Grodzisk is located some 75 miles (121 kilometers) from Warsaw, the capital of Poland.
Don't restrict yourself to Grodzisk, because Masovia has been blessed with a treasure trove natural and man-made attractions just waiting to be explored. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Kleszczele, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west, and Siedlce 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast.
Bialystok is around 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Grodzisk. This center has a number of interesting things to see, like Bialystok Puppet Theater, J. Dziekonski Park and Bialystok Historical Museum. Bialystok City Stadium and Branicki Palace are also good spots for investigating before returning to Grodzisk.
Be sure to take your tastebuds for a tour through the culinary landscapes of Masovia. Favorite meals include zrazy wołowe zawijane (dill cucumbers and onions wrapped in thin strips of beef) and pyzy z mięsem (round potato dumplings stuffed with meat), but naturally there are many more dishes to choose from. To complete your local experience, try nalesniki (pancakes filled with sweet white cheese).
Warm the hearts of the locals in Masovia, by making use of some useful Polish words. "Czy chcesz ze mną zatańczyć?" means "Would you like to dance with me?" And, for "Where are you from?", you can learn how to say "Skąd jesteś?" Don't be shy, just give it a spin!
When it's time to head back to your friends at home, you'll be bidding Grodzisk a sad Narazie (farewell).
