Warsaw - the capital of Poland

Warsaw is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. Warsaw, the capital of Poland since 1596, is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. During the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, more than 85% of Warsaw's historic centre was destroyed by Nazi troops. After the war, a five-year reconstruction campaign by its citizens resulted in today's meticulous restoration of the Old Town, with its churches, palaces and market-place. It is an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century. Today a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and city is regarded as a place of culture for all tastes and budgets. Warsaw is considered an Alpha– global city, a major international tourist destination and a significant cultural, political and economic hub. There are countless reasons to fall in love with Warsaw.
