Travel: A Warsaw Guide for Minimalists

 Every City has its corners for minimal lovers, if you put enough efforts in searching for them. Although this is not the right word. I have visited Warsaw with a semi-local yet everything-knowing polish Girl and another friend of mine and we literally had the best time ever. We strolled the city for four days, ate incredibly much on a low budget and I made my first eurodance experience and petted around 10 different dogs in only four days. But this is a different story, we now want to focus on contemporary architecture and cool spots in Warsaw that you should not miss, if you ever have the chance to visit the polish capital city. I hope this short Warsaw city guide helps you to experience the most of the city:

The Jewish Museum, Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich, POLIN

The Museum faces the memorial commemorating the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943. The winner of the architectural competition was Rainer Mahlamäki, of the architectural studio 'Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Oy in Helsinki, whose design was chosen from 100 submissions to the international architectural competition. The Polish firm Kuryłowicz & Associates was responsible for construction. The building's minimalist exterior is clad with glass fins and copper mesh. Silk screened on the glass is the word Polin, in Latin and Hebrew letters. Entry: 3€
