Warsaw is a dynamic, born-again capital. Although much of the city was destroyed in World War II, immediately afterwards, a huge project was set in motion to rebuild the city. The Old Town, with its cobbled streets now lined with boutiques, and the impressive Gothic Cathedral of St. John are just two fine examples of the painstaking work which was done. A number of elegant palaces and parks surround the city; these include Wilanow, a wonderful Baroque palace built for King Jan Sobieski III and the Lazienki Park with its 18th century Orangery and ornate palace. The National Gallery with many examples of Polish art is worth a visit and the Polish National Opera performs at the Teatr Wielki, the largest stage in Europe. Warsaw makes a fascinating twin-centre holiday when combined with Krakow which is less than three hours away by train.
