Our flights to Warsaw will bring you to a surprisingly lively European capital in the middle of Poland. Today’s central historic city center is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage, so it would be a good point to start your exploration. At the center is the old market place, today a meeting point for the locals and encircled by cafes and restaurants. In the middle of the market place is a bronze figure of Warsaw’s emblem, a mermaid with sword and shield. Legend has it that she will always come to the aid of the city when it is attacked. The old Palace and its front square are right around the corner. From here the Kings Way starts and will bring you to a lot of the most impressive houses, palaces and churches of Warsaw. You will pass the old city walls of the 14th century, even some of the city gates are still there and can be visited inside. Then the road goes for many miles along the university, the Presidents Palace and many other highlights to the Wilanow Palace at the end of the road.

The highest and best known building is the Culture Palace which Stalin gave as a present to the people of Poland. The enormous tower houses cinemas, theaters, bars and museums. It is a good place to get an overview over the city. Try to take a trip to the Holy Cross Church, where the heart of the famous composer Frédéric Chopin is kept. This famous son of Warsaw was buried in Paris, but wanted to have his heart sent to his hometown. To get your energy back try the polish specialties like Bigos, a hearty stew, or Pierogi, the polish version of ravioli.
