The City

Warsaw is located in the very heart of the country and close to the center of Europe. There are few places with equally interesting history and relics of the past, or places where the past intertwines with the present. This gives the city a unique character. Warsaw has been Poland's capital for the past four centuries, and is the largest city in the country. This lively metropolis is the administrative, business and cultural center of Poland. It is here that the diplomatic missions of other states can be found alongside the seats of political, professional, civic and religious organizations. Learn more about Warsaw.
