What to Do in Warsaw: Must See Attractions

Warsaw Attractions

Warsaw isn't exactly the city that never sleeps, but it does have a number of attractions you'll love on your trip. Start with a visit the Copernicus Science Centre, which is one of Europe's best science museums. While some might think only kids would love a museum of this type, it has hands on exhibits every age group enjoys. You can learn more about the history of science and how scientists used different methods to invent products people still use today.

If this is your first visit to Warsaw, make sure you head to the Warsaw Uprising Museum. The city went through some major changes over the years, and this museum focuses on how workers revolted against their leaders. Though this all might sound a little bleak, you'll leave with a better understanding of what workers once through and how their rebellion changed the nation.

Many visitors take Warsaw excursions to Lazienki Park. King Stanislaw August Poniatowski built this large complex decades ago, and it is now one of the top tourist destinations in the city. Once you see the gorgeous gardens and water features, you'll understand why it's such a popular spot. You can even bring along a picnic lunch to eat by the water.

Poland has a deep connection to World War II, and you can take Warsaw tours of Old Town to see how the city responded to threats by Nazis. The Nazis destroyed many of the buildings in this neighborhood, but after the war ended, residents rebuilt the area. You can now see some of the top sites in the city in this small neighborhood, and you can even grab a map to build your own walking tour around those places.

The must see things to do in Warsaw range from spots like the Warsaw Zoo to restaurants where local residents love eating.
