Poland's location between strong powers has not always been a good thing for the country. Warsaw's location, on the other hand, was the reason for its rise to national prominence. In 1596, King Sigismund III Vasa formed a union between Poland and Lithuania and moved the seat of government to Warsaw, the geographic center of the new state. By 1611, Warsaw was the official capital of Poland.  Click here to see the full Warsaw travel guide on Travel42 »

Before setting off on a sightseeing tour, it might be useful to put the city and its sites in a historical context. One of the best ways to do this is to visit the Warsaw Historical Museum and see the film that depicts the destruction of Warsaw during World War II. You can then walk through Stare Miasto (Old Town) and Nowe Miasto (New Town) and appreciate the reconstructed quarters in a different light.   Click here to see the full Warsaw travel guide on Travel42 »
