City Grounds

Warsaw is a relatively engineered city. When it was bombarded to the ground during WWII, the old historical structures were remade to its original design. The modern constructions came and skyscrapers were erected all over the city. The River Vistula runs north to south diagonally across Warsaw. Streets were cleverly planned to accommodate housing, commercial, natural and tourist districts.


Warsaw is generally a humid city. Snowy and cold during the winters when temperature ranges from -4°C and 6°C (25°F and 42°F); the summer scorches a warmer 9°C and 22°C(47°F and 73°F). Rainfall scatters all year round, but it mostly pours during July.
