Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural center. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal. Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. A city where a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and a city of culture for all tastes and budgets.
Warsaw’s architecture is a diverse mix of styles and talents: modern buildings rub shoulders with historical landmarks – whether reconstructed or miraculously preserved. But the most exciting thing is the constant and rapid change it is undergoing, which means that every time you visit, there is something new to be discovered.
The Old Town in Warsaw comes alive in the summer, as tourists, street performers and festivals take over the cobblestone streets. Plac Zamkowy (Castle Square), on the south side of the Old Town, is the obvious place to start a tour.
Walking the streets of the Old Town and New Town allows you to rest from the bustle of central city life. Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history, and in the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.
