Spring (March, April, May) and autumn (September, October, November) are both lovely seasons in Warsaw, with pleasant mild temperatures and plenty of sun, although autumn can be misty.
Warsaw has a long tourist season and the city is lovely to visit any time between April and October. The peak tourist season is summer, especially July and August, when many festivals are held. Tourists should note, however, that many local residents take their holidays in August, which means that the city can become unpleasantly crowded. Those who don't mind the cold and snow will find that Warsaw is a great winter destination as most of the sightseeing is not weather-dependant.
