Study in Capitol of Poland

Warsaw is the capital of Poland. It is a city steeped in history, yet it is focused on the present and looking forward to the future. Within one day, you can travel back in time by taking a stroll around the Old Town, then return to the present and go shopping at one of the modern shopping centers, and finally take the subway, running under the Vistula River, to gaze into distant galaxies at the Copernicus Science Center. During summers, the city hosts numerous events available free of charge, including concerts and music festivals, open air film screenings, and entry to many art galleries and museums.
