Warsaw

In Warsaw, public benches serenade you with Chopin…

Warsaw is the capital and largest city of Poland. Warsaw has suffered the worst history could throw at it, including virtual destruction at the end of World War II – and survived. As a result, it’s a fascinating collection of neighbourhoods and landmarks.
