Warsaw is full of history and culture. Stroll along the Vistula, celebrate the music of Chopin, or explore the city’s past in one of the many WWII museums and memorials. Warsaw was almost completely destroyed during WWII, but the city’s historic centre was rebuilt using 18th century paintings as a guide and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
