Nowy Swiat, Warsaw
Concierge.com's insider take:
Nowy Swiat, which translates to "New World," is Warsaw's liveliest thoroughfare and connects the Royal Castle to Wilanow Palace (www.wilanow-palac.art.pl/index_en.php). Wide pavements are awash with courting couples ambling from bar to bar, along with people strolling around and scoping out the 19th-century architecture, chic boutiques, lazy cafés, and bustling restaurants, such as Sense. Check out the gardens surrounding the beautiful Wilanow Palace, and stop inside to browse through the exhibits—highlights include a collection of Polish portraiture dating from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
