Located near the Vistula River, this district used to have a very rich nightlife even as it was getting fancier and fancier. At the moment, Powisle is in my opinion losing a little bit of his character due to the massive building development and the new apartments that are quickly rising in the area.
However, having a walk or biking through the district during spring and summer is still really interesting and really green – there are plenty of terraces to sit and have a drink or hang out.
The list time I went, Marcin insisted we had a walk on Tamka street (I used to work very close so I was not really enthusiastic) because he wanted to show me how nice his district had become lately. Indeed, just opposite the Chopin Museum there is a nice work of street art. Painted in 2010 the mural represents a list of important people in the life of the composer. Of course he is the most important character, and on his side is George Sand holding a cigar.
Just on the other side of the street there is a mirror building with other pieces of street art regularly painted which function as advertisements. I must admit I like advertisements – even more if they are in done in graffiti.
