Capital of Poland for over 400 years, Warsaw is a compelling Eastern European destination.
For high culture entertainment, the Polish National Opera and the Warsaw Philharmonic perform regularly, as do a number of city theater companies near our Warsaw accommodations. The Palace of Culture and Science in the city center is a beautiful structure with a fascinating and controversial history, while the National Museum exhibits well-known paintings by Botticelli, Rubens, Rembrandt and other masters. And of course, the Frederic Chopin Museum pays homage to Poland's most famous composer.
Warsaw hotel guests looking for scenic European landscapes will want to visit nearby Kampinos National Park, a wild and beautiful forest preserve; the park is also a protected breeding ground for Polish elk, bison, and lynx. Within the city itself, Lazienki Park is a scenic wooded area home to a former royal palace and more than a few wild peacocks, and don’t miss the antics of the monkeys at the Warsaw Zoo.
On the way back to your hotel, the lively Warsaw nightlife provides the perfect close to your day––especially in the Srodmiescie district, where cafes, clubs, and music venues abound.
