Once known as “Paris of the East”, Warsaw is now called more fitting name of the “Phoenix City”. After surviving numerous hardships and destruction during World War II, the city was rebuild almost from scratch and what was lost in fire was replaced by new. This had a strong impact on Warsaw citizens’ mindset, making them people who can appreciate beauty even in its smallest forms. Doris Leslie Blau has always tried to bring the charm enclosed in antique rugs closer to people, closer to you. We opened our galleries in multiple locations in order to let you experience the sheer beauty of antique and vintage rugs and carpets with your own eyes and hands.

A dynamic metropolis, Warsaw is Poland’s capital and biggest city. Thanks to recent developments and companies deciding to make it their quarters, Warsaw is evolving rapidly. Numerous skyscrapers dot the city’s skyline, but among all newly erected buildings one can still find the parts of city’s history, which began in the 8th century. Warsaw grew from a small village near Vistula river into a considerable metropolis and political center of Poland. City’s historic center, full of charming cafes, elegant restaurants and antique buildings is a great place for a stroll, but also a world-class heritage site, acknowledged by UNESCO in 1980. Warsaw’s unique architecture, being a mix of ultramodern and traditional, makes it a popular tourist destination for those interested in history. The city also boasts some of the best universities in Poland with the University of Warsaw leading majority of rankings.
