Day 237 – Warszawa, Poland

Ryan and I continued to explore Warsaw today. This afternoon we visited many interesting parts of the city including the beautiful Royal Baths Park. The Park is home to the stunning Palace on the Water and a grand statue of Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin (my favorite composer). Fryderyk Chopin grew up in Warsaw and completed his musical education here. It was wonderful to see Chopin’s Warsaw. Modern day Warsaw is undergoing a tremendous boom. I am extremely proud of how Warsaw is evolving and rebounding from its sad past.

(Sadly, many streets in Warsaw still look like this – remnants of the Communist era)

  1. If it is undergoing a tremendous boom why so many young people leave the country?

    • Young and educated individuals are departing Poland for higher wages in other European countries. As Polish salaries improve and Poland’s infrastructure catches up to the standards enjoyed by those in Western Europe, less people will migrate. The current situation in Poland is difficult because people living there have to pay EU prices but they earn a Polish salary (which is a substantially lower than in other EU nations).

  2. My brother suggested I may like this blog. He was once entirely right.
    This publish actually made my day. You can not consider just how so much time I
    had spent for this info! Thanks!
