Great place to soak in the feeling of Warsaw! Its very picturesque and lively. As most squares go, I felt a bit like I was in Prague or Nice. Its a nice place to stop and have a bite and a drink and just get the feel of Poland. We had big softy ice-creams from a shop near the square.

The rebuilding of the Old Town and restoration of this historic part of Warsaw is a definite 'must see' part of anyone's trip to Warsaw. Good atmosphere and great restaurants can be found and personally, I found the Polish people very friendly and helpful.

A lovely place to walk around which has many attractions, bars cafes coming off it. Well worth a visit & recommend you take advantage of the "Free tour guides " that operate in the area. The Orange umbrella rep. was brilliant.

This is a beautiful square and it is amazing that the restored buildings are only about 60 years old having been restored mostly from the rubble after Warsaw was destroyed in the war.
