Warsaw (map) is Poland’s capital and largest city. Its historical Old Town (map) was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The city rose to prominence in the late 16th century, when Sigismund III decided to move the Polish capital and his royal court from Kraków. Warsaw served as the de facto capital of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth until 1795, and subsequently as the seat of Napoleon’s Duchy of Warsaw.

The Old Town (map) is the historic core of the city that was contained in its erstwhile city walls in the times it was still a small town, before it became the country’s capital in the late 16th century. The New Town (map) is called so because it was the first part of Warsaw to be built outside of the original city wall ring, but it is indeed not much newer than the old town and much older than most of other neighbourhoods of Warsaw.

*Śródmieście (map). The most central district in Warsaw, the Old and New Town are in Śródmieście. It is the area where most travelers will spend their time in Warsaw, as most major attractions and hotels are primarily located here, including the Royal Route with historical royal and noble residences, Jewish monuments and memorials, as well as the modern buildings.

Among the most notable landmarks of the Old Town are the Royal Castle (wiki, map), Sigismund’s Column (map), Market Square (map), and the Barbican (map). Further south is the so-called *Royal Route, with many historical churches, Baroque and Classicist palaces, most notably the Presidential Palace, and the University of Warsaw campus.
