Warsaw sits along the banks of Vistula the river and is the capital of Poland. The city is mostly modern due to it being destroyed during WWII and has been mostly rebuilt over the last century. However, even though it is largely new, the city was rebuilt to represent both old and new architecture creating an enticing mix of warm, olde worlde charm.
With a long history and a culture that is known for being lavish, Warsaw is a favoured stop for a great deal of tourists and offers plenty to see while in town. The top of the list is the Wilanow Park Palace Complex where you will find gardens, the Poster Museum, lawn concerts, and some great architecture as it used to be home to some of the most notable Polish aristocratic claims.
The palace Lazienki Krolewski is also a must see as it is one of the best landscape gardens that dates back to the 17th century and is simply beautiful. Those that want to get more a feel for Polish life will want to head towards Castle Square where you can find some great local shops, every day street performers, and some great food at the stalls that line the streets.
