The preparation for proposing is a crucial issue. You should think about the place, time, atmosphere. Proposing during trip is one of an idea. Choosing the destination which is not so romantic at first glance can help you surprising your love. Warsaw is kind of places like this. In the city you will find unique spots that create the best scenery for saying yes. We chose for you top 5 places.
Łazienki Królewskie Park
In the 18th century it used to be a countryside residence of Polish king Stanisław August Poniatowski, where he not only used to work, but also rest and invite his lovers. That’s why it’s full of romantic alleys, bridges and temples and looks lovely all the year round.
Also, from May till September you may rent a gondola sailing in the pond in front of the Palace on the Island, including a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of champagne. You can make your engagement royal!

St. Anna Church Viewing Platform
Located just right beside the Royal Castle and the Sigismund’s Column the bell tower of St. Anna Church offers a lovely view over the Old Town and the Vistula River. It’s especially recommended in good weather and early evening hours, when the city lights are on.
If the weather conditions get worse you may choose a viewing platform of the Museum of Warsaw. The platform is on the top floor of the museum, inside the building so you’ll be protected from rain or wind. Also it’s less popular and crowded than St. Anna Church viewing platform which means it may provide you more privacy if needed.

Warsaw University Library Roof Garden
An oasis of a green and colorful plants located on the roof of modern and awarded building of the Warsaw University Library is one of the largest roof gardens in Europe. At the same time it offers splendid views over the city centre and the Vistula river. Go there if you seek for a mixture of various experiences. You can combine it with a romantic walk along the river bank.
The gardens are open daily from 1st April till 31st October from 8 am till 6 pm (May-September: from 8 am till 8 pm). Admission free.
Dinner on the terrace of Ujazdowski Castle
Love goes through stomach, so if you’d like to follow this ancient rule and combine delicious food with romantic scenery, we’ve got a great recommendation for you. On the back of Ujazdowski Castle there is located a restaurant called Qchnia Artystyczna. It offers not only tasty food and wines but also a terrace with a splendid view over the nearby park and canal where you can enjoy romantic evening in candlelight. This proposition is for warm part of the year, however.

Zip-line on National Stadium
And in the end… Why not to choose more extreme way of declaring love – 50 m over the ground, flying with 60 km/h speed with your sweetheart in your arms? If you love a bit of adrenaline, we recommend you to use a zip-line on National Stadium (the big one visible from the Old Town, on the other bank of the Vistula river). Surprise your other half as never before!
