Where is Warsaw?
The Capital City of Poland is situated in the center of the country. It’s crossed by the Vistula – the longest Polish river. The City is placed near the most important communication routs and has its own airport, Frederic Chopin Warsaw Airport, which is the biggest one in Poland.
Warsaw in the Past
History of the settlement in this area reaches the early medieval period, when Warsaw was only a small village. Because of its great location, the city developed and in 1596 became the capital of Poland. Today it’s the biggest Polish city with over 1.8 million inhabitants.
The city of contrasts
On one side of the city there is the historic Old Town, the Baroque Royal Castle and many other monuments of its glorious past. On the other side you can find modern sky-scrapers and remains of communist times. Warsaw is the city of contrasts.
Weak Points: Rush and noise characteristic for great metropolis, untapped potential of Vistula’s right bank with such interesting district like Praga.
Must-see for: Everyone who want to meet Poland!
