A compact place full of good value eateries and bars. Plenty of choices for food, prices to suit every pocket and a great place to watch the promenaders. We loved the great relaxing atmosphere and always felt safe. The buildings were wonderful and didn't feel as though they were recently built

At first, I respect Warsaw citizen, who restored this town from war destruction, though they are usually shy, moderate and kind. Then, this is a introduction to my review. Though here is bustling atmosphere with many tourists and very historical feeling, this town shows long Poland history - both rising/glorious and sad - silently. At first, there are photos of...

The old town is like many in europe, but is still great to visit. It feels quite lived in and more real than some others I've been to. The greatest irony and its point of difference is that it was all rebuilt after WW2, so none of it is in fact real but a recreation. It is great just to... More

Old Town of Warsaw (Stare Miasto) Visited there with my wife last August, we enjoyed it very much. Warsaw in general and especially the old town was totally destroyed during the WWII. The Old Town was reconstructing after the WWII reflecting the pre WWII Old Town. The old cobblestone streets are very beautiful and the houses provide a special atmosphere.... More

This is an exact duplication of the old town that was dynamited by the Nazi's in retaliation for the Warsaw rebellion. Gorgeous. A little sterile but exciting.

Lots of character and many old buildings that make the old town very picturesque. Big open squares, antique churches, cobbled streets and lots of al-fresco dining options.

Busy place with many cafés restaurants and bars. Overpriced amber and other jewelry for sale. We don't buy souvenirs, however, we went to the Warsaw Museum and were able to buy some black and white prints which I will later frame. They were 8 zloty each.

You can walk for hrs and admire rebuilt post 2WW colorful streets with its churches, monuments, cafes or just sit outside with cup of coffee, watch crowd passing by and enjoy sun.

The history, the people, the restaurants, the story of how it all was . The old city is a must while visiting Warsaw. Go visit the ild tow during day time, during night and on weekends while so many fun in the market place. It is amazing how all buildings were been recovered after being destroyed during WW2. On summer... More
