On the edge of Old Town great view of Old Town as well as the new stadium. Perfect spot for a meet up and almost always something going on here. Also usually where the fire throwers perform at night.

I fell in love with this square, its buildings, its cafes and its people.This was the biggest surprise for me coming to Warsaw - I had absolutely no idea this city hides such treasures (including the rest of the Old Town).

this is also another reconstructed monument and it is not that important to see inside. It is not clear what really represent what it was in the past and becomes like a symbol more than a place to get into.
