Warsaw, apart from being the financial centre of Poland, is also one of the most important cities for tourism. Here we suggest some must-see places which are definitely worth visiting.
Warsaw’s Old Town
Surrounded by the Barbican and the city walls, Warsaw’s Old Town is always a first port of call. It is the oldest part of Warsaw, founded in the 13th century and thoroughly reconstructed after the conflagration of the Second World War. In this part of the city you will find the Castle Square and the Royal Castle. Next to the aforementioned castle is the famous Sigismund Column. Many parts of the Old Town offer wonderful views of the Vistula River.
Krakowskie Przedmieście is Poland’s most famous street where you will find the Potocki Palace, the exclusive Hotel Bristol or the Basilica of the Holy Cross. The Presidential Palace is a perfect place for a commemorative photo, as is the Main Campus of the University of Warsaw. The whole street is full of benches, and is lined with flowerbeds and trees. The always-vibrant Nowy Świat street is a pedestrian-friendly extension of Krakowskie Przedmiescie, and boasts an array of restaurants, cafes and shops.
The Museum of the Warsaw Uprising
As the name suggests, it is a multilingual exhibition dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising, which took place in 1944. The museum provides a multimedia context to the historical events, and gives a real sense of the prevailing atmosphere prior to its outbreak.
The Palace of Culture and Science
The Palace of Culture and Science (where we at Nobell Congress organize international congresses) is the most recognizable building in Warsaw, and boasts a cinema, swimming pool, cafes, restaurants, exhibitions, theatres, museums, post office, shopping arcade, and many other attractions. On the 30th floor of the building there is an observation deck which affords a panoramic view of the entire city.
