A lovely place to be both during the day and in the evening. It is probably one the prettiest piazzas in Europe and totally unspoiled. A lovely place to have a drink after dark, very romantic.

At the beginning of the Old Town coming from the Presidential Palace in Krakowskie Przedmoescie street you will find the Old Town Market Square. It is a big Square with an intriguing sculpture in the middle - I am not saying what it represents and I leave it up to to to decipher it. The area looks like the real... More

To think this was flattened by the Nazis, its beauty and charm have been recreated with love and care. The whole of the old town and the adjoining new town: Stare Nowy can be enjoyed through a leisurely stroll

A must see as is the oldest part of Warsaw besides being one of the most prominent tourist attractions. Lined with restaurants, cafés and shops along with its surrounding streets featuring medieval architecture is quite an experience for city folk like myself.

It's pretty incredible that the square is an exact replica of what used to be before the war. When you realize how much detail had to go into making it, it really is an incredible site.

A very attractive, pleasant and tradional 'old town' area of central Warsaw; rebuilt in huge detail after WW2 and as labours of love by locals to allow them to try to keep and remember some of their culture and environment. Traditional Polish places, music and costumes in impressive setting and even some good views over Warsaw. Enjoyable and also amazing!

this square is small when compared to Cracows main square but very nice place to sit and enjoy the ambiance nevertheless.
