Each city has a place that is its showcase and a must-see on any trip. In Warsaw, it’s the Old Town, on the UNESCO World Heritage List, it’s where the city’s heart has been beating for centuries. However, when you cross the Vistula River and look at the Old Town from a distance, you are struck by how unusual the panorama of the city is, skyscrapers rise above the red roofs of the Old Town. Historical buildings blend in harmoniously with modern architecture, and the city surprises us by revealing its second face.
