Warsaw – A Unique City
Warsaw city is located on the longest river in Poland, Vistula River, and about 260 kilometres (160 mi) from the Baltic Sea. The Warsaw greater metropolitan area has a population of about 2 million residents, and it ranks as the ninth most populous city in the European Union. The city area covers an area of 516.9 sq kilometres (199.6 sq mi).
Warsaw was almost rebuilt from scratch after World War II, during which most of its buildings were destroyed. Today, the city is vibrant with many skyscrapers, a stunning skyline, and a distinctive eastern European flavor. Warsaw is a popular international tourist destination, particularly during summer.
Warsaw city is a dominant economic and cultural centre that attracts many people from the rest of the country in pursuit of employment opportunities and education – and as a result, it is by far the largest and fastest growing Polish city. The city has a unique character, as influenced by three main factors, namely the Second World War, more than four decades of communist rule, and the current transformative years with significant in-flow of foreign investment.
If you would like to enjoy Warsaw from up in the air, Warsaw City 2013 X will do the job.
