Warsaw, nurturing over 400 years of pride as a capital, is Poland’s largest city and an economic, political, and cultural centre. The symbol of the city is the Mermaid, featured on the city seal. Warsaw is a bustling metropolis and features an unforgettable history. A city where a fourth of the terrain is covered by parkland and a city of culture for all tastes and budgets...
In Warsaw today, archaeological traces of several early Middle Age castles are found on the Vistula River, the oldest of which - originating in the 10th and 11th centuries – were situated on what is known today as the area of Bródno. Slightly less aged is Jazdów, known as the home of the Prince's Castle. The city‘s history itself, however, is believed to have begun with the creation and development of Old Warsaw (Stara Warszawa), which was set on what is today known as the Old Town (Stare Miasto). Mazovian Prince Bolesław II brought prosperous traders to the Old Town, and his headquarters were based there, as well.
