        Being an Erasmus student or doing internship abroad is not only about studying/working in different country and communicating with new people, but also about seizing every opportunity to have fun and spend the time you will remember.

Spending winter in Poland, hm?

         During visit to Poland, you can assume that winter time can be frustrating especially when you think of freezing toes when waiting for a bus, going to and from work/university when it is dark, or when just thinking of how long to wait for summer. What if we tell you that you can still have fun in winter ? Pepe Housing team would like to recommend you a couple of places where you can get rid of your  Erasmus routine, being homesick, or bad mood.

Recall your first sledding when you were a child either with your parent, relative, sibling, or a good friend. Have you got some goosebumps? Do you have a feeling of nostalgy? That’s what we are talking about!

Here are some recommendations from Pepe Housing team where you can have real winter fun in cities of Poland.

Warsaw

          Warsaw’s Old Town in winter is breathtaking, especially in Christmas time. Decorated Christmas tree, colorful lights on old buildings, and live music make Old Town in Warsaw a magical place. Yet, the main point here is that Old Town Ice Rink is open and you should get ready to spin around.

We get the feeling that there should be some folks who would love to go skiing or snowboarding. Then, Zakopane ski resort  is a perfect place for you. During holidays in Poland the accommodation near the resort may seem expensive, but some days after the Polish celebrations, the prices are reasonable again 🙂

If you do not feel like going sledding, ice-skating, skiing, or  snowboarding -nobody canceled an old idea of comforting yourself with a delicious hot drink and a good book. Even though your room/flat for Erasmus semester looks perfect, there are a bunch of coffee places if you still want to escape from routine and find your ideal place to chill out.
