By moving to Warsaw you're embarking on an exciting, absorbing - and often amazing journey.
In a city once seen as the ugly duckling of Eastern Europe , newcommers are usually surprised to find a modern, manageable metropolis that is firmly rooted in history yet amazingly forward looking. Those who delve beneath the surface discover that the 'phoenix city' has a lot more mojo up it's sleeve.
Though wartime scars and rough around the edges socialist structures still linger, the city has benefited from a major construction boom and ongoing efforts at urban renewal in the past two decades. Today, Warsaw exudes a yin-yang synergy of old world charm, communist leftovers and 21st century modernity that lures a constant flow of foreigners from all over the globe. Whether you are here for a year-long interlude or planning to settle for a lifetime, you'll find plenty in the way of business opportunities, cultural enrichment and quality of life.
Warsaw has a reputation for being a formal, business oriented city. As one of Europe's most rapidly growing capitals, there are certainly plenty of international businesses and corporate HQs to house cubicle dwellers and bureaucrats, but the multitude of parks, user friendly public-spaces and mushrooming dining and imbibing venues offer a myriad of entertainment possibilities . In truth, Warsaw consistently changes costumes in her many roles as the country's business capital, chic urban seductress, steely business titan and fledgling contemporary artist.
The beauty of living and working in Warsaw, here in this vibrant microcosm of Poland, is the aura of authenticity and consistent development, even in paths well-worn by the locals. This city presents a great deal of opportunity for foreign entrepreneurs and families alike - a diversifying expat community, cultural immersion and a good deal of historic treasures and gastronomic delicacies.
