The Tallest Landmark in Warsaw: Palace of Culture and Science
Palace of Culture and Science is the tallest building in Warsaw and can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. The landmark is located right in the heart of the city centre.

Make this as your first stop in Warsaw and you will be overwhelmed by the panoramic view of the city from 30th-floor high of the building.
Crossing Vistula River to the Old Town Warsaw
Walking is probably the best way of travelling; you will never waste your time on the traffic and somehow get stuck in nowhere.

Where to Go in Old Town Warsaw
Colourful townhouses can be found everywhere in the Old Town. Meet a statue of Mermaid in the Old Town Market Square and don't forget to take a picture with the official symbol of Warsaw!

Spend some times around the areas if you are looking for quality local restaurants and boutique, too!
Away from the City: Royal Łazienki Museum
Łazienki Park is the largest park in Warsaw; it was used to be the summer residence of the last king of Poland and now a Royal Łazienki Museum that everyone can go. The park is also home to some gardens including a Chinese garden that you might not even believe. If you love nature, this is the place for you. Spot the squirrels and peacocks and let them surprise you while you are there!
The Most Beautiful Cathedral in Warsaw: St. Florian's Cathedral
St. Florian's Cathedral, also best known as Cathedral of St. Michael the Archangel and St. Florian the Martyr, is probably one of the oldest churches in eastern Warsaw. This gothic styled architecture is mostly made of red brick. What we found it overwhelming is this cathedral is horizontally balanced in every way! What a true beauty!
