  Old Town Apartment For Rent in Warsaw





Beginning 21 July, my sweet apartment in Warsaw's Old Town will be available for short-term guests. It is a one-room apartment (one room, plus kitchen and bathroom), with sleeping capacity of two to three. It is on Piekarska street, just near the Kiliński monument.


This is my building, which is next to the pink convent and one block or so from the Old Town Square. My apartment is on the first (second, US) floor. It is in the cobbled pedestrian zone, within the UNESCO World Heritage site of Warsaw's Old Town. For the most part, only people and horses and buggies go by the kitchen window, and the main room looks out onto the courtyard (one of the nicest in Warsaw!) and convent. You can see St. Martin's and St. John's Cathedral from the window. Other photos and information available upon request. 



We'd like to have people stay there for multiple nights, ideally, and semester or academic-year stays are also possible. My dear friend and his fiancée will be taking care of the apartment for me and will be available to guests.


There are grocery shops and other amenities just downstairs and around the corner, as well of course all the restaurants, cafes and cultural life - including the castle - of Old Town. To visit Warsaw's downtown while staying here, you need no car. It is for example about a 10-15 minute walk, or a couple of bus stops, from the University of Warsaw.


It is a wonderful place to stay in Warsaw, with a special atmosphere that I miss very much.

 Learning Polish on the internet

Learning Polish on the internet


Please read info about Libratus schools and Polish government proposals posted on the FAQ page.


Below there is some info about learning Polish with help of internet as recommended by Readers or  submitted to the Editor by different educational outfits.




Reader recommended free podcasts and paid subscriptions with Piotr.

Seems great for Polish-Americans, that is people who know the language somewhat,

understand more, speak less and would like to take it to the next level.

In small daily chunks, regular readings etc.
