Discover Warsaw – the city that refused to die

Warsaw, the capital city of Poland since 1596, is beautifully sited on the major Polish river, the Vistula. Founded in  the early 14th century, it soon became one of the most important towns of the Mazovia Region.   In the course of time, Warsaw gradually gained political and social importance and King Zygmunt III Waza transferred the Polish capital to Warsaw from Krakow. Profiting from its position in the centre of the country,  Warsaw became the residential city of the monarchs. Their power and ambition is commemorated by the many palaces and mansions situated mainly on the edge of the Vistula escarpment and along the present Krakowskie Przedmieście Street. Thanks to the last King of Poland, Stanisław August Poniatowski, who was a great patron of culture and science and who left his imprint on many palaces, churches and other buildings, Warsaw became one of the most progressive cultural centres in Europe.
Because of its capital status Warsaw needed to defend itself many times, most of all during the two World Wars. The reconstruction of Warsaw became  for all Poles a matter of honour and was conducted with unprecedented determination.
To this day, Warsaw  symbolises for Poles the hard fight for survival.  The Warsaw Siren, on the coat of arms, holding her sword and raised shield, is a personification of this fight.
Today’s Warsaw is a city of deserved splendor and prestige. It is an important administrative, political and economic centre as well as the home of internationally recognised cultural and scientific institutions, many historical places and beautiful churches. It is the capital of a country known to have played a leading role in the breakdown of the Iron Curtain and has subsequently become one of the most successful and advanced of post-communist countries. With its modern appearance it is to some extent a new city, but at the same time  an old one with a rich and beautiful tradition formed  over the last 700 years. Warsaw is on the UNESCO list of cultural treasures of the world’s heritage.
