About Warsaw

Including tips for the best time to visit Warsaw

Warsaw's history is told though its architecture, from its restored Gothic structures to steel high-rises and everything in between. The Royal Castle served as the monarchy's residence for about 300 years before it was totally destroyed in WW2. Then, there's the Palace of Culture and Science, which dates back to the Soviet era, remains Poland's tallest structure, and now houses theaters, bars, museums, and an observation deck on the 30th floor.

The city's complex story unfolds even further in all of its great museums. The Warsaw Rising Museum covers the history of the Warsaw Uprising in 1944 through interactive displays, photographs, and film archives.

Though there's history down every street, Warsaw is as modern as any other European capital, full of gorgeous green spaces like Lazienki Park, as well as a variety of Polish and fushion restaurants, cozy bars, and galleries in the beautifully restored old town. Take a guided tour of Old Praga to discover the city's besk kept secrets. Then, when night falls, head over to Mazowiecka Street to experience the best of Warsaw’s vibrant nightlife.

This is my first visit to WARSAW, I found it mixture between old historical city and modern style capital. Very nice and clean local transportation network especially the underground metro, many attractive sight-seen in the old part of the city. Very friendly people, prices are reasonable and many items quiet cheap.

I have been to Warsaw for two short visits and really like it. It is full of important and interesting history. It is a very walkable city. The reconstructed buildings are beautiful and amazing. I loved all the concerts on offer. A visit to the Museum of the Warsaw Uprising is a must. We stayed at the Hampton by Hilton near the train station which was excellent. Modern, reasonable cost, excellent breakfast, nice bar and reception, great staff, convenient location. Comfortable beds and rooms.

An interesting old city much less expensive than Western European cities. Especially nice parks. I would use the convenient and inexpensive public transit to get around the city since traffic and parking are bad. The food is good and inexpensive, both in local eateries and in the tourist areas. English is not commonly spoken very well so if I had to get around using English only it would be a challenge.

Amazing City , beautiful architecture and scenery, great value eating and drinking all over town and riverside especially for a capital city. If your a football fan highly recommend taking in a Legia Warsaw football match.

City has lots of history, good museums and places to eat. It's a green city with quite a few nice parks. I visited it for a weekend but 5-6 days would be enough if you want to cover the most places.I would highly recommended a walking guide tour of the old city and Polin museum.

Warsaw has some interesting sites but in general it is not quite as interesting as most other European capitals. Obviously this is entirely due to the severe destruction it experienced during the second war.
