Vistula in a Nutshell
What is the best place to meet up with your friends on hot, summer days? First thing that comes to your mind is “Let’s meet by the Vistula River”. Every day, especially during the weekend (as long as it is not raining), crowds of people are gathering there. Picnic, nice walk, “innocent” meeting with friends or parties until dawn. The fad for “Vistula” has been there for a few seasons now. It all started from BarKa and Cud nad Wisłą, after that came next releases and initiatives. Since the II metro line opened, the space along the Vistula River began to flourish, attracting original bars and thousands of people.
Living in Powiśle, we usually end up near the Mermaid Statue. I must admit that while preparing this post I was positively surprised by the speed of changes happening by the Vistula River, mainly by the number of new places opened there. Today though, we will focus only on the left side of it, from Świętokrzyski to Łazienkowski Bridge. This “only” contains around 20 places. Some of them became pretty famous by now.
So lets start!
Munchies – Barka Wynurzenie
Atelie Amaro in the past, now Barge Wynurzenie. Guys from Munchies surprise us with the combination of street and slow food. We can choose from beef cheeks, spatula pork, fish with delicious fries and original salads.
