Warsaw is the capital and largest city of Poland. The metropolis stands on the Vistula River in east-central Poland. Its population is estimated at ca. 2 million residents. The historical heart of Warsaw was reconstructed in the 1950s after WWII, when more than 85% of Warsaw's historic centre was destroyed. After the war, a 5-year reconstruction campaign by its citizens resulted in the meticulous restoration of the Old Town. In 1980, Warsaw Old Town was inscribed onto the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The capital of Poland is a vibrant and green metropolis, showcasing diverse architecture of a modern city centre and places of historical significance. Historic Gothic buildings , baroque palaces, socialist realism architecture, and contemporary buildings, along with traces of multicultural heritage, including Jewish landmarks, form a unique mixture. Today, while remaining truthful to its rich and tortuous past, Warsaw is a major international tourist destination and a significant cultural, political and economic hub. Whatever you are looking for, the city has much to offer to history lovers and tourists alike.
Poland is a Central European country with a population of 38.5 million people. Located between the Baltic Sea in the north and the Tatra Mountains in the south, the country surprises visitors with its variety of landscapes and sceneries. The longest river, the Vistula, flows across the country, connecting the ancient city of Cracow, Warsaw – the capital – and the port town of Gdańsk. The Masurian Lakeland attracts yachting lovers and those who would like to discover the primeval forest, where rare species of animals and old trees whisper the tale of days gone by.
With eleven centuries of history behind it, Poland has a very rich cultural heritage, which goes back to the days when the amber route ran through its lands. Copernicus’ medieval city of Toruń, the Salt Mine in Wieliczka and Gdańsk shipyard only begin the long list of Polish highlights. Nowadays, 31 years after the beginning of the transition process, Poland is a modern country and one of Europe’s most dynamic economies. Good quality education, public support for innovativeness and creative, open citizens represent the country’s greatest capital.
