Warsaw Print E-mail
 Warsaw (almost 2 million inhabitants), the capital city of Poland, offers you all opportunities that can be offered by the most important city in the country. All governmental institutions and foreign embassies are located here, what makes Warsaw one of the political centers in this part of Europe. You will find here something for the soul: theaters, concert halls, cinemas (Warsaw hosts a Film Festival annually), parks, but also something for the body, like big shopping malls, restaurants, student pubs and clubs. Warsaw is going to host Football Eurocup in 2012, and what’s more, organizes a WTA Warsaw Open tennis tournament every year playing a big role in the world of sport.

University of Warsaw is located in the middle of Royal Route (Trakt Królewski), on the way from Wilanow Palace to the Old Town and Royal Castle. It’s also close to Nowy Świat, a very popular street with shops and restaurants. You should also definitely see Palace on Water in Łazienki Park, Palace of Culture and Science and Warsaw Uprising Museum. Suburban districts like Kabaty, Ursynów are typical residential areas. Praga, laying on the left side of Vistula River, which was not destroyed during II world war, has kept the unique atmosphere and is becoming more and more poplar.

When you live in Central Poland, you can also visit seaside, Mazurian Lakes as well as the mountains in the South.
