Welcome to Warsaw

Warsaw is a remarkable city. Despite sustaining massive amounts of damage during the Second World War, the capital city of Poland rose from the ashes to become the beautiful place it is today and a deliriously exuberant major tourist destination. Located on the Vistula River, it abounds with charming buildings representing all historic periods and European architectural styles.
It is a city of astonishing contrasts and variety which can be discovered in numerous ways. Due to the relatively compact nature of the city’s heart, it’s easy to explore on foot. A bicycle is another pleasing alternative, or you could take a hop-on, hop-off bus tour. You can take a tour of the many fascinating historic sites or embark on the Frederic Chopin trail, visiting the many places in the capital having significance in relation to the great composer. This city has a wealth of attractions to offer, as you will discover when you book a holiday in Warsaw with JiveHippo.travel. There is so much to do in this captivating city of endless drive and energy.

Things to Do / Must-See Places

It’s astonishing to think that Warsaw’s Old Town is just fifty years old. Following the end of the war, it was painstakingly and faithfully reconstructed, with the eventual reward being the reclamation of the city’s heritage and UNESCO World Heritage Site status being awarded in 1980. At the beating heart of this remarkable part of the capital is the Market Place and its many excellent shops, restaurants and cafes. Here you can still see some traces of the city’s pre-20th-century history, such as the medieval city walls. Here you will also see the 16th-century Barbican, a former fortified outpost, and St. John’s Cathedral, one of the major sites of the 1944 Warsaw Uprising — an event which is chronicled in its own museum.
Warsaw is also a place of much greenery; indeed, some 25% of the city’s area consists of royal gardens and grand parks, including the exquisite Lazienki Park, where open-air Chopin concerts take place. Once a royal hunting ground, it is now a place of perfectly manicured greenery with a palace, an amphitheatre and various picturesque follies. A major meeting place for both locals and tourists is Castle Square, a regular venue for street entertainers and concerts. Here you will find the Royal Castle, the former official residence of the Polish monarchy and now a superb national museum.
As expected in the city that gave us Frederic Chopin, music is very much a part of the ambience of Warsaw. There are many venues offering a full and varied programme of concerts, including the Polish National Opera and the National Philharmonic Hall. There are also plenty of vibrant jazz clubs and rock venues. In fact, whatever your musical tastes, you will find something to enjoy in Warsaw. Art lovers will enjoy the Carroll Porczynski Collection Museum, the home of the largest private art collection in the country, which includes examples of work by such greats as Renoir and Van Gogh.
Perhaps the city’s crowning architectural glory, however, is the Wilanow Palace. Dating back to the 17th century, it survived the destruction of wartime relatively unscathed and displays a variety of architectural styles.
