City Guide Warsaw, Poland

Visiting Warsaw

While 85% of the city was destroyed during WWII, many impressive buildings escaped unscathed some of which were built as far back as the 13th century. Nevertheless, evidence of the ravages of war are present throughout Warsaw but this is what experiencing a new city is all about – history, memories and reminders.

    Interesting City for Exploring

    We went to the Warsaw rising museum at the beginning of our trip and found it very interesting to see the city after having learned about the key locations associated with the rising. There are lots of free walking tours that take you around different parts of the city.

    Insider Tip:Great public transport through the city!

    Lovely city

    Polish people will say that Warsaw is a ugly city. Don't trust them. Although the city was totally rebuilt after the war, there are a lot of lovely places to go. Street art everywhere and great restaurants. Don't forget to try the Polish Vodka too!

    Insider Tip:Do go to the parks in the south of the city! It's worth going!
