Phoenix City
Warsaw draws big crowds with its seemingly unstoppable energy, exemplified by the city's explosive nightlife and thriving music scene. Poland's capital and largest city, this modern metropolis of nearly two million people counts as one of the world's most important cultural, political, and economic centers. Nearly flattened by the bombing raids of World War II, the city managed to rebuild and reinvent itself during the final years of the 20th century, replacing drab communist-era housing blocks with innovative public squares, green parks, and contemporary office buildings. Begin your Warsaw adventure at the historical old town, a World Heritage Site known for its medieval architecture and atmospheric backstreets. Use our Poland sightseeing tool to arrange your visit to Warsaw and any other destinations in Poland that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
