Warsaw Holidays Overview

Warsaw is defined by two of its most prominent features – the Wisa River and the Moscow Road. Both landmarks play a huge role in affording the city with the position that it enjoys today. Both landmarks have also witnessed countless accounts of heroism and uprisings that have ensured the presence of an extremely rich history for anyone who plans to visit the city. Warsaw might have completely transformed itself from a reserved city of communist Poland into a modern day metropolis, but landmarks such as the Royal Castle, Old Town and the Uprising Monument offer great insights into the city’s history and culture.

The Polish capital is not only famous for offering one of most accessible public transportation systems in Europe, it is also full of cobblestone alleys and baroque palaces that simply must be explored by every traveller visiting the city. If you know your history well, you should know that the historic Old Town of Warsaw was completely destroyed by the German troops in the world war. However, no trace of the destruction is visible today as the Polish masterfully reconstructed their iconic Old Town to bring it back to its former glory.

Krakow might beat Warsaw in terms of its beauty, but what it lacks in beauty, it more than makes up with its never ending energy and beautiful culture. The dynamism and energy of the city extend into its people and its club scene. Beautiful festivals, foot tapping action, Chopin inspired music festivals, unique street carnivals and interactive exhibitions are a part of everyday like in Warsaw and irrespective of when you visit, you can expect a range of sights, attractions and events waiting to be explored.

Some of the “must see” attractions of Warsaw include the Royal Castle, Old Town, Palace of Culture & Science, Chopin Museum, Lazienki Park and the National Museum. The restaurants of Al Jerozolimskie, pubs of Praga and jazz concerts of Tygmont are also worth checking out.

Warsaw holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Old Town (Starego Miasta)

What is it? The busy Old Town provides the historic focal point of the city, having been rebuilt in the original 17th and 18th century style following the almost total destruction of the city during the war. The picturesque Old Market Square (Rynek) is at the centre, surrounded by restored buildings and colourful three-story merchant houses with Baroque and Renaissance facades, lively open-air restaurants, art stalls and the Historical Museum of Warsaw. Around the two old central water pumps, the atmosphere is a constant buzz of activity with buskers, painters and musicians providing entertainment for the milling crowds, while around the fringes the clattering of hooves signals the arrival of a another traditional horse-drawn carriage. Leading from the square is a network of cobbled streets and alleyways that contain beautiful Gothic churches and former palaces of the aristocracy. The impressive Royal Castle was once the home of the Polish Kings and is now a museum displaying tapestries, period furniture, portraits and other decorative collections. The narrow streets also lead to the ramparts and watchtowers of the medieval walls surrounding the old city. Hours of Operation: Phone:
