During all the year this cute square is full of markets, like Christmas ones, with handmade souvenirs, sweets, chocolate and hot wine. The church is a perfect background for the happy atmosphere.

Even though several hundred years older than the rebuilt Old Town Square, New Town Square is not as picturesque. Take a look at the far side to the Nuns of the Holy Sacrament church.

I didn't like this square: too big and empty. It is closer to the old square and you have to see it even if it isn't nothing special.

New Town Square is the "other" square (as opposed to Old Town Square). It is a big and beautiful square located close to the Ulica Freta (Freta street). In the square, there are a lot of restaurants, bars and a big church (St Kazimierz Church), but it has not the charm of the Old Town Square, New Town Square is... More

We had a stop over flight and spent the entire day in this area with the kids. There were beautiful restaurants, shops and historic sights. The area was well kept, renovated, clean. What a nice memory. We ended up spending the day again on our way back from our trip. A nice cultural experience. So worth it.

A nice place with restaurants, cafes and bars around. Also a few small shops and a church. Statues and usually a bit of people.

New Town Square is the heart of the New Town of Warsaw (still very old). It is different from Old Town Square in the fact that it is much quieter and not surrounded by bars and restaurants. A place to escape the crowds of the Old Town.

I really like the new town square, the trees, the shades and nice cafeterias around. It's worth strolling around the streets nearby, going down to the fountains etc.

We took a taxi from the Hilton to the "Mamaison Hotel Le Regina" right on the edge of New Town (New Town is similar to Old Town except that it was built outside of the Old Town walls). There's a park overlooking the Wisla River with benches for a brief rest break. From there, walk back towards the hotel, turn... More

It is not so crowded as the old town market but the restaurants here are much better (but still expensive). In the summer every saturday there is a old/handmade things market!
