Czech-born teacher Daniela Szlawski chats to Jolanta Wolska.

What brings you to Warsaw?
I have been to Warsaw some time ago, and my husband wanted to show me how much it has changed.

What are your impressions?
Warsaw has changed a lot for the better. There is much more music, entertainment and many great restaurants. Warsaw is clean, green, well organized, it feels safe and people are polite.

What else do you like about Warsaw?
I like the fact that streets are wide, although I realize that Warsaw was nearly completely rebuilt after the war. Unlike other European cities, it is not constrained by the old medieval architecture. Warsaw has a feeling of a thoroughly modern city.

What impressed you?
Being here during the commemorations of the 69th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, it was wonderful to see that young Polish people were so involved in the life and history of Warsaw, particularly during all the events associated with the anniversary. People here remember their history, nurture it and maintain traditions and culture.

What surprises you?
It surprises me that Polish people don’t promote their gems and historic treasures abroad. I loved Wilanów Palace, the Royal Łazienki Park, and the Military Cemetery was impressive.

What will you take home?
I’m taking home lots of photographs and very fond memories. And I will tell people that Warsaw is really worth visiting, it’s a fascinating and very friendly city.
