  1. We saw the monument to WWII and also visited Chopin park. Yeah, most of today’s old town is reconstructed, but they had done so with as much precision as possible using old architectural records!

    1. I was surprised as well! They used as many old bricks as possible. I thought it had been there for a long time until I read about its history 🙂

  2. I read about the destruction of Warsaw during WWII and was equally heartened to know how well the reconstruction work had been carried out, just like in Dresden. Loving your crisp photos! Did you try pierogi when you were in Warsaw?

    1. You are the first reader that recognize this similarity between the two towns. Good memory! 🙂
      Regarding the pierogi, I did try it. But honestly it is not my favourite. Perhaps I am obsessed by the Asian dumplings, especially the Japanese gyoza. I guess you can understand it very well after your trip to Japan 😉

  3. Warsaw is so great. The Old Town really is beautiful and has been restored wonderfully. Plus, it’s just a cool place, even the parts that are a bit gray and gloomy!

    1. Before visiting Warsaw, I really thought that it is a boring, gloomy city. But I was absolutely wrong. Warsaw is as great as Prague, Berlin or Budapest. Plus, it is very affordable 🙂

  4. Gorgeous photos again! Warsaw is really an example of how the city has risen from the ashes of war. Did you go to the Warsaw Uprising museum? I really enjoyed my visit there and learned a great deal about Warsaw’s history and the uprising movement by its residents back in 1944.

    1. Thank you, Pooja! I accidentally visited the museum even before seeing the Old Town. I found it is a perfect place to learn about history of Warsaw. The interactive benches around the Old Town are also amusing 🙂

    1. You should! I guess it changed a lot in the last 10 years 😉 And maybe it will look totally different in the next 10 years.

  5. An interesting post with great photos. You’ve confirmed Warsaw’s place on my list of ‘must visit one day’ cities.

  6. Wow that was strange. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say wonderful blog!
