Our home

My apartment is very pleasant. Altogether it has a main room, and one bedroom and another small room with a mezzanine bed, a kitchen, a bathroom and a hall. It has two small balconies. It's on the fourth floor and only one window faces a neighbor; all the others face the park and so it's quite private. It has an old world atmosphere and it's very warm in winter when the central heating is switched on. The kitchen has a gas stove and an electric oven. The bathroom is small and practical. The washing dries overnight because of the efficient heating system. Double glazing keeps out the cold and the noise during the winter. Everyone who visits says that the apartment has a great atmosphere.

Who we are

  1. I'm Australian and I have lived in Warsaw for 14 years (12years in this apartment). Being an artist, I have enjoyed a vibrant and interesting time in this city as it has reinvented itself after communism. Because of family reasons I need to spend more time back home so I'm looking to swap with someone for up to 6 months.
    There is also a cat involved. His name is Minek and if you have the same problem as I do, I would be so happy to take care of your pets, knowing that mine would be in good hands....
    Eventually I hope to bring him with me to Australia and may even do so at this time.
    Wonderful people here and I know you would have a very good time. I can give you plenty of guidance!!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Warsaw is an city which was almost completely destroyed. This a very old apartment on the other side if the Vistula river from the City center and the Old Town (Stare Miasto); just a few tramstops or a 25 minute walk partly through a beautiful park and over the bridge. Walking is a big part of my life in Warsaw which includes walking up to the fourth floor ( no lift I'm afraid). Praga was not a popular part of the city but becoming ever more so as it is the hub of artists and some well known art centers i.e. Koneser; Fabryka Trzciny; Minski 25 (Soho). There are some pretty cool bars very nearby which are frequented by visitors from everywhere in Europe and beyond. As I said, everything is old, the floors creak; the doors squeak; the ceilings are high. Plenty of light (less in winter I suppose) and great view towards a park and the city. Plenty of small shops' downstairs' to replenish the basics, major shopping centers as close as a five minute walk. A tram will take you near the Wielke Teatr (the opera) and the Opera Kameralna (the chamber opera) in less than 15 minutes although not a lot happening around Christmas time. Public transport is wonderful in Warsaw and I love the website 'jakdojade.pl' which will tell you what bus,tram or Metro will get you there. The point is that Warsaw is a great city with lots to do and see, as much night life as you can handle, and it's right in the middle of Europe (five and half hours by train to Berlin and not expensive).
