30 Fun Things To Do In Warsaw in Spring and Summer 2018 (most are FREE!)
Ah, sweet spring, you’ve arrived! Warsaw gains so much energy when the warmer months arrive. There are endless things to do in Warsaw in spring (and summer).
Everybody wants to be a Varsovian in Spring.
From April to August we can finally expect some warm days, so take out your calendar and prepare yourself to take some notes (or you can just bookmark this article 😉 ). Get the most out of your Varsovian warm season, it won’t last long 🙂
This list starts with the “classic” events, which happen every year in Warsaw (from April to September) and follows with a calendar of 2018 events that we are really looking forward to.
Experience the Vistula, one of the most vibrant rivers in Europe
Parties, bars, walking routes, bike paths, sandy beaches, wildlife and water sports (find out more things to do in Warsawat number #30). There are two sides of the river, one is wild and untamed (the Praga side) and the other is cemented (the Centrum side) but super cool nonetheless, with great parties and floating bars. Which one will be your favorite side?
Go for a bike ride along the “Sunny Route”
A great bike path is the “Sunny Route”. It runs along the right bank of the Vistula River. It’s quite unique because you will be immersed in wild nature even if in the middle of the city. Over 8 km forest and beaches to enjoy on your Veturilo bike! You can access the bike path from the “Most Łazienkowskiego” (Łazienkowski Bridge), at the Rondo Waszyngtona (Waszyngtona Roundabout).
We made a map with our suggestions for the route. Check it out:
17.04 – BEER. Home Brewing Workshop and Tasting in Craft Brewery (in English)
Learn how to get started brewing your own beer and, more importantly, sample several delicious craft beer directly from the beer tank. If you had to buy all the beer you’ll drink in a normal shop you’d spend a fortune, but if you go to the source, beer is cheaper.
This is a convention that centers around comics, movies, tv, cosplay & costumes, gaming, and overall entertainment. It is a huge event where you can meet several famous characters from your fav movies and series.
In the past edition, for example, there were Game of Thrones’ characters like Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (the Mountain), Carice van Houten (Lady Melisandre), Alfie Allen (Theon Greyjoy), and Walter Charles Dance ( Lord Tywin Lannister). But there will be more than “just” Game of Thrones stars.
The Instrument Fair is an exhibition of acoustic instruments, combined with concerts, workshops, showcases, theatre, spontaneous music-making and an extensive program for children. We present various musical forms and trends, both traditional instruments and innovative ones. In 2017 we hosted more than 120 instrument-makers from 10 European countries.
A huge techno party in an electric power research center?
Imagine thousand people dancing right next to a lightning generator able to produce electrical discharges of 5 MV. That is certainly going to produce an electric atmosphere. Is this just another of the institute’s experiments?
On this special night over 200 museums and institutions will be open at night. It is a great occasion to visit familiar places under a different light or unusual quirky institutions that you’d never visit otherwise. The choice is yours, but the popular institutions will be incredibly busy 😉 .
You probably read about the event in May. Well, this one will be different.
On June 22nd and 23rd, 2018 in the Modlin Fortress (The Citadel of Modlin Fortress) near Warsaw, we will see a massive festival with three stages: MAIN, RAVE, and UNDERGROUND in a completely new, unique scenery.
The whole event will be merging two concepts: Music & Art.
INSTYTUT FESTIVAL is a festival of electronic music, an energy bomb and a whole lot of beautiful emotions, but most of all- You! We are waiting for you in Modlin!
Wianki Nad Wisłą is a mass cultural event involving pagan traditions, music, and fireworks. The festival was originally a pagan religious event, from which some elements remained e.g. fortune-telling, flower compositions, and wreaths.
