Warszawa is the main economic and business centre of the country, and one of the most important and largest metropolises of Central-Eastern Europe, with a huge investment potential. Warszawa is the capital of Poland and the largest Polish city with its population estimated at over 1,720 thousand residents.

Warszawa is an academic, cultural and political hub on European scale. Polish Parliament, the President, the Cabinet and other central authorities have their seats here. With 66 universities, the capital is the largest academic centre in Poland. Among the largest and best ranked Warsaw universities are University of Warsaw, Warsaw University of Technology, Warsaw School of Economics and Medical University of Warsaw.

According to a survey conducted in 2011 by Cushman & Wakefield, Warszawa is the most attractive location in Europe when it comes to the cost of office space in relation to its standard. An undeniable trump of the capital are its habitants. The majority of them are people in working age, with high qualifications and good command of foreign languages. Additionally, costs connected with employing qualified workforce in Poland are still lower as compared with those in Western Europe.

Warszawa is one the first three metropolises favoured by European entrepreneurs. According to ECER-Banque Populaire’s ranking (2010) the capital of Poland stands out as the city with facilitated access to financing and flexible labour law.

The city’s rating, for years remaining at a stable A2 level according to Moody’s Investors Service, also is a decisive factor when choosing Warszawa as a business city. In the 2011 Forbes’ ranking Warszawa overtook Vienna and Prague.
