Warsaw lies at the heart of Poland, which itself is at the heart of Europe, so it’s the perfect location not only for political and scientific
conferences, but also for business and cultural events.
Its modern architecture, user-friendly infrastructure and creative inhabitants all help to make Warsaw the beating heart of business. But behind
the hustle and bustle of the business world, you can also feel the rhythm of
city life. Try the varied delights of the city’s many restaurants, take a stroll
along the banks of Vistula or simply stroll around and discover the fascinating reality of life in a modern European city.
Warsaw is a city just waiting to be explored. Constantly changing and
modernising, it soon becomes almost unrecognisable if you don’t visit for
a while. But there are aspects of its quirky character, and many cult places, which are always there, just waiting to be discovered. Whether you are
visiting Warsaw on business or for pleasure, the city offers everything you
need to make your stay here the perfect break

Whether you are sightseeing in the Old Town or wandering around the area surrounding the Palace of Culture and Science, the easiest and most interesting way to look around is definitely on foot. But if you want to give your legs a break, Warsaw has a very efficient and safe public transport system comprising two metro lines, trams, buses and night buses.
Alternatively, if you’d like to escape from modern forms of transport for a while, and you fancy travelling around Warsaw in a bit of style, you can always get a taste of life in 19th century Warsaw by hitching a ride in one of the horse omnibuses or horse-drawn cabs which operate near the Old Town.
Another popular way to get around is to take a trip back in time to the 1950s with a ride on the historic “T” tram line, which runs through the city centre and on the right side of the river. Or you can avoid the roads altogether with trips along the Vistula River by water tram or ferry.
Finally, you can even let someone else’s legs take the strain with a rickshaw ride around the Krakowskie Przedmieście area.
