Warsaw, the Polish capital city, is the country's most dynamic area. It has been attracting many expatriates over the years thanks to its open labor market and its developed and robust economy.

Warsaw has inherited a strong economic growth during the 2nd half of the 20th century, sustained by a planned economy in the 1990s. Nowadays, the Polish capital city is deemed to be a continuously developing and improving economy. In fact, it hosts more than 60 higher education institutions which make up its education hub, as well as various industries. Note that Warsaw is also known to be Central Europe's cultural, financial and economic heart.
