For a city that was almost completely flattened during WWII, Warsaw, Poland, has built itself up into a hub of culture and vitality. The city’s old town has been so meticulously rebuilt since the war that UNESCO have declared it a World Heritage Site and what you see around you, although medieval in appearance, is relatively new. Visit the Warsaw Uprising Museum to learn about the events that led to the city’s destruction and wander through the former Jewish ghetto area where, from 1939 onwards, around 380,000 Jews – one third of the city’s population – were forcibly crowded into. Stroll through the scenic Royal Lazienki, the largest park in Warsaw, and admire the ornate buildings and monuments found within, including the stunning Palace on the Water. Book your hostel for May if you want to experience Orange Warsaw Festival which features some of the biggest names in music.
