Because this place always rises from the ashes is also called and known as “Phoenix City”. Palaces, churches and various architectural structures are intertwined throughout the city in combination with many green areas. Warsaw is known for having the highest tower surrounded with clocks from all sides. Every clock has a diameter of 6 meters.
