Welcome to Warsaw, the capital of Poland, a city worth seeing; a city that will captivate you with its own, distinctive atmosphere. Warsaw is unique, located in the center of Europe, at the trade route junction between East and West, and North and South of the continent. You will surely be enchanted by the fascinating history and atmosphere of this magnificent city, which combines the influences of Western and Eastern Europe, and where tradition meets modernity.

We invite you to get to know this city full of contrasts, where historical monuments and modern architecture coexist in every street. Historical palaces, buildings and architectural complexes, destroyed during World War II, were reconstructed so faithfully that it is impossible to distinguish the originals from their authentic counterparts. The typical urban construction is interspersed with open spaces of green squares and municipal parks.

We encourage you to visit this vibrant European metropolis. You will bring back unforgettable memories. And to those who decide to stay a bit longer in this city, Warsaw will continue to delight you.

WARSAW TOP 10


Old Town

Walking the streets of the Old Town and New Town allows you to rest from the bustle of central city life. Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cozy cafés create a unique sense of history, and in the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.

Łazienki Królewskie Park-Palace Complex

The park and palace complex at Łazienki is one of the most beautiful of this type in Europe. Established in the 17th century, the landscape gardens feature many interesting architectural monuments, the most important of which includes the Palace on the Island built for King Stanislaw August Poniatowski - Poland´s last monarch. It served as his summer residence and was famous for the Thursday dinners, splendid affairs for the country´s literary and scholastic elite.

Wilanów Park-Palace Complex

This is the summer residence of King Jan III Sobieski and then Augustus II as well as subsequent aristocratic families. It is an excellent representation of European Baroque at its height and homage to the former greatness of the Republic. The palace is surrounded by a grandiose, two level Italian, baroque garden and a romantic English-style park. Wilanów is the venue of important cultural events and concerts. The former stables now house the Poster Museum.

Palace of Culture and Science

Completed in 1955 as a ‘gift from the Soviet people´, the building is the embodiment of Socialist Realist architecture. It is still the tallest building in Poland and acts as a cultural centre accommodating theatres, museums, a cinema and a concert hall. The highest viewing platform in Warsaw, on the 30th floor, offers an excellent panoramic view of the city.

Warsaw Rising Museum

Opened in 2004, on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising, the museum pays tribute to all those who fought and died for their country´s independence. Housed in a former tramway power station, the modern museum guides visitors through interactive displays, video footage and photographs.

Copernicus Science Centre

Copernicus Science Centre is an institution created and financed by the Capital City of Warsaw, Ministry of Science and Higher Education and Ministry of National Education. It contains over 350 interactive exhibits that enable visitors to single-handedly carry out experiments and discover the laws of science for themselves. The Centre is the largest institution of its type in Poland and one of the most advanced in Europe. The first module of the museum was opened on 5 November 2010; the second module is scheduled to open in 2011.

University of Warsaw Library

The facade of the building, resembling a line of open books, is one of the most interesting examples of contemporary architecture in Warsaw. The roof garden is open to the public. This is where Think Poland office is located!

Praga District

Right-bank Warsaw has recently acquired the status of an artistic district. The post-industrial buildings and townhouses have been turned into art studios, theatres and fashionable clubs. Ząbkowska Street or 11 Listopada are perfect illustrations of the revival going on in the only district of Warsaw that remained fairly intact after the war.

Places related to Fryderyk Chopin

Fryderyk Chopin is undoubtedly the best known resident of Warsaw. He spent the first 20 years of his life in the city. Here he studied music, learned the manners of society and gave his first concerts. Walking the streets of Warsaw you will pass buildings where he stayed or visited. There are many places where homage is paid to his talent, and Warsaw boasts the world´s largest collection of Chopin memorabilia.

Education

Warsaw is one of the largest and most important education centers in the country. It is home to 230 000 students attending over 60 institutions of higher education. By the number of students Warsaw takes the lead over Krakow and Wroclaw. The most prestigious universities in the capital cities include: Warsaw University, Warsaw University of Technology (SGGW University of Life Sciences and SGH Warsaw School of Economics).

Warsaw University for years has remained the largest university in the country and a leading academic institution in Europe. The main part of the campus is located on the Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street, not far away from the Royal Castle and the Old Town. If you walk through the historic campus and a park towards the Vistula River you will reach the brand new Warsaw University Library, a stunning award-winning building with a gorgeous roof-top botanical garden. This is where Think Poland office is located.

The Warsaw University of Technology is one of the leading institutes of technology in Poland, and one of the largest in Central Europe. There are over 35,000 students being trained there on annual basis in 19 faculties covering all major fields of science and technology. According to the survey conducted in 2008 by the Polish daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita the graduates of Warsaw University of Technology make up the highest percentage of managers and executives in Polish companies. Every ninth president among the top 500 corporations in Poland has graduated from the school!

Whichever University you choose for yourself in Warsaw, you can be sure you will receive a quality education!
