Warsaw Overview

Warsaw is known as the "phoenix city" because it has survived many wars and conflicts throughout its long history. It was completely destroyed during World War II, and rebuilt with the heroic effort of Polish citizens. Nowadays the Old Town again impresses tourists with its cobbled streets and unique architecture. The city is situated in east-central Poland, on the Vistula River and with more then 1,700 00 inhabitants it is the largest city of Poland. The first reference dates back to 1313 but the capital Warsaw became in 1596, when King Zygmunt III Waza moved his court from Krakow to Warsaw.

No wonder that Warsaw isn´t a spectacularly beautiful city... It´s well-known that its ancient beauty was damaged by World War II and the post-war silhouette built "Stalin´s children”. However in the jungle of block of flats is possible to find a few gems, such as Cathedrals or Royal Castle. But although Poles suffered in history a lot, when you speak with locals, you feel the self-confident nation. What I didn´t really like: Warsaw is not friendly for pedestrians. Pass it on foot means to march through integrated circuit of block of flats and 8-lane expressway. Anyway it is good to walk from the periphery to the Old Town (it starts by the street Nowy Swiat). Among block of flats I found hidden cathedrals and castle Belvedere. The Old Town is very nice. It is fascinating that was totally re-built after World War II.
