Wintry Warsaw Lit Up

Winter has finally arrived in Warsaw with a snow fall on Monday coating the City white and nicely setting off the Christmas decorations which light up the centre while the Poles prepare for their traditional Christmas celebrations.

The Saxon Gardens (Ogród Saski) were brightened up at night with their winter coating of snow while the soldiers guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (Grób Nieznanego Żołnierza) at Pilsudski Square (Plac Piłsudskiego) were wearing their winter headgear and were probably only too glad to be close to the eternal flame.

Warsaw’s Christmas decorations stretch from the Old Town (Stare Miasto) to Three Cross Square (Plac Trzech Krzyży). The tourist wishing to enjoy the sights has a wide selection of restaurants and pubs along the route, particularly on Ulica Nowy Świat (New World Street).
