Warsaw is the largest city and the capital of one glorious country, Poland! Now your knowledge on Poland or Warsaw could be sparse, but let us help you a bit then. It’s just over 260 kilometers away from the beautiful (but cold) Baltic sea and 300 kilometers from Carpathian Mountains. It’s one of the largest Slavic cities (after Russian Moscow for example) so it counts the humongous population of 2.666 million residents. Now if you were asleep during an air-flight and would accidentally wake up above Warsaw, you would think it is probably New York, you ask why? Because along some larger European cities, Warsaw has one of the largest number of skyscrapers in Europe.

Warsaw started as two small but fortified Slavic settlements, Bródno and Jazdów and naturally medieval times were pretty turbulent so Jazdów was under siege and people from two settlements started a new site, a fishing village Warszowa. Slowly the village grew, became seat of some Masovian Dukes and Princes. Royal seat like a magnet drew economy to the settlement that quickly grew into a pretty medieval town rich in culture, trade and population. Later Germans really liked Warsaw so they annexed it by the Kingdom of Prussia, then later Russia got interested in it and Polish-Russian war of 1831 started. In world war 2 Germans returned and destroyed the whole old town. Luckily Warsaw was completely rebuilt along with it’s old town and this beautiful city was inscribed onto UNESCO’s World Heritage list!
