WARSAWESOME: YOUR WARSAW WEEKEND GUIDE (August 04-05)
With such intense heat, you really can’t stay at home. Can you?
Before answering, just check out this week’s events 🙂 there is some good stuff!
1) Masa Powstańcza: a bike ride for the Warsaw Uprising
The Warsaw Uprising Museum in cooperation with the Warsaw Critical Mass is organizing the 12th Uprising Mass.
This year, you will bike the route of Kazimierz Leski “Bradla” and the battalions “Miłosz” and “Ruczaj”.
When: Saturday 4 from 14:30 (registration) and from 17:00 (bike ride)
Where: Freedom Park (Warsaw Uprising Museum)
2) Creative writing with Loesje: Tango on 16 square meters
Loesje workshops involve writing short texts during a creative group process. Participants can offer topics to write about, but this time our source of inspiration is the new exhibition, “Tango on 16 square meters.” We will discuss issues such as urban architecture, living spaces, past and present, personal and public, and other related topics.
Where: Plac Małachowskiego 3, Warsaw
When: Saturday 4 from 17:00 to 20:00
3) Fort Open Air #4
A new, unique place on the party map of Warsaw, a place to enjoy music, drinking beer, and conducting conversations while lying on the sunbeds around the fire.
Traditionally, the music will be gradually increasing the concentration of BPMs in your blood: from calm, downtempo, through a firm afternoon march into the land of oriental tech-house ending with a rough, fully equipped assault on the hills of industrial techno and peaks of ecstatic trance.
Where: Wał Miedzeszyński 345, Warsaw
When: Saturday 4 from 17:00 to 08:00 (next day)
Price: 25 PLN
4) Summer Street Workout Zone – open workouts for everyone.
These open classes on the Vistula are intended for beginners and intermediate students willing to sweat their way through to well-sculpted abs.
Where: Summer Recreation Zone (Under Poniatowski Bridge)
When: Saturday 4 from 12:00 to 13:00 (every Saturday till the end of August)

7) Join the Hash Run
The “Warsaw Hash House Harriers” are a group of drinkers with a running problem.
