Warsaw as a capital city of Poland and modern metropolis is a center of culture, education and business travel. History of the city is inseparably connected with the Second World War, as a result of which it was almost completely destroyed. The course of the struggle for independence during the largest military attack in Europe against the Nazis is shown in the Warsaw Rising Museum.
As a result of the reconstruction of the city after the war, the largest building in the country - the Palace of Culture and Science, which is a symbol of socialist realism, stood in the center. The Old Town and the Royal Castle were also rebuilt, which is now on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
A large part of the city are parks, the most famous of which is the Royal Baths with the Palace on the Water. In 2012, the National Stadium was built by the Vistula River, where the EURO 2012 World Cup took place.
