Abstract: The Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) is currently the world's largest survey aimed at searching for variability on the sky. Currently, the project monitors the brightness of about two billion objects in the densest stellar regions of the sky: central regions of the Galaxy, the Galactic disk, and the Magellanic Clouds. The OGLE Collection of Variable Stars currently contains over 125,000 RR Lyrae stars and 13,000 Cepheids of various types. Recently, OGLE has greatly extended the list of known classical Cepheids in the Milky Way disk and used them to explore the structure, dynamics, and history of our Galaxy. We present these results as well as other most spectacular latest OGLE discoveries in the field of classical pulsators.
