Natolin (Warsaw), Poland
Located in the largest central European Member State of the EU, close to its Eastern border, its programme allows students to become familiar with the political and socio-economic developments of Central and Eastern Europe, as well as with the new policies developed by the EU to shape its relationship with its neighbours following enlargement. The College of Europe's Natolin (Warsaw) campus is part of a 120-hectare historical park and nature reserve - formerly the Royal hunting palace of Natolin - situated in the southern part of Warsaw.
Warsaw, a thriving and fast-developing metropolis of 1.7 million inhabitants, boasts a wealth of history and culture, as well as intense commercial and political activity, as befits a nation of nearly 40 million people.
Modern commercial areas with elegant shops and restaurants complement the charms of the historic Old Town, its castle and beautiful old streets and squares almost entirely obliterated during the 1944 Warsaw uprising, but painstakingly restored brick by brick to their historic magnificence during the postwar years. Today is a fascinating time to live and study in Poland, a historic and beautiful country and a dynamic member of the EU.
