As a creative and optimistic person I want to make the most of life. Getting to know new people, joint plans and projects give me strength and energy to act. At the Warsaw College of Engineering and Health I can study and achieve my goals, at the same time. I know that establishing contacts with students, especially those from outside Poland, provides numerous benefits. It gives, after all, an amazing opportunity to do something that brings a smile to many faces and allows for wonderful memories that stay with us forever, because the time of studies is an exceptional time. In case of any formal, but also less formal questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

ABOUT THE CITY

Warsaw is the capital and the largest city of Poland. The metropolis stands on the banks of the Vistula River in east-central Poland and its population is officially estimated at 1.8 million residents within a greater metropolitan area of 3.1 million residents, which makes Warsaw the 7th most-populous capital city in the European Union.

The city rose to prominence in the late 16th century, when Sigismund III decided to move the Polish capital and his royal court from Kraków to Warsaw. Prior to the Second World War, the elegant architecture, grandeur and extensive boulevards earned Warsaw the nickname Paris of the North. Bombed at the start of the German invasion in 1939, the city withstood a siege, but was largely destroyed by the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising of 1943, the Warsaw Rising of 1944 and the systematic razing by the Germans in advance of the Vistula–Oder Offensive. Because of its complete reconstruction after the war, which had left over 85% of its buildings in ruins, Warsaw gained a new title of the Phoenix City.
