There are many wonderful town squares in the old cities of Europe, but Warsaw's is not only right up there with the best in terms of its beauty and its bustling community of horse-drawn carriages, sidewalk vendors, outdoor eating and drinking, craft shops and old traditional crafts being practiced in studios that haven't changed in centuries but, there's something much...

You cant find that feeling in the USA, as the old towns date to way before america was ever discovered by the settlers. Architecture methods that date before time. Though it all had to be rebuilt after WWII

The old town has been rebuilt using original architectural plans so it looks exactly as it did before being destroyed during the war.

It is fantastic to see that the city has been able to restore the area and the market Place identic to the old days before WW2. There are a lot of restaurants here, we chose just to have a drink. As the competition between the restaurant is vivid, we experienced good service on the different restaurants.

This Old town is surrounded in history in every direction. With plenty of restaurants and bars, you won't go hungry or thirsty. We went both during the day and at night it comes alive with street entertainers and a fantastic atmosphere.
