One of the most magical places in Wroclaw, just two steps from my studio. Small park in the very centre of the city, quiet and full of greenery. Beautiful in every season and every weather. The old-fashioned merry-go-round reminds me of Paris. Can't imagine my Wroclaw without that spot.

"Karawan" means "a hearse" in Polish. And sw. Antoniego street used to be full of funeral parlours. Got it? Now the area is full of great cafes and bars and this one is unique. Good wine and good atmosphere. Makes you feel like in Berlin. Boo!

After long hours at Reina Sofia museum time for going to Outer Space. It's called NuBel and it makes you wonderfully dizzy. Or, better, go there just before the museum - drink some wine and go to admire Guernica in 3D.

Reina Sofia museum is always a good idea. And it's never enough of Picasso's Guernica as well as the other modern art gems. Save some hours for visiting and then look round the corner and have some wine at NuBel.

Spanish artist Jaime Hayon is sometimes called Almodóvar of design. So if you like "Kika", colours, Spanish culture and dreamy aestetics, you must visit Barceló Torre de Madrid and stay there for a night or just have a drink in a golden bar.

Well, it was my long-hidden secret but I will share it with you. Cobra - that's a place! Think twice before you go there because you'll come for a coffee and will stay forever. Phantasmagorical in every way.

Among numerous art galleries in Paris, this one is seriously worth visiting. Very inspiring place with lots of great exhibitions. Yes, too much coolness and beauty in Marais can make you dizzy, but we like it, don't we?

It's always good to check out what's happening in Fondation Cartier. They have lots of really good exhibitions of modern art, and the gallery itself is very beautiful. Perfect for seeing works you already know as well as discovering new artists and inspirations.

Picasso + an awesome view - it will make you jump with joy. One can see lots of "Picassos" everywhere but to see what he created in Antibes, you must come to Antibes. Happy fauns, smiling squares and lots of really cool paintings, drawings and pottery - a truly unique experience.

Paradise for all Henri Matisse admirers and everybody interested in art. Great museum, situated in a beautiful seventeenth-century villa, full of paintings, drawings, sculptures and even almost 200 objects that belonged to the painter. So inspiring!!

My favourite café in Florence, where you can not only drink coffee (if you lucky enough, you'll get it in ToiletPaper mug), but also buy some designer objects (including ToiletPaper gems) or flowers and plants, and, in the evening, listen to live piano music, sitting at the loooong wooden table. Everything five minutes from the Santa Maria del Fiore.

Naoshima is one of the most breathtaking places I've ever visited. It's an art island, full of wonderful museums and art objects immersed in stunning, calm and paradise-like nature. Rent a bike and enjoy all that beauty. If you are Yayoi Kusama's or Tadao Ando's fan, you know what I mean.

If you have that famous I-see-faces-everywhere thing, look twice. The Face House really exists in Kyoto, created by Kazumasa Yamashita in 1973-1974. Don't miss it - it's something really faceinating!

Located inside the Gion Kobu Kaburenjo Theater, a well-known hub of traditional Japanese culture, the Forever Museum of Contemporary Art, Gion-Kyoto (FMOCA) is a place that moves all your senses. Walking barefoot on tatami (smelling really good) you are in the middle of a world where time both stops and rushes into the future. Old Japanese theatre (with the beautiful stage) and modern art - isn't it a dreamy combination? I was lucky enough to see Yayoi Kusama's amazing exhibition there that lasts till the end of February 2019 (be quick!). What is more, the museum has a lovely garden that you can contemplate either from the inside or from the outside, with a red umbrella. Ah, what a place!
