WARSAWESOME: YOUR WARSAW WEEKEND GUIDE
JULY 3 – 5
Receive this Warsaw weekend guide in your mailbox. Every Thursday.
Warsaw is starting to organize anew its cultural and entertainment scene, so we recommend events in both the real and virtual world. If you decide to leave the house, remember to obey the rules of social distancing and put on masks where the regulations require it. Last but definitely not least, have fun and enjoy the blooming summer.
1) Feel the festival vibe – Lato na Pradze takes off
Probably the most interesting series of events this summer in Warsaw. From Wednesday to the end of the holiday, just go to Praga to remember how it was when we could still go to festivals. From Tuesday to Saturday, there is one concert a day at the Main Stage (this weekend’s performers are Włodi and Jan Serce). You can also chill in a drink bar with craft beers, a gastro area, and a relaxation area. The admission fee is 20 PLN and you can spend the whole amount at the bar.
Wednesday, Thursday – from 17:00 to 23:00
Friday – from 17:00 to 03:00
Saturday – from 13:00 to 03:00
Sunday – from 13:00 to 23:59

Celebrating the 4th of July has long gone beyond the US borders and this year Lunapark offers the most interesting Independence Day program in Warsaw.

In addition, at the Mini Market you will be able to eat burgers, deep dish pizzas straight from Detroit, and of course, chicken wings.
