WARSAW

Every city has a place that is a must-see on the sightseeing map.
In Warsaw, it is the Old Town, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List – here the heart of the capital has been beating for centuries.
Warsaw is one of the most fastest developing European cities, with great potential and extraordinary energy, where residents often refer to its history and know how to combine tradition with modernity.
High-rise buildings rise above the red roofs of the old town. Modern architecture harmoniously complements the historic buildings,

We suggest walking along the Royal Route, which connects the former residences of Poland’s kings. When you get down to the Wisła River, you will see modern boulevards stretching between the Multimedia Fountain Park and the Copernicus Science Center. In the summer, when clubhouses and bars are open here, in almost every one of them you can listen to live music.

The other side of the Wisła river has preserved its natural character, which is unique in Europe and delights all visitors. There are plenty of places for sporting activity, sandy beaches and bicycle paths.

Those who like nature, peace and quiet will be able to relax among trees and greenery. Almost half the area of the city’s is green.
There are 95 parks in Warsaw, led by the Łazienki Królewskie Park, where you can listen to the famous open-air Chopin Concerts in the summer.
Warsaw has a rich calendar of musical, cultural and sports events.
Warsaw’s museums, including interactive ones, will help you understand the city’s history, and festivals, concerts and outdoor exhibitions take place throughout the year.
