Whether you come to Warsaw on a business trip, for a science conference, or as a tourist, this city has everything that a modern European capital could offer. Dynamic commercial and office centre, friendly public transport (bike sharing system Veturilo and one ticket for the metro, trams, buses and trains within the city), vibrant cultural life – these are just some of the elements, which make Warsaw a perfect embodiment of changes that have taken place in Poland in the past 25 years. The city is an open home for active and creative people from all over the country. But it is hard to forget about history, especially that complex: almost total destruction of the city during WWII, post-war reconstruction and the years of communism. That is why today’s Warsaw is an intriguing mixture of past and present, where traces of former communities or monumental soc-realist buildings are neighbouring with new skyscrapers.
