Holiday in Poland. Part 1

Every year on summer vacation I am in Poland. Me and kids, we run away from Istanbul's hot and humid weather. We spend our time mostly in Poznań and Warsaw, and one new place for week holiday, discovering new places and visiting old one. Kids also go to Polish Summer School in Poznań called Słodki Domek (Sweet Home) to makes polish friends and practice language.
 
Here a few observations and recommendations from my holiday and traveling in Poland
 
I always choose this hotel when I travel with kids to Warsaw to visit friends.
Family rooms are awesome: big, clean, nice design with gifts for kids. Great location. Recommended!
 
 

 Restaurant&Bookstore, great place for kids and parents. Recommended!
We love it!


3. Travel with kids comfortably?
