Jarema enshrines yet another Polish traditionâ€”kresowa, the cuisine in focus here.

BY THE WAY - RESTAURANT
By the way - Restaurant, a refreshing Italian eatery in a largely residential part of town achieves two thingsâ€”It shows that top culinary quality can be achieved so long as the interest is there to achieve it, and that wonderful restaurants do exist away from the usual tourist areas of the Main Square and Kazimierz. This place offers an inspiring interpretation of Italian; it is heavily focused on dishes made with the freshest of seafood. Indeed the owners get their produce from the fishing town of Chioggia, close to Venice. The mantra here is that authenticity must combine with top quality ingredients, that he wine list must add to the merit, and that the whole ambience must reflect true and honest hospitality. Not surprisingly, the service staff is well informed and makes one feel thoroughly welcome. By the way - Restaurant is indeed a must-have dining experience in Krakow!

IN WARSAW HOTEL WARSZAWA
When history and an inspiring vision for the future converge, great things emerge and are born. This can surely be said about the newly opened Hotel Warszawa, once the tallest building in the land when it came to be in 1934, known then as The Prudential. A symbol of the Warsaw Uprising, it withstood the onslaught of the Nazis in 1944, yet stands transformed today. Its rebirth borders on the spiritual, the reincarnation of a monument’s soul into a higher form, now as a superluxurious hotel for the world to admire. Vision and labor has melded marble, with bright chromes and warm wood, with original concrete ceilings in harmony with the new, all coming together to create a sense of unique elegance. The emphasis here is on relaxation and renewal; topnotch restaurants, a spa with treatments, a fitness centre, and a pool all make Hotel Warszawa stand taller than the rest!
