Poland’s capital city has developed into a lively and vibrant place with much to explore. Was with a collection of photos or postcards from a long vacation, we’re taking a visual journey through the city’s top attractions and cultural exports.

In addition to subtle changes in historic building design, some of Warsaw’s oldest districts—Old Town and Praga—feature a thriving street art culture today. And while that may seem sacrilegious, Warsaw has a history of advertising painted on the sides of buildings. This makes the city’s street art culture retro-chic, often in conversation with staples of Polish design and culture.
