Portray of the Destination
During the Second World War, Warsaw was severely bombed. By 1945, almost 85% of the city was
destroyed and its baroque tinge was lost. After the War, the city was rebuilt and it resumed its
role as the capital city of Poland, and the center of political and economic life of the country.
In 2004, Poland became a member of the European Union, and it is currently experiencing the biggest
economic boom in its history.
Nowadays, with more than 1,500,000 inhabitants, the largest city in Poland offers all its charm
to its visitors. About 370 kilometers from the Baltic Sea, the city is located in the heartland of
the Masovian Plain. In the city, there are more than 30 theaters to visit, as well as many museums
and art galleries to discover. Among its most interesting places and monuments, you can discover
the Old Town (declared World Heritage site by the UNESCO in 1980), the Royal Road with many
palaces, the Ogród Saski Park and its Universities.
