Things to see in Warsaw Poland

Warsaw! The capital city of Poland is rich in history, culture, and architecture. My visitors guide that will take you through some of the most important and interesting sites in the city.

Bus station Taxi Scam, Arrived from Vilnius, on a long bus ride, there are several Taxis outside the main bus station, since I didn't speak Polish they wanted $200 USD to take me to my hotel, Taxis in Warsaw have meters, don't fall for the scam.

Stay: Stayed at a B&B off of Nowy Swiat, great location, plenty cafes and restaurants and walking distance to major tourist attractions.

Places to see

1. Castle Square: Its here where you'll find the Royal Castle and Sigismund's Column. The Royal Castle is a beautiful example of Baroque architecture and was the official residence of Polish monarchs.
