Warsaw is easily the mecca of Poland’s culture. This city is home to some of the country’s best museums and a thriving music scene. On any given day in Warsaw, you can find an edgy street fest or a Chopin-inspired music festival. This city, being located between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939, was essentially flattened during World…
