Warsaw is the capital of Poland and its largest city. With a population of just under two million it is the ninth largest urban area in Europe. Over 250,000 university students live in Warsaw.

The city was extensively rebuilt following World War II, which damaged most of the historic centre of the city. Some of this rebuilding has restored the traditional character of the city centre. Recent development since the collapse of the communist government has given the city a modern appearance and outlook.

Among the most notable landmarks of the Old Town are the Royal Castle, King Zygmunt's Column, Market Square, and the Barbican, which attract millions of visitors each year.
