Warsaw is the proud capital of Poland and, with over 1.7 million inhabitants, the country's largest city. The Second World War was disastrous for Warsaw. The city was in ruins and the Nazi regime destroyed the Jewish Ghetto. But then the reconstruction began. The old centre was restored and modern buildings were also erected. The Old Town has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The 'Miracle of Warsaw' has come full circle.

Places to visit in Warsaw

The Royal Castle is a logical starting point for a tour of the city. After it was bombed in 1944, it was rebuilt as a paragon of Baroque architecture. The old St. John's Cathedral was also severely damaged and later restored. Only one palace in Warsaw survived the war: the Wilanów Palace. Visit this palatial residence and admire 60 royal chambers in their original state. At the grand market square, , the stately façades are on display in all their glory. It is also where you'll find the Warsaw Historical Museum. A statue of Syrena Staromiejska, the city's patroness, stand tall in the centre of the market square.

Discover Warsaw

Walk along the Royal Way from the Old Town to the New Town. It's a 4 kilometre walk that will take you past numerous sights along the way. One of the most impressive monuments in the New Town is the memorial of the Warsaw Uprising in memory of the atrocities of WWII. Just a short walk takes you to the Krasiński Palace, splendidly built in Baroque style and flanked by a beautiful palace garden. Most shops are located in the Old Town. The main shopping streets are Nowy Świat and Chmielna. There are also large department stores and shopping centres. Bargain hunters can visit the antique market in Kolo every Sunday. Who knows what wondrous treasures are hidden there?
