Warsaw city tour for the Natolin students of the Éliane VOGEL-POLSKY Promotion

On the weekend of September 4th and 5th, students from the College of Europe in Natolin embarked on a series of three tours to their new environs, encompassing large swathes of the Warsaw city center and nearby neighborhoods.

The tours, led by a local guide and Warsaw native Mr Michał SZYMAŃSKI, departed from the Palace of Culture and Science (Pałac Kultury i Nauki) at 3 pm Saturday, 10 am Sunday and 3 pm Sunday respectively. The students first took in the skyscrapers nearby the Palace, several sights representing the Jewish heritage of Warsaw, and the local World War II route. The tours proceeded with an exploration of streets lined with socialist buildings, palaces, and luxury hotels. The group also visited the Holy Cross church, where the heart of Frederic Chopin is buried, and the historic Warsaw University Campus.

Concluding in the Warsaw Old Town, the three-hour-long tours offered the students a historical, cultural, and social overview of the city, and provided many opportunities for scenic photos and animated discussion along the way.
