Warsaw is the capital of Poland. Warsaw is inspiring and vibrant, combining the crazy rhythm of the largest business hub of Central Europe with coziness and the welcoming attitude of locals.

It is hard to believe that the picturesque streets and beautiful buildings of the UNESCO-protected Old Town are a meticulous work of the renovators.

World War II may have almost completely destroyed Warsaw but this city rose like a true phoenix from the ruins to become one of the most interesting and fastest growing metropolises of Europe.

It’s also got a dynamic culinary scene, boasting one of the coolest selections of vegetarian eateries in Europe as well as a great variety of street food spots.

Unrivaled views from the top of the giant Stalinist Palace of Science and Culture are worth the climb — not least because, as locals love to say.

A glimpse of pre-war Warsaw is on view at the elegant Wilanów palace, which was once the most beautiful architectural jewel of the Polish monarchs. The beautiful symmetrical gardens, adorned with fountains and sculptures of the past, are a relaxing spot.
