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.

Amazing place to have a walk in Warsaw! An old castle and buildings mixed with a modern cafe, horse riding, lots of museums and gift shops. This place is always busy with tourists, local people, and different shows.

At least in the old part of town everything is pretty and colorful, just look at the red in this buildings, you will learn if you ask that most of this was rebuilt after the WWII so everything looks kind of new, but the simple fact...

This is a really big square with a net of small streets of old town. There always are lots of people walking around. A small market is located next to the castle.

I was here twice (first time at spring). And second time (30th of December) there was an amazing weather (few degrees below zero, snow and clear sky). Illumination of the Royal castle is amazing! Just see some photos:

This square is wonderful during the Christmas season. The area is replete with holiday lights and the centerpiece is a spectacular several stories high Christmas tree with changing light patterns and huge lighted presents underneath. It is a hub area, with the old,town and Rynek on one side, Nowy Swiat on another, and the entrance to the Christmas market a... More
