There’s a saying that people have a separate stomach for dessert. Whatever the case, one should always leave room for one of Warsaw’s typical sweet treats.
Several years ago, Warsaw lived to see the birth of yet another sweet symbol – the zygmuntówka. It was named after one of the city’s principal monuments, the King Zygmunt Column, and won a contest for the official Warsaw dessert. An almond, luscious cake, it is adorned with meringue and filled with chocolate mousse, cranberry jam and whipped cream.
