The buildings are beautiful, the history is interesting, and the people watching is great. Be sure to see the Little Insurgent Monument, which commemorates the children who served as frontline troops in the battle against the Nazis. You can't miss it, because it is always covered with flowers and lit with votive candles. On a lighter note, the horse drawn... More

Cosy place for a stroll. Lots of pretty buildings, restaurants and artist showing and selling their paintings and sculptures. A fine place to visit, while being in Warsaw

Great atmosphere, especially in the summer. Buzzing with life, people, artists. Surrounded by cafes and restaurants where you can sit and chill out all from breakfast through lunch, to dinner - a great way to spend a hot summer's day. The charm of the square is enhanced by being pedestrianised, so need to watch out for cars. Check out some... More

You have to remind yourself that this was destroyed then rebuilt. Take particular note of the artwork that adorns the side of the buildings. Stunning.

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.
