Warsaw Holidays

Almost entirely demolished by the Nazis during World War II, Warsaw has since risen from the ashes and reestablished itself as the capital of Poland. Not surprisingly, the postwar architecture of Warsaw is rather bleak, a legacy of the Soviet Union’s iron grip on the region. However, the Polish rebuilt the historical old town in the Śródmieście ... Read more

Love the vibe in the old town. Venture to the hip street called Nowy Swiat also the newly open promenade along the Vistula river.

The town is a bit sketchy. I hiked all over the place and had a lot of incredible food. After about 40k hike through the national park I saw a drunk guy get picked up by his friends and a block later he was in a fight with the driver. It got kind of bloody the mutual friend in the passenger seat never got out of the car and kept laughing.

Warsaw is huge and really spread out. Most of the tourist attractions are within the Old Town, which at least is walkable. There is a good network of city bikes

Warsaw is not particularly attractive because of all the Soviet style buildings but it's history and the re-created old town area are interesting.

There will be nicer areas of Warsaw, but I wasn't here very long (just a couple of hours!) and the Warsaw I saw seemed very run down and depressing. After getting the train from Amsterdam we arrived at Warszawa Centalna then went to the Warsaw Uprising Museum to kill some time before heading off to Krakow. It was not the most luxurious city but it has a lot of history and an interesting story. The zebra crossings in Warsaw are also really interesting, a significant number were repainted to look like pianos for the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth in 1810. I wouldn't go back in a hurry, but I have only seen a tiny part of what is a huge city.

This is a large modern city with tall buildings and a large reconstructed old town. The city was leveled at the end of WWII. Lots of new construction taking place. Reasonably priced restaurants and taxis.

Warsaw is full of history, but history has been tough on this town in the last century. If was largely destroyed in World War II and reconstructed later. Now out of the grip of the USSR, it's starting to modernize.

Studying in Warsaw is one of the best period in my life. We are young and it's very important not to waste our teen time. Warsaw is for creative, fair, free person. Warsaw inspires.
