The literally glowing beauty of Poland's capital Warsaw in the evening hours is showcased brilliantly by drone pilot Damian, earning him a Drone Video of the Week nomination for this video. The city, once known as the "Paris of the East", literally rose from the ashes after being nearly destroyed in World War II.  Today, the city on the Vistula has seen much of its Old City restored to pre-war condition and has sprouted a thoroughly modern skyline alongside its historical core.

FALL IN LOVE WITH WARSAW FROM AIR

KG AIRVIEW

Poland's capital Warsaw is one of the world's most fascinating cities.  Once known as the Paris of the East for its beauty, Warsaw was nearly destroyed in World War II, with large sections leveled including its famed Old City.  Much of the damage was repaired during the Cold War era, and since the fall of the Berlin Wall, a very modern city has emerged on the Vistula River.  As you will see in this amazing drone video by KG Airview, Warsaw seamlessly blends the old and the new.

Here's a fascinating aerial view of a very modern looking Warsaw, Poland, compliments of contributor.  For decades, the only tall building in the Polish capital city was the 50's era Palace of Culture and Science.  While it is still (as of early 2019) the city's tallest building, it has lots of competition - over a dozen buildings now top 150 meters (about 500 ft.) and more are on the way.  In the video, you will see how this city is being transformed with ultramodern skyscrapers such as the Warsaw Spire complex.

The Gardens of the Royal Castle in Warsaw

The Royal Castle is one of the great landmarks of Warsaw, Poland.  The castle, along with most of Warsaw's Old Town, was virtually destroyed by Nazi Germany during the course of World War II, with most of the damage being deliberately inflicted following the suppression of the Warsaw Uprising in late 1944.  In the postwar decades, the castle and most of the Old Town were meticulously reconstructed.  You can see the famous castle and its gardens from above in this drone video by volatusmedia.

Some of the most important cultural attractions in the Polish capital city Warsaw are in Łazienki Park, the city's largest, which lies a short distance south of the city center.  In this dronen video by volatusmedia, you'll get a bird's eye view of the centerpiece of the park, which was designed in the 17th century: the Royal Łazienki Museum.  The museum site was formerly the summer residence of the last kings of Poland before the country was (temporarily) partitioned out of existence in the late 18th century.

Check out this epic first person view (FPV) video of a diving session at the newest landmark of Warsaw, Poland.  It's the main tower of the Warsaw Spire, a sleek modern office complex that is probably the most prominent symbol of Poland's resurgence.  The 49 story tower has an architectural height of 220 meters, or about 720 feet.  Designed by a well-known Belgian architect and completed in 2015, it's the second-tallest building in the city after the Stalinist-era Palace of Culture and Science.

Part of the unique look of Warsaw, Poland is due to the immense destruction it endured during World War II.  Vast sections of the city were leveled by Nazi Germany, but some of its most prominent areas were meticulously reconstructed after the war.  Other areas, which were not reconstructed, eventually became redeveloped with much more modern architecture as Poland transitioned back to capitalism.  In this drone video by volatusmedia, you'll get a nice aerial overview of the "two Warsaw's".

Drone Grand Tour - Warsaw Poland Dron video 2017 HD

The Polish capital city of Warsaw suffered more physical damage during World War II than any other city in Europe, much of it in retribution for the Warsaw Uprising.  In the decades following the war, the most culturally significant sites were carefully restored, a process which concluded (more or less) just a few years before the Cold War's end.  In this video, contributor Drone Grand Tour Team takes us on an aerial tour of the city's historical core, including the Old Town and the Royal Castle just outside its gates.

The Warsaw Uprising in the summer of 1944 was a seminal event in World War II as well as for the Polish nation.  Although Germany had no chance of winning the war by this point, troops under control of the German SS brutally suppressed an uprising by the people of Warsaw, mercilessly killing hundreds of thousands of civilians and razing the city.  In this video, contributor Mackox flew a drone over the celebration marking the 74th anniversary of this important historical event.
