Beautiful locale, great weather, many people. Liked the horses and carriages, as well as the costumed bear and panda. Must see in Warsaw.

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.

This square has the statue as its centerpiece, surrounded by colorful and interesting buildings. Sit at a sidewalk cafe and people watch and include a hello to the giant panda who sits there most days. Children love having their photo taken with him and he must be so hot inside that suit, but he is on roller blades so can... More

Although the square in Cracow is larger and more impressive, I still live this one very much too. It has also a fairy tail kind of feeling to it. Love the colors, the different designs and decorations. Would love to hang out longer on a warm summer night.

You pass this place when you visit the old town. The whole place is quite impressive, knowing that all has been rebuild 65 years ago. It is good to walk around and to sit down now and then to think what has happened her 75 years ago. Impressive to see all the pictures on how it was after the war... More

It is identical to what you have imagined seeing the photos… in fact much brighter and beautiful to look at. It’s a very popular place for tourist and locals. You can easily spend over 2 hours here relaxing sipping coffee or enjoying Pizza/ Ice cream and Waffle. Other ways to wild time here is watching people sketching, street shows and... More

Old Town is beautiful and walking through it is one of the best parts. It is very touristy, but worth it. Don't miss the sad Panda who sits in Castle Square most days. Just one of the quirky things about Warsaw.

It is located in Old Town, so while your there walk through it and take it in. If walking isn't your thing think twice about going to this area just for Castle Square.

It took long time to rebuild the Royal Castle on this square. Again the Germans at the end of the WW II leveled this gem. They also destroyed the column in front which is now a land mark of this city. The view of the ramparts, of the castle , the Krakowskie Przedmiescie street and the bridge across the river... More
