Easter in Warsaw
Easter time in Poland coincides with the spring period in which nature comes to life from its long winter sleep. Visit Warsaw at this time and learn about Easter customs that are still practised and see how the city combines folk traditions with modernity. At specially organised fairs you can taste Easter delicacies and buy original souvenirs. Festivals of classical and folk music provide unforgettable experiences. And if it’s not your thing, you can feast your eyes on the beauty of nature awakening in Warsaw’s parks, which you can get to on one of the thousands of the city’s Veturilo rental bikes.

Celebrate Easter from early morning or even at night
The celebrations, most often in families, begin with breakfast, wishes and the sharing of eggs. For the next two days, people sit at the table and enjoy traditional Easter dishes: sour rye soup, white borscht, juniper smoked ham, white hot sausage, roasted meat, pates and baked goods: sponge cakes, mazurkas and cheesecakes.

Join music lovers from around the world to see where the composer drew his inspiration and what influence his music had on creators in other eras. The program of the festival, which takes place before Easter, features outstanding performers and renowned ensembles and orchestras.
