An old cultural and industrial centre,the city was for a long time one of the most sophisticated capitals of old Europe. But it is a city that has suffered a lot. By the end of world War II, it was nothing more than a pile of ruins. So the Old Town Square or the Warsaw Historical Museum are obligatory steps in visiting a booming city.
We can divide the city into two parts. The western shore, the most attractive, is the one where tourists go. The East is of no particular cultural or historical interest. If you like architecture, history is a city for you. The city’s main thoroughfare, the Royal Way, is lined with palaces, museums and galleries. It is considered one of the most beautiful avenues in Europe.
