Located between the Baltic Sea to the south and the Carpathian Mountains to the north, Warsaw, Poland's capital city has successfully sprung forth from its past image, and emerged as a diverse city. After suffering damage during World War II, Warsaw set about restoring its landscape to its former glory. Today, it is home to some of the most striking examples of architecture that spans Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neoclassical, postmodern and neo-modern periods. It also celebrates its culture with a set of contemporary landmarks that throng its wide streets, from the Warsaw Spire and the neo-modern Q22 complex, to the futuristic design of the Spektrum Tower. In an attempt to achieve a balance of history, modernity and nature, Warsaw tries to maintain a beautiful natural environment within its cluster of buildings, with as many as 82 parks around the city. Through its spirit and rich cultural background, Warsaw tells a compelling story of resilience.
