Warsaw is very well-known for its uprising in 1944, after which the city was destroyed. The museum dedicated to this topic is highly educational and eye-opening. However, there are other ways to learn about Polish history and culture; for instance, by visiting the National Museum – a huge gallery recommended to any art-nerd, or Frederic Chopin’s interactive museum, which I personally really enjoyed.
Nevertheless, you’ll make great memories also by simply taking a walk by the Vistula river or through the lovely narrow streets of Old town looking at the colourful building all around. To get an even better view, you should go to the very top of the Palace of Culture and Science
Another important part of every trip is the local food! In Warsaw, it is not only cheap but also delicious – what a great combination. Everyone knows Poland for its pierogi but I would also suggest trying out zapiekanka – the Polish pizza or toasted open-face sandwich. And anyone with a sweet tooth won’t regret getting gofry.
Warsaw is an incredible city where there’s history and modern world combined and you'll want to come back for more.
