Warsaw

Welcome to Warsaw!

Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is a city of contrasts that hides its true colours underneath the apparent greyness. Here old meets new, the past meets the future. This city, which used to be called „Paris of the North”, is currently experiencing a renaissance after the hardships of war and communism. In a newly rebuilt city centre you will find a memento of Stalinism, the Palace of Culture and Science (on the 30th floor of the Palace, there is a viewing terrace that offers the visitors a breathtaking panorama of the city), which is now surrounded by modern architecture and skyscrapers. Now, you have a chance to get to know this reborn Warsaw, not only its history, but also its new face – contemporary museums and lively bars and restaurants.
