Destroyed and rebuilt several times through its long and turbulent history, Warsaw is a mixing pot of architectural styles and historical detail. Imposing Soviet-era monoliths tower over Art Nouveau apartments, neoclassical palaces compete with the painstakingly rebuilt red brick buildings of the old town and, among it all, modern skyscrapers rise above the rooftops. On arrival, visitors will discover an energetic and eclectic cultural scene, with plenty of museums, entertainment venues and galleries to enjoy.
The laid-back bohemian hangout of Sródmiescie, with its cafés and boutiques, will prove an excellent place to grab a coffee and watch the world go by. Or, if you want a lazy day by the water, head down to the Vistula River and spend the afternoon sunning yourself on one of the beautiful city beaches.
