Greek-born Georgios Babakos chats to Jolanta Wolska.

What brings you to Warsaw?
I came to visit my Polish girlfriend.

What do you like in Warsaw?
I like the friendliness of the people and young Poles seem to be very easygoing and happy. I feel free and alive in Warsaw. It is a very positive city. I like the atmosphere and ambiance of the Slavic soul and culture.

Do you like Warsaw architecture?
The Old Town has good vibes. It is amazing how faithfully it was all reconstructed after the devastation during World War II. The city is such a mixture of architectural styles from different periods, and at the same time it is like any other thoroughly modern European city. The parks in Warsaw are great too.

What impressed you in Warsaw?
That Poles talk openly about their history, including the fate of Jews during the war at the hands of the Germans, and of course about the 1944 Warsaw Uprising. I was impressed to see so many monuments around Warsaw that pay respect to the many lives lost during the wars.

What did you enjoy most in Warsaw?
I really enjoyed the free jazz concerts in the Old Town and the Singer’s Warsaw Jewish culture festival. There is a lot of culture in Warsaw, I love all the concerts here and the music in the streets in summer.

What will you miss when you leave?
I will miss walking around the Old Town in the morning, having coffee in one of the cafes, and watching the city wake up.
