But why to take a Warsaw travel guide? Because Warsaw is the city of contrasts. It was almost completely  destroyed during The Second World War and then carefully rebuilt. Today the city is a combination of pre-war  houses, historical palaces, typical buildings from the communist times, amazing parks and gardens, also located on the roofs and modern skyscrapers.

If you are interested in  Jewish Warsaw or any other topic, hiring a Warsaw travel guide would be the best idea! Warsaw sightseeing with me would be discovering Warsaw you will not see by your own!
