    I loved Warsaw!

    Warsaw is an interesting city, with a good vibe. It is fairly inexpensive and there are plenty of places to eat and drink. The Free Walking Tour by Orange Umbrella is excellent and a must do!

    Insider Tip:The tall chocolate swirly ice creams, which are sold everywhere, are delicious!

    Good city. Not not the best of course. Old town is very very beautyful.

    For chopping it is good. And of course for eating you can find a lot of place in city center. Old town also very nice place.

    Absolutely amazing city, Warsaw

    If you are interested in WWII, you really need to go to Warsaw once in your lifetime. This city was totally mesmerizing considering the citizens' great efforts to rebuild their home after the war.

    Insider Tip:The Eastern Europe, including Poland, is really famous for cheap and good qualified meat. If you are crazy about meat, there are quite a lot of local restaurants you should try since they serve one of the best meat dishes in Europe, as far as I could see.
