Whimsical Warsaw: Experiencing both past and present

January 21, 2014

While we spend the next few days settling into our new apartment here in San Francisco, we hope you enjoy a series of posts about Warsaw, Poland, a European city full of history and spirit. First we are sharing some unique and memorable Warsaw experiences from vintage to modern.

Fotoplastikon

A stereoscopic theater that was established in 1905, this gem transported us back decades with memories of Warsaw captured in pictures. Find your way there for a relaxed experience complete with jazz playing in the background.

Neon Museum

The museum presented us with restored neon signs from the cold war era in Poland. Neon signs were a medium for designers to enliven the socialist architecture that was imposed upon Warsaw post war, and to create something unique and modern. It was amazing to see these fantastic vintage designs up close and personal, as you usually wouldn’t, complete with electric buzz. Be sure to wander the grounds of this ex-factory for some exterior installations and some swanky cafes.

University of Warsaw Library

If you are looking for some green space to wander and to enjoy the weather, look no further than the rooftop gardens of the university. The massive green roof invites wandering in the lush architectural topography with lovely panoramic city and river views.
