Warsaw, a lively metropolis, is the largest city in Poland and the 8th largest city in the European Union. Warsaw is economically in the ascendant, which is mirrored by the city’s modern and comfortable hotels.
Along the bank of the Vistula, you will find Warsaw’s Old Town (Stare Miasto). Near your Warsaw hotel you will come across the Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy) with the baroque Zygmunt's Column (Kolumna Zygmunta).
The Royal Castle (Zamek Królewski) is the official residence of the Polish monarchs, located at the Castle Square, at the entrance to the Old Town.
The castle is the starting point of the the Royal Route (Trakt Królewski), Warsaw’s ca. 10-km/6.2-miles-long avenue, which is lined by numerous office and government buildings as well as a large number of Warsaw hotels.
Warsaw's Old Town Market Place (Rynek Starego Miasta) is surrounded by beautiful patrician houses. While staying at a Warsaw hotel for a short trip, you should look around the local museum, which will inform you about the chequered history of Poland’s capital Warsaw.
Near your Warsaw hotel you will find the St. John’s Cathedral (Katedra św. Jana), which is one of the oldest churches in the city and the main church of the Warsaw arch-diocese. After having been badly destroyed during World War II, it has been replaced by a new building in 1956.
Many Warsaw hotel guests enjoy a visit to the Łazienki Park (Park Łazienkowski), where you can relax and have a look at the classicist-style gardens while walking between lakes, canals and pavilions. Warsaw’s modernity is mirrored by the 208-meter/682.5-feet-high Warsaw Trade Tower (WTT), which grants you a tremendous view on Warsaw’s hotels and sights.
You will reach your hotel in Warsaw quickly and comfortably by metro. The bus and tram network of the city is considered as being technologically antiquated and tends to be overloaded in the suburbs.
