In Warsaw

Tap Water

Tap water is generally safe to drink, though bottled water is cheap and readily available.

Medical Services

  • For an ambulance call 999, or 112 from a mobile phone. English-speaking dispatchers are rare, however, so you’re probably better off phoning a medical centre with multilingual staff.
  • For nonurgent treatment, you can go to one of the city’s many przychodnia (outpatient clinics). Your hotel or embassy can provide recommendations.
  • There are plenty of pharmacies in Warsaw where you can get medical advice; look or ask for an apteka.
