Olsztyn Nightlife, Poland
Although Olsztyn, the capital of the Warmian-Mazurian Voivodeship, is not a very big city, its streets become very animated at night. Olsztyn nightlife revolves around two centers: the Old Town (Stare Miasto) and the Warmian-Mazurian University campus (Kortowo). Located in the woods surrounding Kortowo Lake, the campus is one of the largest in Poland. Except its numerous sports facilities, nice views of the lake and small shops/fast-foods, the campus has an interesting way of entertaining students: each dormitory has a club/bar on the first floor.

There are some tasty Greek (Greco), Italian (Diavolo Pizzeria, Pepperoni) and Japanese (Yoko Sushi) restaurants.
