Beaches in Central Europe? Really? In Warsaw, of course! The Vistula river boasts several sandy spots - ‘beaches’ - where locals focus more on bronzing up and socializing than actually taking a dip. Even the beach clubs open in the evenings for drinking and dancing into the wee small summer hours.
To experience Warsaw’s cultural vibe in February, book tickets for A Midsummer Night’s Dream: John Neumeier’s ballet based on Shakespeare’s play currently showing at the Grand Theatre (Teatr Wielki). Then have your Sofitel Concierge direct you to some of the city’s funky galleries of modern art to round off your Warsaw stay.
Imposing white coralstone fortresses defy the color that really defines this old colonial seaport.

Indians and Spanish colonialists aside - Cartagena is most associated with pirates in the Caribbean.
Sofitel Legend Santa Clara is part of Cartagena’s rich past. It was once the convent of Santa Clara which was itself the setting for a book by local novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. And Sofitel will continue its literary connection by hosting the Hay Literary Festival this May.
