Travel contributor, Michelle Atagana shares her experiences of the Capital of Poland, Warsaw with CapeTalk's Africa Melane.

CapeTalk's Travel guide feature brings you a conversation about the life and Culture of the Capital of Poland, Warsaw with travel contributor, Michelle Atagana.

Atagana speaks to CapeTalk's Africa Melane about her experience of this River-City.

She says she calls Warsaw a "study in resilience" because the city was rebuilt from ground up after Worl War II.

It is all these buildings that are being replicated from the pictures. It looks amazing just the resilience of the country and the city just to do that after the devastation during World War II.

Michelle Atagana, travel contributor

Something you never ever say to the Poles is that you can see a resemblance of Russia in Warsaw, they don't want to hear it but they know it is true because it is there.

Michelle Atagana, travel contributor

When you walk Warsaw, it is an eclectic design, there are pieces of Paris, Italy and China. It is a city that is just amazing, it is a juxtaposition of stuff.
