Warsaw, or Warsawa in Polish, is a large, bustling city that plays a major role in political, scientific and university circles throughout Poland. Virtually destroyed during World War II, Warsaw rose from the ashes to become an example of a solid, post-war urban renewal dream. Here we see the Old City, which has been entirely rebuilt, the Palace of Culture, which is Warsaw's tallest skyscraper, and the Fotoplastikon, a 3D slideshow that reveals 19th century Warsaw. Away from the busy city we explore a sea of flowers and fountains at the Wilanow Palace. Warsaw's outdoor market, along the Vistula River, is the largest of its kind in Eastern Europe and features the hectic blend of shoppers, tramways and cars. Polish restaurants are famous for their pierogis, cholodnik, jourek, stuffed cabbage and borscht; also Polish soups are available in the city's famous "milk bars." Warsaw is dotted with many churches, including St. John Cathedral, and the Nozyk Synagogue, in a neighborhood once known as the Warsaw Ghetto. Lastly, from the Andrzej Wajda cinematic school to the lush gardens of Lazienki Palace, where one may hear a Chopin recital, we see the arts are alive in this thriving city that continues to look confidently towards the future. 05/08DE JSCA 52 min.
