Old Town, Warsaw

Shoppers and strollers bring life to the historic quarter of Warsaw, the capital of Poland. Most of the area was destroyed by Nazi troops during World War II; a five-year rebuilding effort restored the district, and it's now a World Heritage site. Spire-topped Royal Castle, once the official residence of the country's monarchs, is now a museum.
