Do visit the old town, and climb the 140 stairs to the top of the viewing tower, worth the effort. Lots to see from the old town

The rebuilding after WW2 is authentic and the square looks pretty, just like many others in Europe. just be aware it is a rebuild, albeit a ,good quality one.

The square itself was beautiful, but the caffes in the square were really too expensive and ruined the joy of visiting.

This is a classic european square and well worth visiting. I didn't eat there as all the restaurants looked touristy (which is to be expected) but they certainly add atmosphere.

Visited in December, looks very quaint and postcardy. Did not see any markets but it was snowing. Plenty of places to eat, drink and buy tacky gifts. After dark, there is a light show, things are projected onto the buildings which looks amazing. Worth walking through the old town and castle square in the dark, just to see these light... More

This square is very nice with lots of restaurants and flower stalls all around. The houses around the square have a nice architecture.. Similar to the square in Cracow , however I found the square in the latter city nicer.

I suggest not only to visit this place but also learn its history. It will give you an extra depth. Where else would you go in Warsaw?

Great to go and see! Good restaurants and bars - a great atmosphere. To see the Old Town very quickly there is a small tourist train that costs ZL 25. I stayed at hotel in Old Town for 5 days - each day was a pleasure.
