The biggest city of Poland
Once you’ve travelled around Poland, you realise this: Warsaw is different. Rather than being centred on an old market square, the capital is spread across a broad area with diverse architecture: restored Gothic, communist concrete, modern glass and steel.
Symbols of the city
There are so many things to do in Warsaw. In this post, you’ll read all you need to know to have a great trip in Warsaw. You’ll read about our selected list of attractions, museums, food & drink spots, shopping hacks, breathtaking views, and off the beaten path experiences that you shouldn’t miss when visiting Warsaw. Most people that come to Warsaw for just two or three days usually get started with a tour of the city. That is not a bad idea, especially if you didn’t have much time to plan.
The Royal Castle
The royal Castle in Warsaw is an experience you will hold dear in your heart for a long time. First built in the 14th century, the castle went through some dreadful times. As you may already know, the Royal Castle – and the entire old town in Warsaw – was completely destroyed by Nazi Germany during WWII and rebuilt later on.
The Palace of Culture and Science
The Palace of Culture and Science was a “gift” from Stalin to the people of Poland. It took about 9000 workers and three years to build this majestic building. Varsovians have mixed feelings about this building – as it is sometimes considered a symbol of Soviet domination – but Warsaw Skyline wouldn’t be the same without it.
Łazienki park is an explosion of life and colors. Vibrant multicolored flowers, the infinite shades of green treetops, the tweet of birds, the company of red furred squirrels and the reflection of the buildings in the lake are the perfect muse for any artist.
Today’s post is only a small introduction to this vibrant city. Next time I will take you for a culinary trip of Warsaw. Enjoy!!!
