Poland Day Fourteen: Warsaw. A Meandering Morning Walk To The Vistula River.
I wasn’t exactly sure where I was going, like I often do on my travels, I just wanted to get acquainted with the city. I had a general ideal where the Vistula River was and decided to walk in that direction.
So I meandered the busy morning streets, blending in with the many commuters heading to work and school, some stopping for a bite to eat at the many small pastry and breakfast sandwich shops along the way.
The neighborhood was next to a park neat the river and I enjoyed strolling under the ancient trees. Most of the historic and other buildings in Warsaw were destroyed by the Germans in World War II. Thankfully, it seems, they let many of the parks alone.
I found my way to the Vistula River and walked up a bridge to get a view. It was good to see this river again, now a few hundred miles north of where I last saw it flowing through the middle of Krakow. Here is a link to some more photographs from my walk to the river. https://keepyoureyespeeled.net/poland-photographs-april-2017/nggallery/poland-april-2017/Poland-Day-Fourteen-Warsaw-morning-walk-April-21-2017
I arrived at the hotel, located near the central train station in Warsaw, with just enough time to shower and enjoy a quick breakfast with my sister and niece before we set out on a day long walking tour of the main sites of the city.

“A city isn’t so unlike a person. They both have the marks to show they have many stories to tell. They see many faces. They tear things down and make new again.” ― Rasmenia Massoud
