There will be nicer areas of Warsaw, but I wasn't here very long (just a couple of hours!) and the Warsaw I saw seemed very run down and depressing. After getting the train from Amsterdam we arrived at Warszawa Centalna then went to the Warsaw Uprising Museum to kill some time before heading off to Krakow. It was not the most luxurious city but it has a lot of history and an interesting story. The zebra crossings in Warsaw are also really interesting, a significant number were repainted to look like pianos for the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth in 1810. I wouldn't go back in a hurry, but I have only seen a tiny part of what is a huge city.

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.
