Poland is undoubtedly a porcelain country. Whether young or old, Poles have lots of porcelain at home, everybody has their favourite companies and many people, also the younger generations, collect it. This huge demand has been answered by the shops selling new design porcelain as well as more classical types. If one of your friends collects porcelain, this might also be a perfect gift from your trip to Warsaw.
To get an idea about this china kingdom, you will need to visit one of Warsaw’s many porcelain shops and I suggest you start here in Piękna, directly in the city centre. The shop is the oldest shop of that type in Warsaw: it can boast of a tradition of almost 40 years. It is also the biggest one, full of china from top to bottom.
Here you will find porcelain by such well-known Polish giants as Krosno, Bogucice, Ćmielów or Gerlach.
Having always thought of porcelain as something exclusive and expensive, I was amazed by the fact that many of the designs they sell are affordable and also make beautiful gifts (remember to take them home in hand luggage though!). Pop in to discover the Polish porcelain treasure.
