About Warsaw

Travel back in time to Poland’s communist era and visit arresting monuments. Get acquainted with the historical sights and cultural delights of Warsaw, admire the grand architecture of the capital and largest city of Poland, Warsaw, one of Europe's most dynamic metropolitan cities that stands on the Vistula River. Nicknamed as the 'Paris of East' till it was mercilessly ruined and razed by the Germans during World War II. Warsaw has literally risen like a phoenix from the ruins and today Warsaw is a dissonant mix of architecture that solidifies Warsaw’s position as a transit point between Western and Eastern Europe. Nowhere is Poland’s progress more apparent than that of the country’s economic and political capital, Warsaw. When it comes to food and culture, Krakow in Poland’s south has typically nabbed the limelight, but Warsaw is quickly stealing the show as it has no shortage of international restaurants these days. Adding to the glory of Warsaw's cuisine scenario, two restaurants earned a Michelin star in 2013 and 2016 for the first time in Polish history.

Warsaw’s fast-paced development extends to its cultural scene too, with new museums and galleries opening on a regular basis. Warsaw’s Chopin Airport is keeping up with its fast-paced growth, handling an increasing number of passengers and international flight connections every year. The historic city takes immense pride in its possessions be it the stunning architecture of the Lazienki Krolewski Palace and Wilanow Museum Palace or Marvel at monuments such as the Barbican and Old Town Market Square. Admire the aristocratic buildings of the "Royal Route." The city's symbol "The Monument of the Warsaw Mermaid" was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980 as it represents examples of nearly every European architectural style. With so much to offer, it is little surprise that “Warsaw has truly become very vibrant and international.” Every month there are more than 100 cultural events taking place in Warsaw. Institutions of culture in Warsaw offer a rich program of exhibitions and accompanying events, often of international nature. The Warsaw Philharmonic and the Polish National Opera do the city proud. But the musical events in Warsaw go further, with its Summer Jazz Days, Jewish Music Festival, and live rock venues like Stodola to enjoy. So look no further and head to Warsaw as it has plenty to offer on its traveling itinerary.
