Warsaw — Europe´s great Survivor
Warsaw is a truly fascinating city with its Old and New Towns, protected old architecture alongside modern shopping malls, and love of culture mingled with a Communist disdain for all things beautiful, the city is a mixture of numerous influences and historic events. Constantly evolving and changing – while fiercely mindful of its turbulent past – there are many ways to explore this uniquely East European city. Paradoxically, Warsaw’s Old Town is only 50 years old. After World War II (90% of it was destroyed) proudly and laboriously reconstructed to its present form. In 1980 it was placed on the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage sites. One of the most often photographed places in Warsaw is the monument of Frederic Chopin in the beautiful Lazienki Park. On summer Sundays you can listen to a piano concert of this great Polish composer.
