A square with character

Visited on June, it has very nice atmosphere with many restaurants around. I enjoyed my dinner hearing classic music from a band in the middle of the square. Fantastic

I was a little disappointed in Old Town. The area is beautiful but it was hard to figure out where anything was. Maybe a little too put together or new feeling. Just not what I was hoping for.

Its very lively at night with many restaurants supporting large outdoor seating areas. Many have blankets if you get chilled. There are buskers for entertainment, tour groups visiting the mermaid fountain and usually a guy dressed up as a polish king for picture taking. Its fun to watch the crowd while you eat.

Plenty going on - a nice place to sit and people watch - it was however 30 degrees so you definitely needed to find shade. Plenty of cafes and restaurants and little shops down the side streets - if you are into amber there are lots of choice of shops.

Warsaw isn't that big of a city and therefore it's almost a must any tourists (as well as locals) would visit the Old Town Market Sq. It has preserved the history in many of its architecture but compared to Prague and Paris, it doesn't have a wow factor, except the many amber shops...
