Finally, a guide to Warsaw as we like it best – in all its green glory! The guide is available in our bookstore →
„Green Warsaw” is an alternative guide to the inhabitants-friendly and vibrant capital full of greenery. The author and a city roaming master, Agnieszka Kowalska, takes us on a journey through the green corners of the city. She strolls through the parks, wanders along the lush, green Vistula river banks, visits some of the allotment gardeners and peeks in the capital’s balconies. Her latest publication is, as always, subjective as Agnieszka leads us through her favourite places in Warsaw. She also presents artistic and architectural projects, as well as residents’ activities that enrich local, urban biodiversity.
Here's what the author says about her book: This book promotes city roaming. I want it to encourage you to seek out green gems, take a deep breath and find solace within this concrete, fast-paced city. The topic of greenery in Warsaw is very broad and could fill several books: parks, forests, swamps, allotment gardens, river, balconies, hundreds of specific nooks and crannies. Finally, the animals, plants and people that make up this green urban landscape. Warsaw is a city that can be almost entirely traversed while surrounded by greenery. Let’s make the most of it!
