The comparison among Warsaw and some other Capital cities, like Rome, is embarassing. Warsaw has grown up "fast and furious". The metro stations are clean, the services are punctual and effective. the streets are clean. People are nice. You get an overall impression of safety, despite some drunk homeless, but really a few of them and not really giving the impressione to be dangerous. The monuments are clean and full of history. THere are a lot of nice shops and restaurants. Cycling paths all along the city. A must to see, and probably a great place to live!
