A British daily made the rankings of the coolest neighborhoods in Europe. In the first place was Järntorget and Långgatorna from Gothenburg, Sweden, followed by University Quarter in Brussels, Belgium, and El Cabanyal, Spanish Valencia.
Warsaw's Powiśle was in sixth place.
The Guardian describes the neighborhood as follows: “The Powiśle district’s main boulevard on the left bank of the Vistula River was once the preserve of dodgy bikers and lonely fishermen. Thanks to Poland’s economic boom it now resembles a carnival every summer.”
Further, the authors write about the fact that it should be forgotten that Warsaw is gray and cold because in the best part of the year it really is green and hot.
According to the authors, Powiśle has interesting gastronomy. They also mention that Warsaw is one of the world’s top vegan-friendly cities.
