"Dynamic, attractive and trendy” - this is how a five-page report on Warsaw begins in the July issue of French trade magazine Voyages d'Affaires. The article is the result of cooperation between Polish Tourism Organisation and the monthly’s editorial staff.
Author Georges Ainscough puts forward a thesis that Warsaw is a privileged destination for international investors. To support it he cites the classification conducted by Financial Times, which regularly ranks Warsaw fifth among Europe’s so-called business-friendly cities.
The list of other arguments supporting the idea of attractive Warsaw includes, most of all, safety and green areas, the fabulous promenade by the Vistula and eight city beaches. According to the French journalist, the price to quality ratio constitutes the final and irrefutable determining factor. Warsaw is a destination, where costs are adequate to the supply volume and take into consideration highlights available for visiting tourists, hotel prices, transportation, museum tickets, as well as catering services.
