Warsaw named European Best Destination 2023
Warsaw has taken the title of European Best Destination 2023, beating off stiff competition from 21 other cities also nominated.
Votes in the competition were cast by internet users worldwide and they decided the winning city.
Established in 2009, European Best Destinations is a travel website whose aim is to promote culture and tourism in Europe.
Dorota Wojciechowska, Director of the Polish National Tourist Office in London said:
“We are thrilled that Warsaw has got 2023 off to a flying start by being named the best European Destination. The city attracts a lot of overseas visitors who fall in love with the city year after year. I’m pretty sure that this title comes as no surprise to anyone who has been to Warsaw at least once in their lifetime!”
She added: “I want to sincerely thank everybody who took the time to vote for Warsaw and would also like to say congratulations to all of the other wonderful cities who were nominated”
Warsaw’s rich tourism appeal is evident. The city boasts a fascinating history, modern museums and art galleries, a packed calendar of cultural events, great culinary experiences and beautiful green spaces.
Above all, Warsaw stands out as an exceptionally open, safe and hospitable city.
The capital was the only Polish city nominated in the European Best Destination 2023 competition, and therefore represented the entire country in the battle for the prestigious title.
The win is welcome news and will enable Warsaw to rebuild its international tourist traffic after the losses of the Coronavirus pandemic, and exacerbated by the conflict in Ukraine.
