When ice cream trucks spring up around every corner, lemonade tastes like salvation and the weather forecasts agree that we’re in paradise, that’s when travel season is in bloom. Since Poland is not a seaside heaven like Spain, it’s not your typical go-to travel destination for summer. It’s high time we changed that because summer in Poland tastes like a dream, and leaves you struck like a good shot of vodka! While there are plenty of places worth visiting, starting with the capital city – Warsaw – seems like a good idea! I’ve been living in Warsaw for quite a time, and I need to admit that summer in Warsaw is entertaining, interesting, and packed up with activities! Let’s kick off the summer… in the Warsovian style!
Money may not buy happiness, but it can certainly get you a plane ticket or two and that’s close enough. If I had infinite resources, I would probably be on the road most of the time. This is the reason why I love budget travel – it allows me to travel more… without ruining my finances completely! Mastering the art of accessible travel is not easy itself, but budget travel in a wheelchair poses even more challenges.
Luckily, I have years of travel experience on my side, and by now I know quite a few places, which are both wheelchair and wallet-friendly. Some of them are perfectly accessible, while others are acceptably accessible. Unfortunately, accessibility is yet to become the standard everywhere, but accessible travel on a budget is definitely not just a fantasy – it is within your reach! Below you can find 5 wallet and wheelchair friendly places for your next travel adventure!
In the heart of Europe, where forests are lavishly green, lakes sing of old water nymphs and city walls whisper tales of the past, there’ s beautiful country of Poland. Mountains guard the South, while the Baltic Sea guards the north of the country. Numerous lakes and hills scattered across the entire Poland allure with the promise of wonderful weekend adventures. In numerous Polish cities, history lives in every corner. Medieval squares, modern buildings, baroque palaces, gloomy castles – you can find it all in Poland! While exploring the entire country in 7 days is hardly possible, you can easily have your taste of Poland in a week and savor everything it has to offer! Let’s start with basic questions… where to go, what to know, how to survive? More about it below!
Once upon a time, in the times when legends were very alive, the mermaid told people “here you will build a marvelous city” and indeed, they did. The capital city of Poland is vibrant and modern and it has mastered the art of reinvention. It rose up from ashes like a phoenix and learned to combine modernity with history. Tall skyscrapers and old buildings, the few which survived the war, stand proudly next to each other. In Warsaw, you can learn a lot about reinvention and enjoy yourself like there is no tomorrow. Below we will get to know Warsaw inside out (touristically!)…

Mirror, mirror on the wall – what’s the best place of them all? Where to eat in Warsaw? Poland’s capital city might not be the largest European metropolis, but it’s vibrant and abundant in restaurants and cafés, and quite a lot are accessible. Anywhere you go, there’s a food heaven waiting for you. Since I’ve been living in Warsaw for years, I’ve eaten in many places. Cooking is definitely one of the things I truly enjoy, but from time to time it’s good to change something. As they say: variety’s a spice of life. There are lots of wonderful dining places in Warsaw, but the degree of their accessibility varies. Since I have Blumil, my all-terrain wheelchair, accessing less accessible places is not a problem, but I decided not to mention them here. Accessibility’s never out of style. Below you can read about my top 8 places to visit if you want to eat out in Warsaw!
