The place is beautifull by its architecture and the history of it. It is a must to climb the clock tower to see and hear bells singing, but you need to make an appointment before. I also recommend the Art Museum inside the Culture Palace...More

There are a series of museums inside the Palace of Culture. Unless you want to spend the whole day there, go for individual tickets. There are some great museums but a risk of overdosing. Well worth a day or two here.

One night in Warsaw? (6 Replies)
Hello, I will be traveling from Krakow to Berlin this coming January and I am wondering if anyone could help me decide weather or not to stay the night in Warsaw, or go directly to Berlin. We would arrive by train no earlier than 6:30pm and leave at 5:55am the next morning. I am a Marriott employee, so I can stay cheaply at their hotel right next to the train station and the Palace of Culture. We'd want to see the Palace and snap some cool photos of it at night, and ideally see some of the...More

Well, I never know what to say to people who want to do their sightseeing at such a speed that there is hardly time to see anything. Anyway, it is doable as both the Palace of Culture and remains of the Warsaw Ghetto are within easy walking distance from Marriott hotel, except that with the Ghetto you need to know where you are going. I believe Marriott hotel beds in Warsaw as just as nice to wake up on as those in Berlin, so you may as well break up your journey and stay those few hours...More

Question 1 for Sofia (3 Replies)
Hi All: We are 60 days out from our visit to Sofia and other parts of Bulgaria, and I have some questions. I'll post them separately as that seems logical. And I thank you in advance for your answers. We (group of 7 seniors) will take the train from Sofia to Varna. I think we qualify as a "group", and it seems to make the most sense getting the tickets when we are in Sofia. Besides the Central Station, I'm seeing a ticket office listing for the Transport Service Centre located in...More

Hi, Answers one by one: The working time of the ticket office at NDK is: between Monday and Friday 07:30 to 18:30 Saturday 08:00 to 13:45. Sunday and national holidays are days off. Ticket information about internal lines - +359 2 865 91 08 and +359 2 865 84 02 It's located in the central underpass, quite close to the big round-shaped fountains - just opposite the entrance to the metro station. From what I read I guess you'll arrive by plane, have a walk around the city and you'd...More
Midline Bus Drop Off/Palace of Culture (6 Replies)
Hi, We have booked the bus from Modlin Airport that stops at the Palace of Culture. We are staying at the Ibis Warzsawa, Stare Miasto and it looks like it’s about 2.5 miles from the Palace. What would be the best way to get to the hotel, we could walk but not ideal - is there a tram we could jump on? Thanks in advance

Apologies re the title, it should have read Modlin - damn autocorrect
