This beautiful baroque castle was built in the 17th century by one of the best Polish kings: Jan III Sobieski. Not only was he a great ruler but also a loving husband. The romantic letters that he has written to his wife, Marysieńka, are famous to this day. It makes Wilanow one of the most romantic places in Warsaw.

  1. Poland in on our immediate list and vying for next year’s trip along with other contenders like Nordic and Turkey. Saving your post for the final selection. :)

  2. Strange that I don’t remember seeing any travel lbog posts about Warsaw, ever. People just ignore it in favor of places like Krakow, so good of you to feature its attractions. I like the way you had an earlier impression of it and then gave it another chance.

      1. Hi, Karolina! My husband and I planned a romantic getaway to Warsaw for a weekend, while our daughter is spending some quality time with her grandparents. Your post has been most helpful in planning out stay there. Could you also recommend some mid priced romantic restaurants in the Old town area (we’ll be staying at Ibis) where we could enjoy the local cuisine? And maybe recommend some traditional dishes, as we are not familiar with Polish food. Thank you! Greetings from Romania!

        1. Glad you enjoyed our guide! There are two restaurants with traditional Polish food in the Old Town of Warsaw that we can definitely recommend: Podwale25 and Bazyliszek. If you want to visit really romantic place, check out Stary Dom (it’s quite far from the center though). Polish cuisine is very diversified, there are so many dishes that you should try! If you are a meat lover, choose schabowy/sznycel, bigos, gołąbki, kiełbasa or kaszanka. If you prefer vegetarian food, pierogi (dumplings), knedle or rosol is a must.
          Have fun in Warsaw :).

  3. Many tips to know for every couple want to get there; the romantic bridge is a pure gem of Poland, like you said! I have never been in Poland but it’s so close to my home (Sardinia), so maybe I can make a weekend there for Christmas time, it should be amazing!
    thanks for all the tips in your post, :-D

  4. Love is in the air! I love how you decided to give this place another go, despite your original feelings. How’s being a tourist in your home country?

  5. I think this is the first time I read a blog post about Warsaw. And Its a romantic guide! Okay seeing those gardens and pathway with trees makes it truely romantic.. and its seems not too crowded unlike what others said.

  6. I am planning on visiting Poland next year as i have friends living there. I will include Warsaw on my list of cities to visit too, it looks very beautiful. I bet in summer it gets even more wonderful. I like the look of the love bridge, I haven’t seen any other bridge to have hearts built on it. I bet that’s a really good dating spot.

  7. I was confused with Warsaw of Belgium :P :)
    Romantic guides are so sweetly different. Hope to spend some beautiful moments there. Loved the setup in each of the hotels. :)

  8. Poland of me is all about heritage. It never struck me as romantic till I came across this post of yours. Now I have to plan an anniversary getaway here. :) Thanks for sharing this.

  9. The heart bridge is so cute! I’m not big on romantic things as it’s not what my boyfriend and I tend to do. But I would love to visit a chocolate store – definitely something I would be down to visit!

  10. Glad you gave it a second chance, the romantic tree lined pathways and Old Town look so picturesque. I also rather enjoy going for a walk and exploring hidden gems in cities rather than overload on too many tourist things or going out to party. Lovely guide!

  11. It is strange that a beautiful place like Warsaw hasn’t really been talked about before. I am glad that you introduced it to us that too with a romantic touch. Will save it for future reference.

  12. I spent a couple of days in Warsaw last year during winter, and there’s so many things from your list that I didn’t get to do! I would’ve loved a stop at the Chocolate Store, such a pity that I didn’t hear about it before! :)

  13. Thanks for showing the different sides of Warsaw! Looks like there’re so many amazing gems out there. Poland is on my wishlist. Hope to go there someday in my life!

  14. I like the way you choose to describe Warsaw in romantic way. Bay covered with trees from both sides in Łazienki Królewskie and Wedel Chocolate store I found as the most romantic places.

  15. I actually had a first date with my husband in Warsaw! He took me to a romantic restaurant for a dinner. It was the Akademia Restaurant and we like to go back there, not only because of our great memories with this place:) It is very nice and romantic and the food is incredible. After our romantic dinner we went on a long walk and we were talking for hours. On the first sight Warsaw is not very romantic city, but it can also be very charming:)

  16. We were in Poland for 7 days this summer and don’t have much time to visit Warsaw too. But this post is amazing and now I want to come back and visit this city with my friends.

  17. We went also to night club – and we don’t regret :D It’s fun way to enrich relationship. If someone would like to try, start at New Orleans Gentlemen’s Club – best steaks and fine champagne. Its fancy! :D

  18. We visited many places in Warsaw during our stay, a beautiful place, we fell in love with this charming atmosphere. For sightseeing I recommend the Royal Castle as someone is interested in monuments, or if you want to rest then places by the river. The Akademia restaurant is a great place, delicious food and friendly service.
