Warsaw, Poland

Poland is situated in the heart of Europe sharing its western borders with Germany and the Czech Republic. Life in the capital city Warsaw is a typical urban experience – a never-ending list of diverse intellectual and cultural events. The capital's prime attraction is the Old Town, which is entered in the World List of Cultural and National Heritage of UNESCO. The Old Town Market Square, Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street, the Castle Square and the huge number of parks for walking or running are just a few of the ways to enjoy Warsaw.
