Once described as Paris of the East, Warsaw was believed to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world until World War II.
Warsaw gained the new title of Phoenix City because of its extensive history and complete reconstruction after the severe damage it suffered in World War II, which left over 85% of its buildings in ruins.
The most amazing is the endurance of Polish people to rebuilt their historical patrimony.
From little but a small ruin of wall, some pieces of the floor and some pieces of art that Polish people hide, they worked to rebel piece by piece the whole city to its former glory. It's a wonderful example of resilience!
