- see what was left in Warsaw after WWII as it was destroyed in 85%

- learn why the Old Town is signed into the UNESCO list although it is all reconstructed after WWII

- listen to Chopin music and find out where he lived and played his first concert

- see where Madame Curie did her first experiments

- hear anecdotes about the Palace of Culture and Science, the main symbol of communism in Poland
