The modern and thriving capital city of Warsaw is situated on the banks of the mighty Vistula, Poland's largest river. Like many European cities it suffered greatly from bombing during WWII and has been reconstructed into a very modern city in the decades since. Even the atmospheric Old Town is new, and the traditional burgher houses have carefully reconstructed facades in order to keep the original character.
