Alexander Suski, a Belgian marketing specialist, chats to Jolanta Wolska.

What brought you to Warsaw?
I was appointed Sales and Marketing Director for InterContinental Hotel Warszawa three years ago.

What do you think is most exciting about Warsaw?
I love Warsaw! It’s a “sexy” city. The most exciting thing about Warsaw is how much business activity there is here, and how it has become so much more Westernized. So many buildings and restaurants are popping up all over town...

Your favorite place in the capital?
I don’t have just one favorite as there are so many unique places. When I am not working, I like the many shopping malls, which stay open until late, like 10 p.m., which is very convenient. The new multimedia fountain at the foot of the Royal Castle is great in summer while the many parks and the Old Town are great to visit during winter.

What do you like doing on the weekend in Warsaw?
I like going out with local friends and other expats to restaurants and enjoy a wide range of cocktail bars. Later in the night, you can’t miss the nightlife of Warsaw! It is vibrant and very active…

Do you have a favorite restaurant in Warsaw?
No, although I like Asian fusion, and there are plenty of options in Warsaw. I eat out a lot, as the restaurants here are very inexpensive and good quality. One can go to a different restaurant every day of the week, unlike in other European cities or capitals where I have worked.

Which would be the two places where a foreigner must go to in Warsaw?
The cultural part of Warsaw with its museums, Old Town, parks, etc… and the entertainment part of Warsaw with its restaurants, bars, clubs, and so on. They are all so vibrant and close to each other—great for groups to go out celebrating.

What don’t you like about Warsaw?
The language. I am learning, but it is hard and I am making slow progress. Although most young people here speak English or French—so that’s very helpful.
