Warsaw is one of the coolest capitals in 2017, Mamaison reported on their official brand blog, citing a few mainstream publications. We knew that the Polish capital was cool long before the Western media had its epiphany.
Here’s Why Warsaw in Poland Is the 2017 Capital of Cool
We start with culture: as a response to a US phenomenon started 6 years ago by violinist Dale Henderson, Warsaw is now also a stage for classical music, with enthusiasts coming to the city to deliver an unparalleled cultural experience to everyday commuters. The program, suggestively titled “Bach in the Subways,” sees flutist Antonina Styczeń, soprano Aleksandra Klimczak, and other talents joining efforts to deliver weekend of half-hour and hour-long concerts in several venues across Warsaw in the following weeks. The concert series, which will also expand to open-air sites, cafes, and shopping centers, coincides with the 332nd anniversary of the composer’s birth – Radio Poland reports.
The Warsaw Spire has recently won the best business and office development award during the MIPIM property fair in Cannes – another proof that the Polish capital is on the right track to becoming the capital of cool in 2017. The Warsaw Spire is a Neomodern office building complex designed by pros from Jaspers-Eyers Architects and completed in 2016. It raises 220 meters high at Plac Europejski, and ranks as the second tallest building in the country.
“The project’s location is one of the most dynamically developing parts of capital, with modern office buildings and prestigious residential projects, as well as excellent transport, including trams, buses and a second metro line under construction,” the developers report.
Another cool fact: next time you visit the National Museum in Warsaw you will enjoy interactive content delivered by Imagineear through its MediaPacker™ devices. This is a modern tool for visitors to explore a landmark, which is cost effective for local authorities.
And, in recent reports, Warsaw could get a new, “mega” airport. The Polish government approved plans for a new transport hub to open in 2027. The new airport will probably occupy a plot between Warsaw and the central city of Lodz, and could welcome about 50 million passengers a year, or more. That is four times the number of passengers Warsaw’s main airport served last year, AFP reports. The airport could also become an air cargo hub for China’s One Belt, One Road initiative.
