Home to Chopin and overflowing with historical significance, Warsaw is Poland’s most underrated destination. Land at Warsaw International Airport Terminal 1, pick up your Avis car rental and start exploring this fascinating city.
We make car rental easy, because we know you can’t wait to feel the freedom of the road and get the very most out of your stay. Wherever your travels take you, the keys are waiting for you to unlock the world.
From the airport, drive for 15 minutes on the DW634 to reach the city of Warsaw. After being flattened in World War II, much of Warsaw was reconstructed and as a result the city is an enthralling mix of old and new architecture.
Head to the historic Old Town first. The focal point here is Castle Square, a gorgeous area surrounded by old architecture that somehow survived the war. Stroll the cobblestoned streets and stop at a café for a cup of coffee served with traditional blueberry mazurka. When it comes to food, you can’t leave Poland without trying some pierogies (dumplings stuffed with potato, sauerkraut and ground meat). Do some shopping at Market Square, especially for souvenirs and handicrafts, and take in the Renaissance buildings.
Visiting the Warsaw Uprising Museum is a must. Here you can learn about how the Polish people tried to drive the Nazis out of Poland. Spend time at the Palace of Culture and Science, the tallest building in Poland, which was actually commissioned by Stalin himself. And visit the Chopin Museum to learn about Poland’s beloved composer.
With its quaint European towns and historical sites, exploring Poland beyond Warsaw is always a good idea.
Take route DK7/E77 from Warsaw for 50 minutes and you’ll arrive at Masovia. Visit the beautiful Zelazowa Wola park and manor house, where Chopin was born and see the baroque palace in Nieborow. Stop by Arkadia while you’re here too – one of the most beautiful gardens in Poland.
Lublin is just two hours from Warsaw on the DK17/E372. The medieval Lublin Castle is the main attraction of this quaint, lively city, thanks to its unique gothic-revival architecture. Spend time trying the local foods around Rynek – a special area of town devoted to dining and shopping. Also allow time to soak up the lively Old Square and stop by the Krakowska Gate.
Drive along the DK8 and the S8 for two hours and you’ll reach Tykocin – a small town settled on the Narew river. Wooden houses, a synagogue and a stunning baroque church are among the top sights. One of the few Jewish communities that escaped the Holocaust came from here. This captivating destination provides a glimpse of what Poland was like before the Nazi occupation. You can also visit Treblinka along the way – the second largest concentration camp after Auschwitz.
Poland is yours to discover. Just step in your Avis car hired from Warsaw International Airport Terminal 1 and drive.
