This post about Warsaw is a little late, because we just posting other in front, but today it finally came out !Eba!.

We went there in early November 2015, aindaestávamos when living in Dublin, today already live in Barcelona.


We took advantage of the cheap Ryanair flights out of the capital of Ireland, headed 4 days and 3 nights to Warsaw and Krakow (the post of Krakow is already written), Poland is far from the major European tourist centers, but recently it has attracted much public to visit the country, because there is all much cheaper than the rest of Europe.

The main places that has attracted visitors are Warsaw, Krakow for being a city with lots of culture and history, because from there and can go to the concentration camp (Aushwitz) that many people find it in Germany, but not, it is in Poland, another highly visited town is Zakopane it is a very cheap ski resort and attracts people from all over Europe.

We rented an apartment in Warsaw by Airbnb near the central station city train (central Warsaw) It is a good place to stay, because it's near the main tourist attractions and all you can do on foot. It is also easy to go from the airport to there, It has buses that make this route, and it's quite cheap.
