The modern and thriving capital city of Warsaw is situated on the banks of the mighty Vistula, Poland's largest river. Like many European cities it suffered greatly from bombing during WWII and has been reconstructed into a very modern city in the decades since. Even the atmospheric Old Town is new, and the traditional burgher houses have carefully reconstructed facades in order to keep the original character. Enjoy strolling through the interesting alleys and squares of the Old Town, especially Castle Square, away from the bustle of the city centre. The tall skyscrapers that dominate the city skyline are evidence of Warsaw's economic success in recent years; it is now the country's largest metropolis with an abundance of great shopping facilities, varied entertainment, popular nightlife scene and numerous cultural activities and venues. Top of the list of visitors attractions are the beautiful 17th century Lazienki Palace and Park, the Baroque style Wilanow Palace, gardens and its Poster Museum and the Warsaw Rising Museum that pays homage to those who fought for independence of the their country in 1944.
