The old town in Warsaw is relatively small, especially compared to the one in Krakow. However, in some ways, I liked it better, because I just could look around without having to bump into tons of tourists.

Warsaw if another beautiful city and the Old Town market square is no exception. Leave lots of time to browse here and also venture down some of the side streets. U will be amazed at what you find.

Build up after the 2WW. If you walk through old town you won't believe that this was all destroyed. Lovely houses and shops and restaurants/bars. A must in W.

You will meet similar market squares in many European countries. Here in Warsaw you should remember that almost all the city center was destroyed during the WWII. Houses were destroyed, but the spirit of the city was kept by the citizens and after the town was restored, its spirit was blown back into the squares and side-street of Warsaw. Enjoy... More

Beautiful place. We toured the Royal castle and stayed close by in a great B&B. Lots of great restaurants and shops. A bit touristy in the center, though Cloth Hall is an interesting building with small vendors inside and outside.

Beautiful collection of reconstruction of buildings to original plans, from as much as possible original materials, primarily good quality restaurants in the buildings and square.

These town squares in Poland are a real gem. So much culture, good food and friendly people. Watch out for the gypsies. Great atmosphere that takes you back into old times.

Even though this place is called the Old Town but, in fact, they are very recent, due to the bombing that destroyed 90% of the cities. It is a very nice effort of the city to recall something in the past for the city. I love the colorful houses. It can be so crowded during the afternoon and evening. Go... More

Plenty of street artists knocking out local views on prints. Lots of souvenir shops and eateries in the side streets.

The reconstructed Old Town Square is quite pretty. There are many restaurants that are established on the Square. It was also packed with people, mostly tourist and student groups. The restaurants on the Square had some pushy people that would try to get you to eat at their restaurants. Some were more than pushy, and actually really obnoxious.
