Located on the shores of the Vistula River, Warsaw is Poland’s capital and its largest city. With over 3 million residents, Warsaw stands as the seventh most populous European metro area.
Warsaw’s spirit is best captured in the city’s nickname: Phoenix City. It was able to put itself back on its feet after World War II, which destroyed 85% of the city.
Its rich culture attracts over 10 million visitors a year. Some of the most prominent spots include:
- the Old Town (a UNESCO heritage site)
- Royal Łazienki Park,
- Copernicus Science Center

Warsaw gave birth to many prominent people of world fame. The composer Frederic Chopin and the first female Nobel prize Winner, Marie Curie, hail from here.
Varsovians have a specific dialect called gwara warszawska. It has roots in the Masovian dialect but has also picked up from Russian, German, and Yiddish.
Warsaw is home to over 30,000 international companies that span across all industry types. It continues to be a business magnet for big players and startups alike. The Globalization and World Cities study (GaWC) ranked Warsaw as alpha- city. This puts Warsaw side by side with cities like Amsterdam, Seoul, and San Francisco.
