Having gone a complete transformation following WWII, Warsaw has reemerged as a renovated city bursting with theatres, restaurants, museums and music festivals turning it into a city brimming with life.
Bubbling with culture, energy and action, Warsaw has suffered throughout the years and yet has managed to transform itself superbly. Flattened by constant bombings during WWII, the city has been over the years quickly replacing what has been lost.
Brimming with museums, Warsaw is home to the Warsaw Uprising Museum
as well as to two new museums dedicated solely to Chopin

Warsaw is home to several theatres, restaurants, museums, nightclubs and festivals which are spread throughout the city.
During the summer months, Warsaw converts itself into a more vivacious city.
A city with the tallest four-faced clock tower in the world, Warsaw’s tower is one of the youngest yet most high-flying symbols of architecture when it was built in 1956.
This high energy has also stretched to the city’s thriving music scene. With street fests, art festivals and plenty of music festivals on throughout the year, Warsaw is building a reputation based on its culturally different and high end nightlife scene.
The Stare Miasto
(Old Town) is one of Warsaw’s main attractions. Completely destroyed during World War II, Old Town was rebuilt to resemble its former appearance from the 16th up to the 18th centuries.
Cobblestone streets, Gothic houses and buildings along with many cafes and arts stalls embellish this area and have been delighting tourists for years.
The Palace of Culture and Science
is also a prominent landmark in Warsaw’s commercial district. Inside the building there are offices, a puppet theatre, a Cineplex, shops and museums. For a most memorable and panoramic view, go up to the 30th floor.
