Before flying to Gdansk for Heineken Open’er Festival, I had some time in Warsaw and get to see some stuff with a guide. We spent most of our time in museums. It’s not what I usually do, to go to a museum the first time I visit a city simply because I find the life outside more interesting for a first impression. A museum is always a further mean of acquintance for me, yet the comtemporary art museum was so real and the art itself was so honest that it gave me insider opinion I wanted to have about the city and everyday life.

The city itself is like a post-war museum. To see all the old and new and demolished and re-builed buildings, ghettos and monuments was really interesting for me both as an architect and as a graduate of the Austrian Highschool in İstanbul, where a huge part of German literature we were thought consisted of short stories written during and after Second World War. I already sense that this one and a half days wouldn’t be enough, Warsaw is a city, whose small streets and bars I want to explore and definitely deserves more attention.

After our visit to the museum we grabbed a quick bite, to be more spesific pasta with typical polish sausage and the prices amazed me since everything was very affordable comparing to Turkey. Then we went to a theater play that our guide booked for us. Not my usual day in a new city, yet again it was perfect for me to understand how important and ‘cool’ theater in Poland was and again even the choice of the guide for the entertainment gave me clues about the everyday life here. It was actually a part of young people’s life, to go and watch a play. It was a musical scened by students of Kurarow Theater School and even though I didn’t understand a word, I could tell how talented they were and I had a good time.

RESORT

After the play it was time to hangout at a bar, a really cool one, which has shopping carts as chairs, a bathtub as a couch and bottles as lamps. It was really busy even though it was a weekday. Cheap alcohol (compared to Turkey), cool design, nice conversation and a warm summer evening made my first impression of Warsaw really perfect.
