National Museum in Warsaw
The National Museum is a must-see for its impressive modernist building alone. Add to that its recently re-opened Faras Gallery, a one-of-a-kind exhibition featuring Nubian culture and art artefacts from the Christian period, and a visit is almost a requirement of any trip to Warsaw. The whole collection, including wall paintings from the 8th—14th century, came from the cathedral in the city of Faras, located on the Sudanese-Egyptian border. In addition, the other galleries, including the Gallery of Medieval Art and the Gallery of Old European Paintings, are also well worth seeing.
