Budget Travel in Poland: Where to Go in Warsaw

Warsaw is an incredibly underrated budget-friendly destination. You can visit many sights and attractions for free or a very low admission, take unique walking tours and enjoy delicious, traditional food at excellent prices. 

The local currency in Poland is Zloty (or PLN) and $10 are worth approximately 37 PLN. With that amount of money in your pocket, you can visit a beautiful garden, eat lunch, and even savor a cup of hot chocolate.

1. Warsaw Botanic Garden

Start with a visit to the University of Warsaw Botanic Garden. For a 12 PLN entrance fee, you can explore this astonishing collection of 5,000 plant species spreading over more than 5 hectares.

Due to so many different types of trees, shrubs, and flowers, the place feels like an interesting mix of garden meets forest.

Although it's closed during winter, from April to October you can easily spend a couple of hours strolling through this magical spot in Warsaw.

Now that you're ready for a hearty lunch, head over to one of Warsaw's milk bars. These Polish diners that were founded in the 19th century offering traditional, delicious food at very low prices. 

For about 10 PLN, you can get one main course or a big bowl of soup with 1-2 side dishes. It's most likely one of the cheapest lunches you can eat in Europe, and when the food is that good and comforting, it's more than a great value for money.

If you have extra budget to indulge in the traditional Polish food, I'd also recommend booking this Warsaw food tour to explore some of the country's best delicacies.

Warsaw also has something to offer for the chocoholics.

To enjoy one of the best cups of thick, hot chocolate you'll ever have in your life, visit E. Wedel's chocolate lounge at Szpitalna 8 Street.

It offers a broad variety of hot and cold chocolates starting at only 15 PLN per cup. From classic to caramel to out of the box combinations, anyone can find a drink to relish at E. Wedel.

Another thing to love about this lounge is the overall vibe. The place itself is very elegant and beautifully decored, and the atmosphere is truly enticing.
