Warsaw’s nighttime illumination On 07 December (Saturday) the streets of Warsaw will start to glow with illumination. Locals and tourists will enjoy beautiful light decorations and plenty of other attractions in Krakowskie Przedmieście, the Old Town and the Multimedia Fountain Park.

It is worth taking a walk along Krakowskie Przedmieście on Saturday, 07 December, at about 15:30 to see as it transforms into a world of Christmas wonders. Brass bands along with a procession of artists will march off from the Copernicus monument right after dusk. They will proceed to Podzamcze, admiring the environmentally friendly LED lights on the 27-metre Christmas tree, a near life-like spruce. Numerous surprises will be waiting along the way, including a parade of cheerleaders in Santa outfits, majorettes, actors, acrobats, stilt walkers and jugglers from the Scena Kalejdoskop street theatre, as well as actors and dancers from the B&B musical school, and Fly Academy students in spectacular dance setups on girdles and wheels. Other attractions will include performances by children's dance ensembles and a parade drill by the Warsaw City Guard.

At 17:00 opera soloists Aleksandra Wiwała, Aleksandra Borkiewicz and Leszek Świdziński, and the Three Young Tenors, will give a singing performance from the balcony of the Bristol hotel. They will present works from the repertoire of Jan Kiepura, who also once sang in that location, as well as a selection of recent years’ top hits in alternative and often surprisingly novel arrangements. The concert will close with the gathered Varsovians singing together the most popular Christmas song of all time – “Last Christmas” – to celebrate its 35th anniversary. In addition, an audiovisual light show will be displayed on the walls of Bristol's historic building.
Professional choirs, as well as choirs featuring amateur Varsovians – trained for the occasion by conductor Ewa Jurkiewicz – will perform on the Royal Route to make the walk there an even nicer experience.

A host of other attractions will wait for strollers along the way, with Christmas melodies oozing out of the speakers set up along Krakowskie Przedmieście. Also, a number of photo booths will be open for all those who want to take a souvenir picture. The Warsaw Waterworks will be serving the hot and thirsty with hot tea made from Warsaw's tap water.

Podzamcze will glow with the 30,000 fountain LED lights, sparkling to the rhythm of popular Winter songs. Fifteen-minute long light and music shows will be put on at full hours: 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 o’clock. Accompanied by a reindeer, Santa Claus will be waiting for kids to have a picture with him, and all visitors to the Multimedia Fountain Park will get a hot cup of tea. All the attractions surrounding the Christmas illumination will be available until 19:30.
