Try coffee in captivating places in Poland

“...and she knows secret ways of preparing the drink
which is black as coal, transparent as amber,
fragrant as mocha, and thick as honey...”

This quote from Pan Tadeusz, an epic poem written by one of the most outstanding poets of Polish Romanticism, Adam Mickiewicz, can be an excellent incentive to explore vibrant Polish cities, romantic towns, and other unique places that you can admire while enjoying... coffee. There are plenty of such places, so let our ideas inspire you and get to know our country with a cup of delicious coffee!

Royal coffee – the Royal Łazienki Park in Warsaw

The locals’ favourite place for Sunday strolls in Warsaw, the Łazienki is a park-and-palace complex most famous for its relaxing green areas and the magnificent Palace on the Island. It is the most beautiful park of the Polish capital, and at the same time one of Europe’s largest garden complexes. Sit down and relax in one of the charming cafés in Łazienki. While sipping good coffee, travel back in time to the reign of the last king of Poland, Stanisław August Poniatowski – a politician, reformer, philosopher as well as an eager sponsor and collector of art. The park has palaces, statues, pavilions, cafés, ponds, and even a theatre on the island. Łazienki is a perfect place to relax and admire historic monuments from Poland’s royal past. Whether you want to see the Chopin statue, take a selfie in front of the Palace on the Island, or simply enjoy the views and sounds of an authentic Polish park, Łazienki is the place.

Cafés and synagogues – the Kazimierz in Kraków

Between the Old Town and Wawel Hill lies the former Jewish district, the Kazimierz, where tourists head to enjoy traditional kosher dishes in one of the many restaurants following Jewish traditions. Synagogues and other monuments of Jewish culture, cobblestone streets, numerous galleries, antique shops, cafés, and restaurants, as well as the legendary street food called zapiekanki (French bread pizza) served in Plac Nowy, all form a mixture that you simply won’t find anywhere else. All of these elements contribute to the charming and unique atmosphere of the place. Enjoy coffee in one of the many cafés and restaurants along the Jewish Heritage Route and experience the unusual atmosphere of this UNESCO world heritage site (along with the Old Town within the old city walls, Wawel Hill, and the Stradom district).

Experience the taste of coffee deep underground – Wieliczka Salt Mine

Have you ever had coffee 125 metres underground? In Poland, not only can you enjoy invigorating coffee drinks so deep down, but also have a delicious lunch or a sumptuous feast. Try the unique dried beef tenderloin, aged underground in the original Wieliczka salt, and the excellent nalewka liqueurs, also prepared deep in the mine: raspberry with a touch of lavender, or based on the suska sechlońska prune. This is all possible in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, which together with the Bochnia Salt Mine, was entered on the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage as the Royal Salt Mines in Wieliczka and Bochnia. The Wieliczka Salt Mine is an impressive underground city with its many chambers (for example, the largest underground church at a depth of 101 meters: Chapel of St. Kinga), but not only. It is guaranteed that you will experience more than expected. You will breathe air free of dirt and allergens and discover the secrets of therapeutic salt properties – the Wieliczka Salt Mine is also a health resort!
