Warsaw Rising Museum
Warsaw suffered profoundly at the hands of Nazis for the longest of time. The oppression of the Polish, therefore, resulted in the historically significant Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Though the uprising was a failure, just the fact that the Poles tried their best to oust the German Army was a feat on its own. Thus, to commemorate the efforts, Warsaw Rising Museum was born in 2004. The museum is the best place to learn every tiny detail there is to the uprising. Packed with interactive displays, videos, photographs, and various exhibits, the museum is intriguing to say the least. Spread across several levels, the museum narrates the story of the uprising in a chronological order. Rent a car and head to Warsaw Rising Museum for getting an insight about the history of the city.
Old Town is the crowning jewel of Warsaw. The winding cobblestone streets, the colorful tenement houses and a vibrant atmosphere encapsulates the charm of Old Town. It is a window to the “once upon a time” in Warsaw when the city was riding high on its golden days. However, the historic center which was reflective of the 12th and 13th century was almost burnt down to ashes during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. Later, with the efforts of the government and the locals, Old Town was restored to its former glory with such precision that it’s hard to tell if it was ever ripped apart. Today, it enjoys the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Old Town Market Square nestled in the Old Town is where all the fun things go down. Several restaurants, cafés and bars dish out good times to visitors. Many hotels are located in this majestic area. So, make hotel reservations to wake up to the lively vibe of the Old Town.
