Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal. Warsaw is an unusual city which attracts visitors with its history and special atmosphere. It is the place where Western and Eastern European cultures merge. Even though the city faced terrible damage during the II World War, the historic palaces, churches and buildings had been restored in great detail, which then led to inclusion of Warsaw Old Town in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
The capital of Mazovia and whole Poland has risen from ashes many times. In 1596 it became the residence town of Polish kings and was elevated to the role of the capital of the kingdom. World War I brought freedom to the city and Poland, while World War II brought great destruction. Warsaw was rebuilt thanks to the enormous determination of the whole nation. Warsaw is a perfect embodiment of changes that have taken place in Poland in the past 20 years. It is a city of many faces: a contrasting blend of past and present with the architectural landscape composed of historical and socrealist buildings neighbouring post-modern skyscrapers, cosy cafes and vibrant clubs, of historical Żoliborz and artistic Praga district, but most of all it is a thriving European capital. The city’s diversity and richness means that there is something for everyone.
