Warsaw is the capital and largest city of Poland. It is located on the Vistula River, roughly 160 mi from the Baltic Sea and 190 mi from the Carpathian Mountains. Its population in 2010 was estimated at 1.7M residents with a greater metropolitan area of 2.6M residents, making Warsaw the 7th most populous city proper in the EU.
It is also known as the "phoenix city" because it has survived many wars throughout its history. Most notably, the city had to be painstakingly rebuilt after the extensive damage it suffered from World War II, during which 80% of its buildings were destroyed.
