Many people would think that the culture and history is in warsaw and that is untrue. There are some sights to see but I would not recommend spending more then 3 days there and rather go to krakao where there are more things to see and history to learn and where you can access the concentration camp auschwitz.
Warsaw is really really great! I personally think that it is often underrated and forgotten. It's not exactly beautiful city like Venice, Rome, or Madrid, but it is very rich of history and lots of place to visit.
I had a great time there, and people in Warsaw are really nice, which is a good bonus! English is widely spoken by younger population, and Russian by the older.
the shopping is great, the City centre + Old Town are very much worth exploring, but you really need to have your own car, or study the public transport to be able to explore the City at greater lengths
We stayed in a central location for 2 nights. The weather was good although showery. We walked to the old centre, along the river, visited the Copernicus Science centre which I would highly recommend.
Other than this there is nothing special we found about Warsaw.
The Old Town is culturally beautiful - very similar to usual European cities like Prague etc. The people are quite well versed in English and German which are the two languages I speak.
Public transport is excellent. There are buses, trains including metro, trams and it is cheap to get around - One can buy a ticket for 20 minutes which is for zone 1 which is all you really need and if you are a student its 50% - or for 75 minutes or for the day. Lovely city and very easy to get information required.
I have joined the free walking tour, you will get to know more about the history and also some interesting stories about the city, especially the culture and history about world war II.
Also, it is just so enjoyable to walk around the old town.
Good city planning, clear street sighs, very easy to go around Many museums and galleries The old town is very cute and many unique sovenior shops A ice skiing place in the old town
Warsaw is a beautiful city, sadly underrated from the biased western media. People should realize that Eastern Europe is beautiful, the people are warm-hearted and helpful.
Warsaw also has a large variety of different cuisines on offer for really affordable prices. So is shopping in Warsaw, very affordable. The old town is as beautiful as those of Vienna, Paris, etc.
Was there for 2 nights so it was quite a rush, didnt have time to see alot of the attractions. The attraction we managed to visit were of good quality and informative.
Locals are not the friendliest bunch, however the nightlife seems to be quite bustling.
Warsaw is a nice city and it is affordable to travel, things are not expensive and the sightseeing attraction places are very compact especially the old town area.
one of the world heritage sights, old city. re constructed after the WW ll, to the cracks of the walls still makes you think the pride of the polish people.
if you have chance to visit Krakow and Aushwitz (maybe salt mine too), you will discover Poland better.
A very safe , clean and beautiful city , shopping is the best things you can do when you see the price is so attractive compare with other EU countries.
Shopping is cheap, clothes, food, alcohol. Taxi drivers are the usual lot with not wanting to give change if the money you give them is a bit over.
However, they are helpful with luggage. Aside from the old town, market place And town square, not a lot of other attractions. But you can relax while touring here, and not feel like you should hurry.
There's so much to do in Warsaw. Perfect for the historically cultured traveller. A very rich history with good museums, galleries, and food.
Head to The Rising (Powstanie) Museum for WW2 history from Varsovian perspective. The old town, and barbakan castle are also must see. Order Zurek in bread from any classic polish restaurant. You wont be disappointed! Public transport works well and the road users in the city drive with care and attention. Road markings and direction signs are very clear. The new airport terminal is also completely hassle free.
Upon arrival via flight the journey has been very easy. The public transport is easy to use and clean being bus to metro/train.
The city is well kept with clean sign boards. The city people are very friendly in the shop, restaurant, coffee shop and etc. Please visit warsaw its a great city.
Warszaw has a relative small towncentre. You can easily walt from centrum via the parede street nowy swiat to the old town.
There are a lot of culture to watch
Very interesting. The parts of old and new town have plenty of historical sites and places of interest to keep you busy.
The castle, the square and all the museums. Be sure to check out the Chopin Museum. As well as Old Town. It has a beautiful square to wander about. The people seemed friendly enough and the food was excellent!
I was there late july and it was uncommonly hot, over 30 degress C. The business center is a clean and safe area.
rich culture and history background. however the people here are not as friendly as the other European countries.
I appreciate the development of the city, but traditionally the renovated Old Centre/Rynek is the best
