Warsaw from above

I’m writing this at a window some hundred meters above the streets of Warsaw, the capital of Poland. Staying at the five-star hotel InterContinental Warsaw which offers a good view of the city. Even though it’s only the 55th tallest building in Europe, it’s the tallest hotel in Poland and the third tallest in Europe.

At the 44th floor we found the highest indoor pool in Europe with large windows and a spectacular view. It’s not the pool of Park Hyatt in Tokyo, but it will suffice. Life is good.
