    The Zlote Tarasy (Golden Terraces) is in the center of Warsaw next to the Central Railway Station. The futuristic glass roof covers in interior courtyard and most closely, the food court on the top floor. Cleaning the glass takes particular skill and caution.

    Malls: Mall with style

    Atrium

    This is a shopping mall with style. Having tried a number of the shopping malls in Warsaw they seem to have very similar shops. This shopping mall is on different levels with dead ends, not the regular shape of some of the malls. It has an atrium with a fountain that performs different shapes. This mall is quieter since the opening of Golden Terraces, but it is well worth a visit because of this reason.

    Galeria Mokotow - shoppping mall: The biggest selection and the trendiest place:-)

    by gzal Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is the biggest shopping complex in Warsaw with a grocery supermarket, entertainment centre, cinema multiplex, food parlor, and shops of virtually most of the brands and product types available in Europe. US citizens also have something for them since it also has an American Bookstore:-)

    What to buy: Anything you wish but I'm usually buying clothes there.

    What to pay: In chain stores you usually pay average money but for now it looks like they are still slightly lower than in the EU but unfortunatelly higher than in the US...

    Zlote Tarasy: Shopping at Zlote Tarasy

    by Raimix Written Mar 23, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a big mall in a very centre of Warsaw. I liked the architecture of building, as it looks like bubbling water from outside. Such interior details as supporting pillars recall me Gaudi pillars in Sagrada Familia.

    What to buy: It is a mall, so you could find here almost everything you want - from food to outfit, books, toys and other things.

    What to pay: I guess, as it is in very centre of Warsaw, prices could be more up than in outskirts.

    Malls: Golden Terraces (Zlote Tarasy)

    by alancollins Updated May 29, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Warsaw has no shortage of shopping centres. The latest to open its doors on the 7th February 2007 is Golden Terraces (Zlote Tarasy). It may not be the biggest but it certainly is the stylish and it is different to the other shopping centres for a number of reasons. It is located in the city centre right next to the central railway station and is overlooked by the Palace of Culture and Science. The main entrance area is covered by a 10,500 square metre free form glass roof made up of 4,800 triangular glass panes, which must have been a design and construction nightmare to fabricate. Another difference is a number of restaurants by the main entrance where you can sit outside whilst you eat, drink and watch the world go by, a pleasant experience when the weather is warm. The shopping centre is spread over 3 floors and is similar to the others with the usual array of shops, cafes and multiplex cinema, though it does have a Hard Rock Café and a Burger King, if you fancy a change from McDonalds or KFC. It is certainly worth a visit if just to photograph the unique glass roof.

    Zlote Tarasy: Zlote Tarasy - WOW!

    Huge shopping mall with lots of stores. H&M, M&S, and Saturn just to name a few. Must see if you are going to Warsaw for a shopping weekend. Lots of cafes and huge food court. We were quite surprised to find Mountain Dew served in the food court. A great treat for any American ex-pat living somewhere they can’t get Mountain Dew. Located right next to the central train station.

    Sadyba shopping Mall: Friendly shopping mall

    by alancollins Written Apr 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Front entrance

    This is one of the out of town shopping malls in Warsaw and though it is slightly smaller than some of the other malls, it still has the usual array of nearly 100 shops, a small supermarket, food court, bowling alley and 12 screen cinema that shows a number of films in English. The food court has some slightly different restaurants selling Turkish, pizza, Chinese and there is a new ice-cream parlour. I have been to this mall numerous times during my visits to Warsaw as it situated not to far from the hotel I tend to use. Like the other shopping malls it is slightly off the beaten track but is well worth a visit.

    Malls: Golden Terrace

    It is quite new shopping centre in Warsaw. Is is huge as it has about 200 shops and restaurants inside. However, it is, in my opinion, not that nice. You may find most international shops here but the place seems to be not friendly. It is difficult to find a way - I would just say that this is a crazy shopping centre. Probably the only adventage is that it is really close to the main railway station and it is connected to it. So you may simply walk between the centre and the station.

    Arkadia

    Arkadia is one of my favourite shopping centres in Warsaw. The shops are spread over 2 floors that are built around in a circle. Besides designer label shops there a number of clothes and shoe shops that cater more for those with an eye for a bargain. There is a large hypermarket with an internet cafe and a food court. On the third floor there is a large multi-screen cinema.

    Galeria Centrum: Buy... a suit in Poland :-)

    by matcrazy1 Updated Feb 3, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    GALERIA CENTRUM LOGO
    1 more image

    Galeria Centrum is the name of Polish company which runs shopping malls all over Poland. There are three in Warsaw of which the worst desinged one (in my opinion) is the most conveniently located, right in downtown just east to the Stalin's Palace of Culture and Science and close to the Central Raliway Station (Warszawa Centralna), so it's the esiest reachable for every visitor.

    It's not my favourite shopping center, never... too expensive, ugly from the outside and not pretty inside (Galeria Mokotow; ul. Woloska 12 looks much better). But the central location, hours (Mon-Fri 9.30am - 9.00 pm; Sat. 9.30am - 9.30pm; Sun 10.30am - 5.00pm), variety of shops and free parking lot (if you spend at least 50 zl) makes Galeria Centrum attractive. They offer ladies', men's and junior fashion, lingerie, accessories, ladies' and men's footwear, jewellery, perfume and cosmetics, and homestyle.

    What to buy: Postcards and local gifts.
    Haha, I think over the first ever VT-meeting in suits and evening dresses, that is joining local ball for "rich and famous" - details in my local customs tips. Well, I don't like wearing any suits (do not tell it to my boss, please) but I can wear it if necessary! In these circumstances, my recommendation for men's participants is to buy 100% wool suit made by Bytom company at reasonable price (700 - 900 zl = 185 - 235 euros). The suits by this company are sold in many countries all over the world and believe me, they are of high quality. Just in case your body is of a strange shape :-) clothes alterations are free at place.

    The Bytom company runs a fancy shop in the most representative shopping street in Berlin, Germany: Bytom Herren Mode, Kurfurstendamm 163 but the suits sold there are more expensive. Soon next shops in London, Paris, Milan... maybe close to your place.

    What to pay: 185 - 235 euros (700 - 900 zl) per high quality 100% wool suit. Generally high (Warsaw) prices. Once I had to buy some basic cosmetics there and... all cost at least 1.5 times more than in my rather expensive hometown.

    Galeria mall: Can you believe this mall is in WARSAW??

    I'm happy for the people of Poland to have so much more than they did on my first visit in the 70's or even what they had just 10 short years ago. Their progress has been phenomenal. When I was in the mall on the southern side of the city... I felt as if I could have been in the relatively new Providence Place Mall here in Rhode Island. You would have to have made the several trips I've made to recognize the distance this country has come. Amazing. At the same time, I'm hoping they never lose the essence of their culture, their spirit, their wonderful giving nature. Well...enough of that. Here are some photos of the shiny new mall I visited in Warsaw in 2006.

    This is the biggest and the nicest mall I have ever seen... You really can get totally lost in it! It´s a very nice place to shop, but you also can find a lot of restaurants, a cinema, a lunapark, a bowling,...
