Best Things To Do in Warsaw 2020.

Warsaw centrally located in Europe. In the past called Paris of the East, now sometimes compared to Berlin. How is Warsaw now, after massive destruction during the uprisings. Warsaw is not only capital of Poland, is a city of people who lost a lot, remember a lot and built city based on their dreams.

1. Old Town

Badly destroyed during uprising 1944 and meticulously rebuilt by citizens of Warsaw.
Join to one of Free walking tours or just take a long walk through the Old Town streets and on your way visit St. John’s Archcathedral and neighbouring Church of the Gracious Mother of God. Look at amazingly designed doors by Igor Mitoraj.

2. Fall in love with  żurek, dumplings or duck in beetroots
