I thought I would be overwhelmed and intimidated by the Polish capital, but I can say that neither was true. Nearly the entire city of Warsaw was razed by the Nazis. After that it was painstakingly rebuilt after the War. I didn't get to spend too much time in Warsaw, but it's a city that could be appreciated with a little exploration and an open mind.

This is a large modern city with tall buildings and a large reconstructed old town. The city was leveled at the end of WWII. Lots of new construction taking place. Reasonably priced restaurants and taxis.

Warsaw is full of history, but history has been tough on this town in the last century. If was largely destroyed in World War II and reconstructed later. Now out of the grip of the USSR, it's starting to modernize.

I really like Warsaw, but it's part of Europe’s biggest scam: its “old towns” aren’t that old. All the “old” buildings in Warsaw are younger than Disneyland! Warsaw’s Old Town didn’t just get a face-lift, it was rebuilt from scratch, starting with the cornerstone. The “thirteenth century” Royal Castle that overlooks the Old Town was rebuilt from the ground up just a few decades ago. What a rip-off! Yes, the Poles were meticulous at reproducing the old buildings and they recycled some of the original material, but most of it is brand new. It’s hard to tell nowadays, but just 65 years ago most of European cities (except Paris, Prague, Rome, Venice, and a few others) were blown to smithereens. Nevertheless, Europeans have created this myth that they’ve got old buildings. American tourists dutifully stare with their mouths open, believing that they’re looking deep into European history, but what they’re really looking at is something that is younger than most American homes. Meanwhile, Europeans come to America, look at our buildings and sniff, “You Americans have no history.”
