Warsaw is the capital of Poland. The city's diverse architecture - from Gothic churches and classicist palaces to Soviet-era blocks of flats and modern skyscrapers - reflects its long, turbulent history. Warsaw's old town was rebuilt after being destroyed in World War II. In its center is the market square with pastel-colored houses and many cafes. The Warsaw Mermaid statue in the center of the square is the symbol of the city.

Warsaw, the modern capital of Poland

There are several good reasons to visit the city on the Vistula. After all, in hardly any other city in Poland has the cityscape changed at such a rapid pace since the fall of the Wall.

Modern skyscrapers rise up here between the remnants of "old Poland". Some buildings even come from renowned architects such as Daniel Libeskind and Helmut Jahn. Chic palaces, beautiful old buildings and depressing evidence of the past: the sights of Warsaw act like a magnifying glass for European history.


Warsaw's old town is an absolute must-see. Today this forms the heart of the Polish capital. The history of the old town is more than impressive and inspiring. It has even been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just like the old town, the Warsaw Royal Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Anyone taking a tour of the castle will get exciting insights into the magnificent apartments and halls of the former Polish kings.

The Palace of Culture is still the tallest building in Poland. And the palace breaks another record: the second largest clock in Europe hangs on the tower of the Kulturpalast. The palace has a total of 42 floors and 3,288 rooms. As a visitor, you can take the elevator to the 30th floor and enjoy the incredible panoramic view over Warsaw from a height of 114 m.

A little further outside the city center, another royal palace is waiting for your visit. The Wilanow Palace is a restored palace from the 17th century. The Warsaw people also named the palace as the Polish Versailles.

The Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw is a highlight not only for those who want to expand their knowledge. Visitors can carry out experiments on their own, which explain the basic laws of the natural sciences.

The Nozyk Synagogue is also an indispensable part of Jewish history. We are talking about the last remaining synagogue in Warsaw.

One of the main attractions in Warsaw on the Royal Route is St. Anne's Church. The elaborately designed church from the 1770s impresses with a pompous exterior decoration and a gilded interior in the baroque style.

Pure art and culture

If you are looking for Warsaw's history, you will not pass the City Museum of the Polish capital (Muzeum Warszawy). The Warsaw Museum is fully dedicated to the local history of the city.

Another tip for an exciting museum excursion is without a doubt the Warsaw Uprising Museum (POLIN Muzeum Historii Żydów Polskich). The museum is located in what was then the capital's power station and is dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising from August 1 to October 2, 1944.

The Museum of the History of Polish Jews, as the long name suggests, deals with the history of the Jews in Poland. This museum is right next to the Monument to the Heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto. This means that both sights are located in the former Jewish quarter of Warsaw.

Relaxation in Warsaw

If you are looking for some peace and quiet after sightseeing and culinary expeditions, you will find it in the picturesque Lazienki Park. In summer the park impresses with colorful flowers and lush green. But it's most romantic here in winter. Then the festive lighting creates a unique atmosphere.

With 80 hectares, Lazienki Park is the largest and one of the most beautiful parks in Warsaw. At the same time, it houses other sights, including the main attraction of the park, the Lazienki Palace. It owes its nickname “Water Palace” to its location on an artificially created island that appears to float on the lake.

Visitors come across two bridges to the no less impressive interior of the palace. A ballroom, the Salomonsaal and sculptures of numerous Polish kings are just as worth seeing as the baths.

During a tour of the park, you will also come across the theater on the island, a Chopin monument, the old orangery and the Myslewicki Palace.
