For many, the time between Christmas and the New Year is a leisure time which has little to do with physical activity. As an alternative to the blissful idleness, the city encourages its residents to join the action “Warsaw, move your body after Christmas!”. Those who join in can expect a number of sporting attractions, including organised activities and competitions for whole families.

The previous editions and the high resident attendance have confirmed that this is a great initiative which enables whole families to extend the Christmas cheer by spending time in an engaging way. This year, too, I invite everyone to have fun, burn calories, do something for their health and stay fit,” said Renata Kaznowska, Deputy Mayor of the City of Warsaw.    

Every day from 27 to 31 December, the residents will be able to engage in numerous sporting attractions. The municipal sports centres have come up with some interesting offerings for them. Those who want to lose some extra weight and spend the time between Christmas and the New Year in a healthy and active way can enjoy ice skating and rink events, organised activities and competitions, and also skiing down Szczęśliwicka Hill.
With the Varsovian's Card and the Young Varsovian’s Card, using municipal swimming pools, ice rinks and the Szczęśliwice All-year Skiing Slope is free of charge.

Morevoer, as part of the “Active Varsovians – Warsaw, move your body after Christmas” programme, the “Biegówki” Skiing Society is organising a series of activities on the Wesoła roller-blading track and the Culture Park in Powsin.

Also, the Feniks Student Sports Club in Rembertów invites the residents to engage in sporting and recreation activities at the swimming pool of the War Studies University on 27-29 and 31 December (103 gen. A. Chruściela “Montera” Street).
