Warsaw is located in the central-eastern part of Poland in the Mazovian voivodeships by the Vistula river. It is one of the best economically developed cities in the country. It is also the capital of Poland since 1596. Warsaw is the largest city in Poland in terms of population (about 1.8 million inhabitants). According to unofficial estimates, the number of residents might be actually much higher and even reach 2 million. Different estimates in data result from the fact that some inhabitants did not report their residence in Warsaw.
Warsaw plays an important role in the national transport system. The extensive network of highways, expressways, railway stations and airports (Chopin Airport and Warsaw Modlin Airport) has a very positive impact on the development of the companies operating in the city.
The capital of Poland is becoming more and more popular among tourists who appreciate its monuments, architecture, cuisine and cultural offers. In 2017, around 25 million people visited Warsaw.
The main tourist attractions in Warsaw are: the Palace of Culture and Science, the Old Town, Łazienki Park, museums, the Vistula Boulevards and the city's beaches. It is also worth visiting Praga, which was ranked as the 4th coolest district in Europe. The ranking was published in 2017 by Business Insider.
