    The most important part of the Old Town, the main square is surrounded by beautiful town houses and full of restaurants and cafes. Definitely a place to go to if you are in Warsaw - especially if you've never been here before!

    Definitely a must-go place when visiting the Old Town. So sad that we came late on Saturday and had to visit without audio guide.

    The Palace of Culture and Science (also known as PKiN) is a landmark high-rise building in central Warsaw. A gift from the Soviet Union it was constructed from 1952 to 1955 and has a total height of 237 metres (778 ft) and is the second tallest building in Poland. PKiN houses various public and cultural institutions such an eight screen cinema, theatres, libraries, sports clubs, university faculties, and authorities of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Four 6.3 metre (21 ft) clock faces were added to the top of the building ahead of the millennium celebrations in 2000 and the clocks began working on 31st December 2000. Since 2007, it has been enlisted in the Registry of Objects of Cultural Heritage. Despite being such a big Warsaw landmark PKiN is a highly controversial building for some, and is often viewed as a reminder of Soviet influence over the Polish People's Republic, especially due to its construction during mass violations of human rights under Stalin. There have been calls to demolish it which having visited it I feel would be a big shame. It is beautifully illuminated at night and during the day a trip up to the observation deck to get 360' views of Warsaw is worth the minimal cost entry ticket.

    The National Stadium was built for Euro 2012 in the place of the Millennium Stadium ... As for a stadium with such a large cubature, it stands out among European arenas because it is close to the center and, additionally, surrounded by trees ... At night it is lit in the colors of the Polish flag. There are many sports or cultural events, there are also large office spaces and a large number of parking spaces. As a two-time participant of a very large event, I must admit that the stadium is very audience-friendly. The facility has impressive facilities that can be explored during one of the available sightseeing options.

    Although summer tnite is the best place to visit as they do nightly shows, it is still worth a visit during spring and autumn as the fountain is on and very nice to see. There are also nice views along the river.

    What a lovely attraction right the park entrance!! Chopin Monument in Łazienki Park is a prominent structure that you can notice immediately after getting inside the park. There are live musical performances organised here on weekends. Summer evenings here are such a treat for every passer-by. There are musical benches playing Chopin's lovely work! The park is a tremendous beauty and totally worth a lazy stroll alone or with friends. A top attraction in Warsaw that I'd recommend to everyone. Go for it guys 😎

    Warsaw, Poland is a fascinating city with hundreds of monuments and statues scattered across the city. The 33 foot tall monument Pomnik Powstania Warszawskiego (Warsaw Uprising Monument) Located in front of the Supreme Court of Poland Building in Krasiński Square is a remarkable monument dedicated to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising against the Nazis. This bronze monument sculpted by Wincenty Kućma and architect Jacek Budynby is divided into two different parts. One section displays a group of fighters engaged in combat, running from a collapsing building. The second part of this monument reflects individuals descending into a manhole. The utility access hole led to the Warsaw sewer system and was utilized to evacuate fighters from the “Old Town” to the City Center during World War II. This memorial dedicated to the Warsaw Uprising, was constructed in the Socialist Realism style commonly found in the Soviet era of Poland. This monument is impressive and reflects the fighting sprit of the Polish people and the desire for freedom. A remarkable monument that should be seen by all.

    This restored part of the Old Town walls is definitely worth a visit. You do get a sense of what the perimeter of Old Town once looked like (there are also restored parts of the wall) and local artisans sell their wares on the small bridge in the Barbican.

    In the middle of a large, attractive square, located in front of the main entrance to the History of the Polish Jewry Museum, one will find a haunting memorial dedicated to the “Heros of the Ghetto Uprising.” This memorial is located at the center of Warsaw old Jewish Ghetto. This monument was erected by the artist Natan Rapaport in April 1948, on the 5th anniversary of the outbreak of the ghetto residents’ revolt against the German army. It should be noted that the artist used black Swedish marble that the Germans brought for the purpose of erecting a monument in honor of their "victory" over the Jews in the war. The monument stands 11 meters (36 ft) tall is made from labradorite stone. This monument not only represents the Ghetto Wall, but also the holiest Jewish site, The Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. A bronze sculpture of men, women, and children, armed with guns and Molotov cocktails is displayed on the western portion of the monument. Mordechal Anielewicx, the leader of the Jewish Combat Organization during the Warsaw Uprising is shown on the central frieze. The eastern part of the monument shows the persecution of Jews at the hands of the Nazi German oppressors. A replica of the monument can be found at the “Yad Vashem” square in Jerusalem. Israel. A remarkable memorial that will leave an impression on you. This is one of those monuments that every visitor to Warsaw must visit. As a Jew, I can only say “Rest in Peace & Never Again.” נוח על משכבך בשלום. לעולם לא עוד.
