A sporty New Year in Warsaw
The fifth New Year’s Run
Who said you must spend the New Year in Warsaw standing in the open, or sitting in your couch? You can spend this day actively, taking part in the forthcoming fifth edition of the New Year’s Run. Despite the apparent fatigue, many people decide to jog through the alleys of Skaryszewski Park, adhering to the principle that our behaviour on New Year’s day will reflect how we act for the rest of the year.
Ice ring in the Old Town Square
In the 2018/2019 season, it was planned that as many as 16 ice-rings will be opened up across the capital – the ones that are paid and free. One of the free rings is currently located in the Old Town Square; it was opened on 8th December. You can visit the ice ring during any day of the week, but if you want to experience winter in its full glory, New Year’s Day will be perfect for some ice-skating with friends or family. Since New Year’s Eve tends to be full of musical and party experiences (remedy for the spirit), on January 1st it’s worth to do something related to physical activity (remedy for the body).
The beautifully decorated Old Town Square also encourages causal evening strolls around the embellished district. The famous Christmas market is still held there, therefore everything is lit up, the scent of splendid food and mulled wine is travelling around, everyone is still brimming with Christmas spirit. There’s no better place to chill during these cold winter evenings! Indeed, such markets are closely associated with Christmas, but the stalls with food and handcrafts will be standing firmly by the Old Town Market Square at least until 6th January.
