an industrialized city, but plenty of history too. In the main city you can see the cultural center, it s like a big ben, but very popular, downstairs you have cinemas, restaurants and a disco club. In the old town you have the main square which is amazing!! (believe me). It was all reconstructed after the 2WW, because it was totally destroyed, but it looks amazing
Fondest memory: In the pic you have a view of the cultural center by the night
Favorite thing: Walk down the main drag that runs from the Royal Castle all the way down to Lazienki Park and beyond. This street is called different names at different points, but the section that's pictured in my photo above is called Nowy Swiat. Here, it's all fancy shops and cafes. A little farther north, it's lined with bookshops and student hangouts as it runs past the university. And a little farther south, it's Embassy Row. All in all, a great place to get a feeling for 19th-century Central European style and society.
Favorite thing: Of course this map is very small and very general and it won't help you when you are in Warsaw, but can give you some view on the main streets here.
Favorite thing: Natolin is where I live. It's one of Warsaw's 'bedrooms'. New apartments here are quite expensive. And who says that blocks of flats and their surroundings cannot look nice?!
Fondest memory: ....hhhmmm, looking at the car coming down from the tall building....or is the car just hanging there...?
Down-town of Warszaw is very very GREAT.
Fondest memory: I like to be in centre of Warszaw and see huge buildings, many people and traffic.
