Running in Warsaw
Running in Warsaw was a real surprise to start with. When getting up on a February morning, the sun was shining and the sky was clear. Even though I’ve been to Warsaw several times, the weather has never been so good. That said, the run was accordingly enjoyable and truly amazing. Both, in perspective of sightseeing running and running in nature.
Warsaw has something like notoriously bad weather, but surprisingly, I was lucky when it comes to running in Warsaw.

When leaving InterContinental Warsaw, the sun was shining and the temperature, while cold, was totally fine for running!
That’s definitely the weather I like for running!
Enjoying the skyline of Warsaw
Upon leaving the hotel, I instantly enjoyed beautiful views of the Palace of Culture and Science, one of the most impressive buildings in Warsaw.
After running a few hundred meters, I was also able to get lovely views of the skyline, which is a stark contrast to the historic Palace of Culture and Science.
As I decided to run to the Vistula, the river passing through Warsaw, I followed one of the larger streets, where I also spotted some impressive buildings.
I also caught a glimpse of Nowy Swiat, the main shopping street in the city center of Warsaw.
Running along the promenade
The bridge which leads you to the National Stadium in Warsaw looks not only impressive from afar, but also when getting closer.
Interestingly, the bridge does not only cross the river, but also elevates the road for at least one kilometer.
Below, you can see parts of a park, which I strolled through later on. After taking some pictures of the National Stadium, which comes with quite a nice architecture, I ran along the promenade for a few hundred meters, which was quite enjoyable.
As there are pathways right next to the river, the area is very nice for running.
Promenading through Warsaw’s city center
At some point, I decided to run in the large park, which connects the Vistula with the city center. The park is a rather difficult name, so I’ll leave you with the map to figure out where the park is located.
The park itself is rather nice with a lot of greenery and also some monuments. After running in the park for one or two kilometers, I found myself close to the ultra-long bridge again.
From there on, I decided to turn right and run along Nowy Swiat to get into the city center.
After seeing several interesting buildings, I had the pleasure to enjoy the skyline for a last time.
The perfect finish of an amazing run through Warsaw!
