Warsaw, which is located on the Vistula River 230 miles from the Baltic Sea and the Carpathian Mountains, is Poland's capital and its largest city with a population of over 1 million people.
A vacation means shopping and the huge Galeria Mokotów has it all. You could spend all week in it and not see it all. For those that love a good bargain, the Arkadia is the mall for you. The Old Town Market Square is a sight that everyone must see. Destroyed during the war and then rebuilt, its beauty shows everywhere just as the Royal Castle does. There's shops, pubs, restaurants, artists selling their work, merchants ready to barter and the most beautiful cathedrals. The kids will love Lazienki Park & Chopin's Monument (aka Palace on the water). Young lovers (when not in the 'Ground Zero' nightclub) hang out as well as kids to feed the fish and go on boat rides. Do not leave Warsaw without tasting their famous brew.
