    Poland’s capital city to receive Michelin Guide listing

    Poland is set to become a more popular tourist destination, with the Polish Tourism Organisation and Michelin Guide signing an agreement to include Polish cities in the iconic Michelin Guide. The first cities to be included are Warsaw, Krakow and Poznan, as well as their surrounding areas.

    Warsaw is a city known for its eclectic food scene, with a variety of restaurants and cafes serving up dishes from all over the world. Local specialities include Warsaw Tripe (flaki po Warszawsku), and traditional roast duck with apples or onion soup. No matter what your taste is, you can find something delicious in Warsaw.

    The Polish Tourism Organisation’s recent partnership with the renowned Michelin Guide is set to bring a number of benefits. From the development of infrastructure and transport to the promotion of regional culinary traditions and the local food market, the alliance is expected to attract investors in the hospitality industry, increase the quality of services provided, and boost the prestige of Polish cities around the world, in turn, drawing in foreign tourists.

    “Warsaw’s dynamic culinary scene has been on full display during the pandemic, with its incredible diversity being a highlight. From iconic locations to top-notch suppliers and talented creators, Warsaw’s gastronomy offers something for everyone. Restaurateurs are committed to providing the best products, while chefs and innovators are always finding new and exciting ways to tantalize their patrons’ taste buds. Whether you’re looking for an unforgettable dining experience or simply a delicious meal, Warsaw is the place to be,”

    Barbara Tutak, the President of the Warsaw Tourism Organisation, explains. 

    “Cooperation between Warsaw and the Michelin guide has ushered in a new era of brand building for the city. The agreement is expected to raise awareness of the city’s quality tourist offerings among visitors, solidifying its reputation as the top European tourist destination of 2023. Additionally, the partnership is likely to stimulate further interest in visiting the city,”

    she adds. 

    Polish cities are gaining access to the opportunity of hosting major international culinary events, including qualifiers for the Bocuse d’Or and the Global Chefs Challenge. These events bring recognition and prestige to the country, allowing the culinary communities of Poland to showcase their unique talents on a global scale.
