The Royal Baths, Warsaw
The Royal Baths, a residence of king Stanislaw August Poniatowski, is one of the most beautiful 18th century park and palace complexes in Europe. One of Warsaw's most famous landmarks, it attracts visitors with its classicist architecture and the soothing green of the park. The name of the residence comes from the Lubomirski family's summer baths which existed in the area in the late 17th century. In 1764, the property was purchased by Stanislaw August, who hired the best architects at that time, such as Domenico Merlini, and filled the forest with marvellous classicist buildings. The Palace on the Water was the venue of thriving cultural and artistic life of the Polish Enlightenment. ‘King Stas', himself a great patron of the arts, invited the most distinguished artist to his famous ‘Thursday dinners'. Located in the downtown area of the Polish capital, the Royal Baths are a popular tourist destination and a beloved walking area for the Varsovians. Visitors are enchanted by the rich interior ornaments of the palace, its reflection on the surface of the pond, and the amphitheatre on the water. They cannot miss a walk in the park, which remains uniquely beautiful throughout all seasons of the year. Summertime, especially, offers many attractions, such as concerts amidst a sea of flowers in front of the Fryderyk Chopin monument, a meeting with stately peacocks, a gondola trip across the pond, or an opportunity to feed squirrels. The park's Old Orangery, full of exotic trees and statues, hosts the country's largest Polish Sculpture Gallery.

The Royal Castle, Warsaw. UNESCO
The Royal Castle in Warsaw and the painstakingly renovated neighbouring tenements in the Old Town have a large symbolic significance for Poland. These Renaissance royal residence and the seat of Parliament was witness to many important historic occasions. During WWII it suffered the fate of the rest of Warsaw and was reduced to rubble. Consumed by fire as a result of air raids, it was blown up by German soldiers after the fall of the Warsaw Uprising. It was only rebuilt in 1984. Areas of the Castle worth seeing include the carefully reconstructed complex of chambers which used to be occupied by King Stanisław August Poniatowski. The Canaletto Hall includes a splendid collection of landscapes portraying a panorama of the 18th century capital by the artist known as Warsaw's painter. Photorealistic in their level of detail, these paintings proved to be an invaluable aid in reconstructing the city following damage sustained during the war. The Ballroom is the most dazzling of all the chambers and visitors can admire the largest ornamental ceiling in Poland, depicting mythological themes. These days the Castle also serves as a venue for important cultural events, such as prestigious awards ceremonies and classical music concerts. The Royal Castle in Warsaw is a UNESCO world heritage site.

It is bounded by the Wybrzeze Gdanskie, along with the banks of Vistula river, Grodzka, Mostowa and Podwale Streets. It is one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Warsaw.

The Warsaw Uprising Museum, Warsaw
The Warsaw Rising (1st August 1944) was the largest armed insurrection during the Second World War, organised by the underground Home Army (Armia Krajowa). The heroic fight against the more powerful German army occupying the capital city ended tragically for the Poles: 10 thousand insurgents and 200 thousand civilians died, 7 thousand went missing. Eighty per cent of Warsaw was destroyed, and it became a city of ruins. The Warsaw Rising Museum was opened in 2004, on the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the fight for freedom. It is a tribute to all those who fought and died for the freedom of Poland and its capital city. It teaches history, provokes reflection and moves your heart. The Museum is situated in a former tram power station from the early 20th century at the junction of Przyokopowa and Grzybowska Streets in the Wola District. The unusual interior design appeals to the visitors with image, sound and light, conveying the atmosphere of Warsaw at the time. It not only shows the military events of the 63-day-long struggle, but also everyday life of ordinary inhabitants of Warsaw. Visitors walk along paths paved with granite cobblestones among ruins of the destroyed city. They experience the “W” hour (the time when the fight broke out), printed historical announcements using antique printing presses, a walk through a sewer, and they watch uprising chronicles in the Palladium cinema. An important highlight is the hall with a replica of the Liberator B-24 airplane in a 1:1 scale. The Warsaw Rising Museum is a special point on the route of everyone visiting Warsaw. For the last six years it has been visited by approximately 3 million visitors.
Kanonia, Warsaw, UNESCO
This is a small, triangular square near the cathedral. The name comes from the old-style buildings surrounding the square, where canon priests lived in the 17th century. There was formerly a parish cemetery in this place, and there is a remnant of an 18th century Baroque statue of the Virgin Mary. In the middle of the square there is a huge bronze bell from the 17th century which has never hung in any church, but, as legend has it, when you circle around it three times, it will bring you good luck. Kanonia has the narrowest house in Warsaw - a clever trick of the landlord, as in olden times, the amount of land taxes to be paid depended on the width of the external façade. Kanonia is a part of the Historic Centre of Warsaw (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Gnojna Gora, Warsaw, UNESCO
From the Middle Ages to the second half of the 18th century, this was a rubbish dump, but today it is a man-made hill with a terrace. The view extends from the right side of the Vistula River and goes very far east. Gnojna Gora is a part of The Historic Centre of Warsaw (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
The Old Town Market Square, Warsaw, UNESCO
Founded in the late 13th and early 14th centuries, this is one of the most picturesque corners of the city. It was once the main square of Warsaw: celebrations and markets were organised here, and legal judgements were passed on the condemned. The central part of the market was originally occupied by the town hall which was demolished in 1817, and, in 1944, the Old Town was completely destroyed during World War II. All its buildings were reconstructed after the war, and it is a faithful copy of the Square's original look in the 17th and 18th centuries. The Mermaid Statue stands in the very centre of The Old Town Square, surrounded by a fountain. Due to vandalism, the original statue was moved to the grounds of the Historical Museum of Warsaw – the statue in the square is a copy. This is not the only mermaid in Warsaw. One is also located on the banks of the Vistula River near Swietokrzyski Bridge and another near Karowa Street. The Old Town Market Square is a part of The Historic Centre of Warsaw (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Barbican, Warsaw, UNESCO
The Barbican was built around 1548 by architect Giovanni Battista Venetian. Together with the Gate Tower and ‘Gunpowder Gate’, it formed the so-called Zakroczymska Gate. In its history, the Barbican only once took part in the defense of Warsaw, on June 30 1656, when the Swedes invaded the city and Polish troops repelled the effort. In the 18th century, the Barbican was partially demolished, and in the 19th century houses were built on its ruins. During World War II, the entire Barbican was almost completely destroyed, and after the war it was decided to rebuild the walls surrounding the former Old Town, together with the Barbican. The reconstruction was carried out on the basis of 17th-century engravings, and used brick from Gothic buildings demolished in Nysa and Wroclaw. The Barbican is a part of The Historic Centre of Warsaw (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Stone Steps, Warsaw, UNESCO
A narrow street lined with a stone staircase, which connects the Old Town area to the nearby Vistula River. The first mention of it dates from 1527, when it was described as ‘a great descent to the Vistula’ (‘gradum descendendo as Vislam’). People passed through a crack in the defensive walls in order to carry water from the Vistula. Currently, its route is limited to just two sections: one on the streets from Krzywe Kolo Street curves to Brzozowa Street; the second from Brzozowa Street to Bugaj Street. In the 17th century, they were named ‘On the Stairs’, then later ‘The Stairs’, and after replacing the wooden steps with stone – ‘The Stone Stairs’. In December 1806, Napoleon Bonaparte visited Warsaw and went down to the shore of the Vistula in the company of Prince Jozef Poniatowski via the Stone Stairs. During World War II, the surrounding buildings were destroyed, and between 1952-1962 they were rebuilt and the stone stairs were slightly extended. Another renovation was carried out in 2002, when the 78 steps, wooden railings, gates and wall fragments were repaired or added to. The Stone Steps Street is a part of the Historic Centre of Warsaw (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
