    You have to see this place in any case. Although always very much is going on, consider always in mind, what has happened at this point and how wonderful it all was restored.

    Completely rebuilt after World War II, the Castle Square, the best place to start your adventure from Warsaw, Poland. Fun fact: the Royal Castle that we can admire in all its glory has been entirely rebuilt, after the war has become only one wall on the South side, close to the route.

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.
