The slogan for Warsaw is ‘Zakochaj się w Warszawie’ which in English means “Fall in love with Warsaw” and I think I have. Prior to World War Two, the city was known as ‘the Paris of the East’ but this was before the Warsaw uprising which saw the city devastated by the bombs. Nothing survived, not one single building. What you see today has been carefully and lovingly rebuilt after the war. One English speaking friend once told me, the city’s destiny is in it’s English name: War-saw.
But enough about the history! Today the city is buzzing with life, funked up with super cool architecture and friendly people. It’s grand and mighty and the food is delicious. What else do you need? It doesn’t need to be on top of any European destination’s list as the city has its own character and flavour. I love it and I will definitely be back!
