Warsaw is located in central-eastern Poland in the Mazowiecka Lowland. The longest Polish river, the Vistula, flows through the city. Warsaw is the capital and also the largest city of the country with nearly 1.78 million inhabitants. The most important state offices have their headquarters here, among others The President, Parliament, Council of Ministers, Supreme Court, Constitutional Court and the Supreme Administrative Court. Warsaw is the most important business, economic and cultural centre in Poland, which is still developing dynamically. It is also a very important communication point, to all means of transport including air (two airports – F. Chopin Airport in the city itself and the suburban airport in Modlin), rail and road.
The University of Warsaw (must-see at the UW) is one of the oldest university in Poland, which was founded on November 19, 1816. Interestingly, it was created by merging previously existing schools, including School of Law and Administrative Sciences, founded in 1808 and whose tradition is followed by the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Warsaw (virtual tour 1, tour 2, tour 3, tour 4). It is currently the largest university in the country.
Warsaw is a bustling metropolis that provides many attractions and ways to spend your free time. There are numerous theatres, cinema galleries and libraries (one of the most interesting is the University of Warsaw Library located almost on the banks of the Vistula, whose attraction is, among others, roof gardens providing beautiful views of the city). The capital also offers an extremely wide range of culinary venues with a varied cuisine, thanks to which every visitor will find something interesting for themselves. Recently, Warsaw has been opening up to its Vistula areas, which are becoming one of the favourite meeting places for residents.
