The capital of Poland (Polish: Warszawa) is by far the largest city in Poland with a population of 1.7 million people, it is part of the region Masovia and is crossed by the Vistula river. The city has been the capital of Poland since the 16th century. Warsaw is a great business and leisure destination.

The capital of Poland was practically rebuilt from scratch after World War II. Warsaw’s vibrant business downtown takes pride in its many skyscrapers and ambitious plans to build more. The catchy skyline is still dominated by the enormous Palace of Culture and Science – Stalin’s donation to the nation. Warsaw is a world in itself, with an eastern European flavour. Do not miss the beautiful Old Town, the Royal Route, the Chopin museum, several magnificent palaces and the former Jewish ghetto.
