Biking around Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport
Warsaw Travel Blog› entry 7 of 19 › view all entries
There is lots of free space to bike near the airport that's why am biking around this facility many times.
Warsaw airport (opened in 1934) consists of two passangers terminals - Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. And there is also always very crowded "Etiuda" terminal. Etiuda is my favourite one, because it's for so-called "low cost carries" hehehe. There are also one more place that I loke to visit sometimes, it's a observation deck. Normal ticket costs 4 PLN, but am a local person so I know where to bike to find a free observation deck, also pretty good, heheh...
From the airport it's pretty close to the Plac Szwedzki (Sweden Square) in Janki and the water area. But I didn't reach Janki this time, because in Raszyn I just turn left to Dawidy village and was biking through the Stawy Raszyńskie reservue to the Puławska street and Kabaty forest.
Long road leads to the Puławska street. I crossed it quiclky to enter the Kabaty Forest as quicly as possilbe. This part of my ride was pretty nice, I didn't need to mind about cars that were passing me in a fleet way :) I had to mind about the different bikers that were passing me also qiuckly, but this was not a "dangerous problem". Being in Kabaty I biked to Powsin to rest and eat something. This time I bought krokiety (croquettes). Croquettes were made from thin pancake stuffed with spinach and fried in a pan. Frankly I was hungry so it tasted me very much.
From the airport to the city center you will drive down the Żwirki Wigury street. I will risk to say it is one of our most beautifil streets in Warsaw. On the left and right and in the middle if it the are the number of lindens. By the way i think it's good to know that Mr Żwirko and Mr Wigura were well-known aviators. At the end of the street stands an aviator monument (Pomnik Lotników) - very easy to notice it. The monument was designed in 1923 and dedicated to all polish military aviators who took part in the First World War http://www.
There is also Grójecka street on the left hand side of the airport area with its monuments. The street is overcrowded with cars, trams, buses and aeroplanes and sometimes helicopter above.
