When visiting Warsaw’s Old Town, you’ll want to make sure to have plenty of space for photos. A maze of cobbled streets and quaint pastel buildings, if it weren’t for the people you’d feel like you’d traveled in time. With so many great spots to stop for a bite to eat and drink, it’s easy to lose a day here. The Old Town is a must for any visitor to Warsaw as it captures the history of the city, as well as its vibrant culture.
WINDOW INTO THE PAST
Poland’s history is tragic. Events of the last hundred years have been unkind to the country and this was heavily felt in Warsaw. Looking back, it’s inspiring to see how far Warsaw and its people have come. This history can be explored in so many areas. To name a few, you can visit the Warsaw Rising Museum, Polin Museum for the history of the Polish Jews, the Jewish Cemetery, Jewish Ghetto Memorial and the Warsaw Uprising Monument. These sites not only showcase a dark past, but the ability of people to unite and overcome extreme adversity as well.
