Warsaw (poln. Warszawa), located on both sides of the middle Vistula, is the Polish capital. It has more than 2 million inhabitants and is the largest city in Poland. The contrast could not be stronger: on the one hand, modern skyscrapers, office buildings and elegant restaurants, on the other hand, the charming Old Town, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
In 1945, the city was almost largely destroyed and there were considerations to make Lodz the capital. Then it was decided to rebuild the city after all – with success! With a lot of effort and attention to detail, much has been rebuilt according to old specifications. During a walk through the old town you can hardly believe this. In recent years, Warsaw has developed into a vibrant European metropolis. More than 30 theatres – such as the Teatre Wielki, the Chamber Opera – and around 50 museums – such as the National Museum Muzeum Narodowe – round off the cultural offer in the city. Varied and breathtaking impressions are guaranteed when visiting Warsaw!
The Polish capital Warsaw stretches on both sides of the Vistula. By far the largest city in Poland, it is also the most important economic and cultural center of the country and an important transport hub. The city, destroyed by the Germans in the Second World War after the Warsaw Uprising, was rebuilt. The exemplary reconstructed old town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
