Welcome to WARSZAWA
an extra service of European City Guide / ECG

Information about WARSZAWA Warsaw is one of the youngest capitals in Europe. It became the Polish capital after Cracow in 16th century. By the end of World War II, roughly 85% of the city lay in ruins and most of the population had been killed, deported or sent to concentration camps. More than a third of Warsaw’s pre-war population was Jewish, although there are hardly any traces of this heritage remaining, as the city’s prosperous Jewish community was decimated by the end of the war. Much of Warsaw’s historic centre was painstakingly recreated in the years after World War II, in a move by the communist authorities, which surprised the citizens of the city as it much as it did the West. Today with bustling Polish economy and freedom from communist rule - the city has undergone a huge transformation process. Many old communist buildings gave way to modern sky scrapers, dillapidating old town was restored, entertainment and services transformed to match that of other western capitals. The city also boasts many green spaces, with leafy parks where rowing boats cruise past outdoor cafés, and free classical concerts attract crowds in a scene far removed from the Communist-era images of Warsaw. It is very much Poland’s largest city and the nation’s economic, cultural and educational hub, a role that looks set to expand further now that the country finally has joined the European Union.
