|General||Warsaw is the capital and largest city in Poland. The population of urban Warsaw is just over 1.7 million people and the metropolitan Warsaw area is just over 2.6 million. Warsaw is known as the ?Phoenix City? due to its ability to ?rise from the ashes? of World War II and rebuild itself.
During World War II, Warsaw was invaded by the Nazis and became under the rule of the third Reich. During this time Warsaw saw two uprisings take place. The first was the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising in 1943 where the Jews who were still living in the ghetto, after it had been mostly emptied due to the deportation rules, rebelled against their oppressors. The Uprising ended with the annihilation of the Ghetto by the Nazis. The second uprising was the Warsaw Uprising of 1944. This was led by the Polish resistance known as the Home Army, who rose up against Nazi occupation hoping to be liberating by the Polish army instead of Soviet liberation from the east. The Uprising lasted until October 1944 when the Home Army surrendered. More information about these uprisings can be found at the Warsaw Uprising Museum.
Culturally, Warsaw has many different venues in which performances can be viewed. Warsaw has over 30 theatres which are located all over the city. Some of these theatres include the National Theatre (established in 1765) and the Grand Theatre (founded in 1778). There are also many musical venues in Warsaw including, the Polish National Opera, the Chamber Opera, Teatr Wielki, the National Philharmonic Hall, the National Theatre, Congress Hall and the Palace of Culture and Science. Some events and festivals that are held in Warsaw include, The Jazz Jamboree, The International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition, Warsaw Autumn, Warsaw Summer, the International Stanislaw Moniuszko and more.
