The history of Poland is a dramatic one, yet Poland remains largely unknown. Marc Heine's deep knowledge of Poland brings alive its famous cities and varied countryside. He takes the reader on a guided tour through modern Warsaw, one of the most fascinating cities in Europe, and describes the pride and determination which has rebuilt the city so beautifully following the devastation of the Second World War. He not only points out the major sights, but also recounts their past and present history.
