Internet Cafes

4 min read    5 comments

Internet cafes? Naturally, like most cities in Poland, Warsaw has a terrific selection of places to choose from, so when you're in the city, you'll easily be able to keep in touch through the web. Prices are very reasonable - expect to pay around 3 zloty per hour (that's about 50 pence or 80 US cents) and there are rock-bottom price deals for the night owls who want to work through during the dead hours. Again, you'd probably pay around 10 zloty (less than 2 pounds between 10 pm and 6 am) though it varies from internet cafe to internet cafe. A relatively small percentage of Poles have internet connections at home, and most of those are courtesy of the sluggish (and expensive) state-run telecommunications company, so the upshot has been an explosion of public internet cafes with high-speed connections offering a good range of internet-related services at a reasonable price. They're popular and their numbers are growing rapidly. From the vast halls of virtual vivacity to your more intimate mom-and-pop cafes, you'll find it all on Warsaw's streets. Pretty soon you'll find yourself at home amongst email-obsessors and cyber-geeks galore.

Cafe Casablanca
ul. Krakowskie Przedmiescie 4/6
A hit among university students and expats, this cafe can properly claim it's located in the city's busy centre - on a main thoroughfare and immediately adjacent to the University of Warsaw. Come one, come all because not only do they have the usual refreshments (coffee, beer, cocktails) but you can enjoy your beverage while surfing the net. They've got PCs set up for your disposal, or bring your own laptop and log on to the wireless service. Occasional impromptu chess tournaments and poetry readings give this place added character; stop by Friday night for live music!

Right off the Rynek! Stop into this internet point for access to great computers and super service.

In addition to providing an ample amount of machines at your disposal, various additional options are available, such as: stamp and business card production upon request, binding, and laminating of materials. A great one-stop shop for various business and/or school supplies as well. Check it out!
