Warsaw, Poland

Standing in the Old Town of Warsaw it’s not immediately obvious that this entire city was destroyed during World War II and completely rebuilt over a few following years. There are very few remnants of pre-war Warsaw, but around every corner and lining every street is the evidence of the strength and resilience needed to rebuild everything.

Walk along the Wisla River, which divides the city in half, and admire the architecture of the last few decades, then cross a bridge into the western side of the city where the majority of the sights are, along with busy restaurants, bars, and clubs. Head to the Royal Castle, and then St. John’s Cathedral, both of which were rebuilt after the war, and you’re visiting the two most prominent buildings in the city, and the places most synonymous with the city’s strength. Find a cosy restaurant close by and feast on a hearty meal of chicken soup, followed by a healthy portion of pierogi and maybe some Polish vodka - if encouraged by the locals.
