There is a tall monument here. It is where the free walking tour of the old town begins. The old town was recently reconstructed with money from the Polish people, having been almost completely destroyed in the second World war.

Beautiful place with museums, statues, restaurants and cafes. They have a viewing tower by the church. Most of the time a lot of people around and some street artists.

This is a very romantic place, it has a spirit of old Europe. On the square are the street musicians. And when you get out of the restaurant, you can sit on a bench, admiring the architecture and listen to music.

When you're there, just read about the way the Poles rebuilt it against the Russians' plans. It is a very touching history.

We enjoyed walking the area around the square. Shop for Amber off the main streets and you may find a deal like we did! A wonderful atmosphere in the neighborhood, lots of great little shops and restaurants. Well worth the time you have to investigate the area!

2nd time in Warsaw and both times we have ventured into the old town, we have found this a good place to just stand and take in some of the surroundings. Nice view across the river on a clear day, where you can see the newish stadium that was built for the European Championships a few years ago. It also... More

Together with Rynek Starego Miasta (Old Town Square), the most beautiful square in Warsaw. The Royal Palace is surrounded by colorful medieval houses. It was entirely rebuilt after the Nazi-Germans destroyed Warsaw during World War II. On the square, you also have a very nice view on the National Football Stadium of Poland.

Looking at castle square now and seeing the before and after pictures makes this a must see. Also it is a meeting point for many of the free tours.
