort-like structure built in 1548.

It had basically fallen to ruin (literally, a pile of rubble) by the 1960s, so the Communist government rebuilt it from 1971-1984. It original palace dated to the 14th Century, had been residence to Polish kings, modern presidents, and finally the seat of parliament. You can tour the reconstructed royal apartments, filled with painting of famous Polish historical events.

Museums outside Saski Gardens include the Historical Museum (Warsaw history), the National Museum of art; a kilometer south of the park, at Szucha 25 is the building that housed Nazi Germany’s Gestapo headquarters during its occupation of Poland during World War II (ironically, the building had been built in 1930 as a centre for the study of religious beliefs); the tallest building in Poland is just down the street from Warsaw’s Central Train Station: the Palace of Culture & Science was commissioned by Joseph Stalin as a “gift from the Soviet people” in 1952. Workers constructed the building around the clock and the 231-meter (@700ft) high “palace” was completed in just three years. Jump to Warsaw’s city page for more touring and restaurant info.
Directions to Saski Gardens
The central north-south tram line runs along Marszaekowska Street, with a stop at the west entrance to Saski Gardens. The Ratusz Metro stop lets out at the corner of General Andersa and Solidarnosci Streets.
