Welcome to Warsaw - the Polish capital with its thriving nightlife and rich history, make Warsaw a travellers dream. 85% of the city was completely destroyed in World War II. Immediately after the war the enormous task of restoration begin, and Warsaw re-emerged phoenix-like. Parts of the historic city, most notably the Old Town, have been meticulously restored to their previous condition.

Warsaw is not the cold and dead city it used to be under communism rule. Today with a bustling Polish economy the city has undergone a huge transformation.

The home of Marie Curie and Chopin is best seen on foot although there is an efficient public transport system with buses and trams dissecting the city. For entertainment enjoy a Summer Concert in Lazienki Park, a drink in one of Warsaw's bustling bars or sip a coffee on one of the main shopping streets. There are no licencing hours and many bars and clubs stay open until the last guests leave.

For many people, the very symbol of the city is the voluminous Palace of Culture and Science, which was gifted to Warsaw by Stalin. The viewing balcony is now accessible via express lifts and this is the best venue for visitors to get aquainted with the layout of the city.
