Warsaw is a large city of about 1,600,000 people, with over 2,000,000 living in the Greater Warsaw area. It is located in central Poland on the River Vistula, near its confluence with the River Bug. The city stretches 29 km from west to east and 27 km from north to south, occupying a total area of 495 square km. Because of its status as the Polish capital, Warsaw is the main political, economic, cultural and academic centre of the country, with such significant institutions as the Warsaw Stock Exchange, the National Bank of Poland and the headquarters of many other banks and Polish branches of foreign companies, as well as all the key government institutions. The city is also the capital of the Mazovia Province. Warsaw lies in the heart of Poland, within the area of as many as four different geographical units.
Warsaw holds some of the finest institutions of higher education in Poland. It is home to four major universities, especially The University of Warsaw and Warsaw University of Technology, and over 62 smaller schools of higher education. The overall number of students of all grades of education in Warsaw is almost 500,000. The number of university students is over 280,000. Most of the reputable universities are public, but in recent years there has also been an upsurge in the number of private universities.
The history of Warsaw can be discovered by visiting many tourist attractions located around the city, e.g. the St. Mary's Church from the 1411 located in Warsaw New Town, which is one of the oldest buildings in Warsaw and one of the few remnants of Gothic architecture. Most of the city was leveled during World War II. After the war many of the historic streets, buildings and churches were restored to their original form.
