WARSAWESOME: YOUR WARSAW WEEKEND GUIDE (May 11-13)

I have a self-imposed rule that I can’t suggest more than 10 events in each weekend guide. I think this kind of handpicking of events makes the guide more interesting… This week, however, I kinda had to cheat and group events.
I’m 100% sure you’ll find at least one event that interests you. I bet it! Prove me wrong 😉 And comment on the FB post 🙂

1) Three Interesting Events about Bikes and Biking
