It's not my favorite European market square, but it does have some interesting buildings to look at and shops to peak in.

A beautiful spot to sit and relax in a busy day. In the winter there is a skating rink around the mermaid. This is where the Christmas markets are set up over (the extended) holiday season. Bright and colourful, enjoy a Lompoc to warm up in winter.

This spot is a good photo op. There also are artists displaying their work if you're interested in bringing something home other than the usual trinkets.

Fascinating wandering around the Old Town Square taking in the intricate detail that has been replicated. Hard to believe this was actually left as a flattened ruin in 1945 by the Germans. Plenty of photo opportunities - and make sure you explore the tiny streets off the square otherwise you will miss some hidden gems.

Went to Old Town twice. Once for the 3 Kings celebration day. Another for shopping and photography. It is a small area so easy to walk around. Warning: the taxis that wait on the street will charge you 4 times what others will charge for a ride. Suggest walking or walk away from Old Town and get a taxi many... More

This is not a square to compare to Krakow or Prague. It is relatively small and intimate. There are bars and restaurants but this is not the social heart of the city and gets quiet at about 10:00 at night. Most of the buildings were rebuilt after WW2 but in the style of the 1900's.

Like many other european cities, Warsaw has its spirit in old colorful buildings with red roofs and different kind of windows. The center is not huge, but there are a lot of things to see, souvenir shops to visit and nice cafes to drink coffee.. I like :)
