Often it is nicknamed as the “phoenix city” because it has been destroyed many times through its history. Most severely it was damaged by the Nazis in the World War II.
Now the town is completely rebuilt and its two historic districts, the Old Town (Stare Miasto) and the New Town (Nowe Miasto) attract visitors from all over the world with its extensive tourist offer including Zaluski Library (the first world’s public library), the Poster Museum (the world’s first ever museum of that kind) and many other city’s landmarks.
Nowadays Warsaw is a very important economic hub in Central Europe. It’s the most important political and administrative Polish centre housing all state institutions of the country (the Polish Parliament, the Presidential Office, Supreme Court, etc.).
The city of Warsaw has always been a multi-cultural city, educational and art destination.
