Warsaw Old Town Walk
Warsaw – the biggest city and capital of Poland. Place full of history and memories. During the Warsaw Uprising in 1944, the German army razed the city to the ground, leaving only rubble. It was completely rebuilt after World War II, so today’s Warsaw is an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century. This is the reason why UNESCO included Old Town of Warsaw on its list of World Heritage Sites in 1980. Let us show you all highlights of this area during our guided Old Town walk which is the shortest version of city tour in our offer.
