Well, Warsaw is kicking off 2015 with some truly dreadful weather – cloudy, blustery and rainy.

The wind is blowing so violently that I think the Turkish lodos has arrived here just like for my friends back in Istanbul.

A few days ago, before this fowl weather arrived, I took a stroll to the nearby Krasiński Park (Ogród Krasińskich), home to Krasiński Palace (Pałac Krasińskich) and a wonderful park. Snow still covered the frozen ground so I wanted to take some photos before it all melted. I arrived about mid-afternoon just as the sun was setting and casting a cheery, golden glow throughout the park.
Though I had planned on arriving earlier so the snow wouldn’t look so gray in my photos, I’m still rather pleased with these photos.

The ducks and “flying ponies” didn’t seem to mind me or the snow either.

Happy New Year!

Pretty photos. Glad to see Warsaw looks good in winter too. (May has been my favourite time to visit, so far)

Hi Sophie! Yes, May is a wonderful time to visit Warsaw because all the flowers are blooming and the weather is pretty decent. The months July to October are good times to visit too. :-)
