It looks like Balamory, my partner said. Multi-coloured houses surround this delightful old town square, filled with restaurant/bars. Don't go without a camera.

Beautiful square with many restaurants, street performers, beautiful churches and wonderful people just enjoying a walk about. It is not so large to be overwhelming but we went back every day for 3 days and found something new to see and experience. Plenty of shops with the popular amber jewellery and the prices are fair. Local people are very friendly... More

All the buildings seem to surround you in this square. It is not a huge, sprawling square, and the buildings really make it feel cozy. Lots of little shops here, love the amber shops. Not a lot of souvenir shops but ones they have are very small, there is a grocery store (small but water or soda kind of things).... More

Cobblestone streets tough for some seniors. Ice cream is everywhere. Horse drawn ride is quaint. Plenty of places to sit outdoors for coffee.

Warsaw's Old Town is a tourist "mandatory subject". Dozens of small alleys with shops and cafes attract tourists like honey does bees ... You can spend all day here, if the small milieu begins to yawn in the end, you can easily expand the access on foot towards the new center of the city. Try also the little train that... More

Quaint and remarkably restored, the Old Town Market Square is quite a site to behold. Lovingly recreated (Warsaw was 90% destroyed during WW2) from old paintings and drawings the market square is a popular tourist destination. However I just couldnt shake the feeling that I was on a Disneyland set, everything just a little too perfect. That said, still worth... More

Each weekend the old town is full of people. Many restuarants, galleries and small shops. Worth taking a few minutes to admire the restored architecture (fully renovated after II World War)

We spent a long time sitting in the old town square. It was interesting for people watching and there was a comemorstion of the Warsaw Uprising with speeches and rousing songs, non of which we could understand but it al seemed very Polish.
