Great architecture

Great place to visit. Lots of very nice ice cream shops here. Some wonderful buildings here nearly all rebuilt as there were distorted in the war.

I like the local feel more than the touristy feel of the old town market square... But is nice to see that they rebuilt the town square so accurately!

Beautiful square. I have only visited in winter and it is truely beautiful. I have been told that in the summer the market is bursting with energy. I'd very much like to see this. The winter I first visited it was so cold, that you had to keep nipping inside and there are plenty of shops, bars and little nooks... More

The endless thing you can do around the square, bars, restaurants and touristic attractions. I bought a chess board handcrafted made!

Great spot for people watching and taking in the heart of Old Town. Same Fusy tea shop just steps away too (My quiet underground tea shop just steps away. I have been coming here for decades.)

Part of Old Town, its vastness, peacefulness & atmosphere linger even to date. You just want to sit back & relax & reflect on the amazing quality of the people who thought of such place, planned & designed & eventually built.

The old town market square is a bustling square surrounded by multicoloured buildings. Worth a visit for a relaxed wander.

This is a perfect place to have a lunch during your stay in the Old Town in Warsaw. Big selection of restaurants, from cheap (like Bazyliszek) to more expensive (Fukier). Better stay away from "Kuchnia warszawska". If you are lucky you can enjoy Summer Jazz Festival for free.

Excellent! Very well kept and clean. A place to see in Warsaw. The sightseeing is an easy way to go through the main city attractions and coming back again.
