Warsaw draws big crowds with its seemingly unstoppable energy, exemplified by the city's explosive nightlife and thriving music scene.
On the 14th (Fri), contemplate the long history of Lazienki Palace (Palac Lazienkowski), admire the natural beauty at Lazienki Krolewskie w Warszawie, then get to know the fascinating history of Old Town, then get engrossed in the history at Warsaw Rising Museum, and finally take in panoramic vistas at Palace of Culture and Science.

Find out how to plan Warsaw trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Reykjavik, Iceland to Warsaw is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Reykjavik to Warsaw due to the time zone difference. In December, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to catch the train to Krakow.
