About the city 🌇

With over 1.8 million residents, Warsaw is both Poland's capital and biggest metropolis. Located in the geographic center of Poland, on the banks of the Vistula River.

Warsaw has been called a "phoenix city" due to its ability to rise again from the ashes of destruction after its history of rapid growth following numerous conflicts. It was almost entirely destroyed during World War II, like Rotterdam and Dresden, but the tale of Warsaw's devastation and ultimate defeat is much more tragic. Reconstructed from a field of rubble, its historic center was recreated thanks to the efforts of its remaining residents and, indeed, the entire country, but much of its legacy was lost in the process. Because of its sizable Jewish community, which was almost entirely annihilated during World War II, Warsaw is also a significant site for Holocaust memorials and education.

Warsaw is now a thriving city, the ninth most populous urban center in the European Union and one of the EU's fastest-growing cities. It is continuously evolving and features an eclectic blend of new and ancient building styles. Despite its size, the city's excellent public transportation makes visiting a breeze, and the majority of the city's top attractions are conveniently located within walking distance of one another.

Living in Warsaw is an exciting experience, as the city has so much to offer! Whether it’s sightseeing, shopping, or dining out, there are plenty of popular places to explore. From iconic landmarks and museums to traditional restaurants and markets.

Start your visit by exploring the historic Old Town of Warsaw. Here you can find the beautiful Stare Miasto (Old Town) Square that dates back centuries and features stunning Baroque architecture. Take a stroll along Ulica Nowomiejska (New Market Street), lined with lively bars and cafes. Don't miss the chance to take in the breathtaking views from one of the highest towers in Europe - The Palace of Culture and Science!
