I met a lot of Polish travelers in Romania. Most of them were from Krakow, and when I told them I’d be visiting Warsaw, all of them told me I was making a mistake, only half-jokingly. I, however, found Warsaw to be perfectly lovely.

Walking around the city, it’s striking to think about how quickly Warsaw must have managed to regenerate. There are lovely parks, tall skyscrapers and renovated old buildings. The Old Town was totally rebuilt with complete attention to historic detail. And while it feels a bit Disney-World-ish in how meticulously perfect it is, it’s still beautiful to explore.
