    The cuisine from Warmia and Mazury

    The cuisine of Warmia and Mazury combines the flavours of old Polish, German, and borderland cuisine. It is delicious, natural, simple, and full of flavour.

    Brick fortresses, but also post-German bunkers with ghosts of the past, vast forests with the smell of mushrooms and berries, and finally water – a holiday in this region is simply a must!


    Warmia and Mazury cuisine uses mainly easily accessible fish, forest products, and agricultural produce. The shape of Warmia-Mazury cuisine was strongly influenced by German, Russian and Mazovian cuisine. Fish and crayfish soup is extremely popular in Mazury.
