Warsaw, Poland's historic capital city, has done much to shake off its Soviet-era image, transforming from a concrete metropolis to one of the biggest destinations in Europe. Take a city break in Warsaw and experience a dynamic cosmopolitan city, home to some of the finest dining, nightlife and shopping in Eastern Europe, and a wealth of museums, gardens and historical treasures.
Attractions in Warsaw
The first stop on a holiday in Warsaw is the beautiful Old Town. Rebuilt from rubble, although you’d never know it, the Old Town is a lovely blend of Renaissance, Baroque and Gothic style buildings. The main draw is the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Market Square, the bustling social heart of the city.
There is an excellent choice of museums for you to enjoy on a Warsaw city break, the finest of which include the Warsaw Uprising Museum, Warsaw Historical Museum and the National Museum. The Warsaw Uprising Museum tells the astonishing story of the Polish resistance during WWII and is absolutely unmissable during a city break to Warsaw. The Warsaw Historical Museum charts the rise of this magnificent city, from its ancient beginnings to the present day. The largest museum in the city, the National Museum houses an outstanding collection of age-old artefacts, architectural gems and paintings from all over the world.
A deeply-moving and necessary attraction for any city break in Warsaw is the former Jewish Ghetto, now Warsaw's most famous landmark. Although mostly razed to the ground after the Ghetto Uprising in 1943, the remnants of the ghetto walls still stand as a poignant testament to the shocking separation of wartime Warsaw. Visitors looking to understand the full history of this incredible city cannot miss this out of an itinerary.
Warsaw is also home to one Europe’s most beautiful public parks, the 18th century Lazienkowski. An idyllic place to spend a relaxing day in the city, the park is home to an abundance of wildlife including peacocks and mandarin ducks, and some of the city’s finest architecture such as the Neoclassical Palace on the Water. Summer sees classical concerts held beneath the stature of Frédéric Chopin, one of the city’s most loved sons.
