Warsaw (Polish name: Warszawa) was established in the 13th century and in 1596 became the capital of Poland. It suffered from hostile enemies several times in its history including an almost complete destruction in 1944. It has been restored, rebuilt and developed since then.

As Poland's capital city, Warsaw is the seat of central government agencies, Central European headquarters of international companies, and a venue for important cultural events. With 6 major and 63 smaller Universities it is also the largest academic center in Poland. Inhabited by dynamic and hardworking people, Warsaw has been developing at a breathtaking pace.
