The city of Warsaw, the historical capital of Poland. Although Warsaw is one of the most rapidly developing cities in Europe with huge potential and extraordinary energy, its residents like to look back on its history and are able to skilfully combine tradition and modernity. Observing the city reveals a surprising and unique permeation on both of its sides at every step.

The city’s diverse architecture reflects its varied past, from Gothic and Renaissance structures to Soviet-era buildings and contemporary skyscrapers. The Palace of Culture and Science, an iconic landmark, offers panoramic views of the cityscape.

The best-known and one of the tallest building in the city, the Palace of Culture and Science. Visible from almost any place in Warsaw, the palace is to Warsaw what the Eiffel Tower is to Paris – the perfect landmark. Visitors can take the lift up to the 30th floor to see the city panorama from a height of 114 metres. The palace also houses theatres, a cinema, museums and trendy bistros, as well as the city’s main Tourist Information Point.

Warsaw is not only a hub of history but also a cultural hotspot. Museums like the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews and the Warsaw Uprising Museum provide immersive experiences, delving into the city’s poignant stories. Art enthusiasts can indulge in the Warsaw National Gallery and numerous galleries showcasing both classical and contemporary works.

Half of the city of Warsaw is green. There are as many as 95 parks with Łazienki heading the list. In the summer, the famous Chopin Concerts take place in a unique outdoor setting, while in the historical interiors of the theatre founded by King Stanisław August music by contemporary composers can be heard.
