Plac Defilad 1, 00-901 Warszawa, Poland

Pretty much all those who live close by hate this building, the tallest in Poland and certainly the most prominent in Warsaw. It was built by the Soviets, and thus is seen as a sign of unwelcome Russian dominance.
It’s also said to greatly detract from the city’s aesthetic appeal. A running joke goes that the only place to tolerate the ...

This walk is a good way to get to know Warsaw before you actually go and check anything out. A series of interconnected streets take you past some of the city’s most significant attractions, so you’ll know what to come back to later. That said, it also make for quite a romantic walk. It starts off from Plac Zamkowy at the castle and lea...
The Church as it exists today looks the same as it did in the sixteenth century, but that’s the result of careful preservation and reconstruction.
