Warsaw

Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is an extraordinary city that distinguishes for its past and its present. Warsaw is definitely a city full of history and culture, something that easily distinguishes from the city’s current appearance. During the 2nd World War Warsaw’s 85% was destroyed and the city was rebuilt from the beginning, the palaces and the churches were constructed again and today they are all in a good condition. Warsaw is a modern city, a live metropolis while at the same time it is unusually green, with the ¼ of its total extent covered by parks, trees and flowers. 2010 was the year Warsaw celebrated the 200 years from the birth of Frederic Chopin and the city became the centre of the celebrations in memory of this admirable composer. Moreover in 2012 Warsaw hosted the UEFA Championship (European Football Championship - EURO 2012). Warsaw’s symbol is the mermaid and it had been the city’s coat of arms for more than 600 years.
