What to do in Warsaw

There are many things to do in Warsaw that is not captured here on live webcam online. While this list is by no means complete, it gives some insights into the diversity of Warsaw, which is evident in the cam online footage above.

Sights

Castle Square is a juxtaposition of the old and the new. It looks like an old town city, but it was actually rebuilt after WWII. It has a joyous atmosphere by day and by night. The Warszawa Royal Castle is an interesting landmark that used to be the residence of the Polish Monarchy. The Castle is situated in Castle Square and is an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Museums

In the Soho Factory Praga, you’ll find the Neon Museum which tells the very interesting history of Cold War Poland. The Chopin museum is a fascinating display in honour of the world-renowned pianist, Frederyk Chopin. It hosts an impressive collection of paintings, letters and manuscripts documenting the life of this famous musician.

Parks

Lazienki Park is the largest park in Warsaw. It is named after the bathing pavilion that was located on the Lazienki Park grounds. The park is part of the Royal Route, which used to be the main route to convey urgent messages. Alternatively, one can visit the University Library Garden which is a rooftop garden at the Warsaw University library.

History of Warsaw

Warsaw started as a small hamlet on the Wisla River. Not much growth took place from its first establishment in the 10th century until the 14th century. In the 1400’s, Warsaw became the capital of the Duchy of Mazovia and in the 1500’s it became an important territory of Poland. In 1596, Warsaw was made the capital of Poland and became increasingly important. The 17th and 18th centuries were periods of great growth in Warsaw. This period saw the construction of the Wilanow Palace, the Saxon Garden and the National Theater. In 1795 Warsaw was taken by Prussia and was later handed over to Russia in 1815.

Modern Warsaw

Warsaw gradually developed during the 19th century. In this period the Warsaw University was founded, the Copernicus Monument was unveiled and the Warsaw Mermaid Statue was created. In the early 1900’s, Warsaw saw the construction of tram lines and the introduction of electricity.

During WWI, Warsaw was captured by Germany. About a third of the Warsaw population was Jewish at the time and they were oppressed and later transported to concentration camps. Those who remained fought hard against the Germans but unfortunately did not have the power to overpower the German forces. In September 1945, Russia captured Warsaw and by the end of WWII, Warsaw was a devastated city. The city was slowly rebuilt to the vibrant and eclectic city that it is today.
