Warsaw

Bustling city in the heart of Europe

Warsaw is the capital of Poland, the seat of the Parliament and the Polish government. With almost 2 million inhabitants, it is also a bustling metropolis and the largest city of Poland. It is located on the Vistula, the longest Polish river, called by the Poles the queen of Polish rivers. The symbol of Warsaw is the legendary mermaid, a half woman, half fish, holding a sword in one hand and a shield in the other.
Warsaw is a city full of contrasts. Here, modernity intertwines with history – the one from a few hundred years ago … and the recent one. Warsaw gained city rights over 700 years ago. At the end of the 16th century it became the capital of Poland … today the Warsaw Old Town and the Royal Castle show over 400 years of the city’s history … The Łazienki Palace is one of the most picturesque palaces in this part of Europe. Another palace, located in the city center Palace of Culture and Science, has a completely different character. It is a socialist realist gift from Józef Stalin … And modern skyscrapers of the new City Center are growing fast around it.
