This part of the city was carefully rebuilt as it used to be before the war. It is a beautiful part of town. Hard to believe it was all reconstructed only 60 years ago! I recommend to visit old town for a day stay here for lunch or dinner you will find it cheaper then anywhere else in Warsaw!

We were headed home from a family trip and stayed two days in Warsaw. During this time we had our seven month old out in Old Town with us and all of us enjoyed all the sights and restaurants! The people watching was great too! Plenty of little shops and places to eat and well worth the tram ride or... More

It was colorful and within easy walking distance of Victoria Sofitel Hotel. Also within walking distance to the tomb of the unknown soldier.

We have just returned after a short break to Warsaw, the old town is definitely worth a visit the buildings look like they have come out of a fairy tale. The Christmas lights around the old town are amazing. Give the Christmas markets a miss better markets in the UK.

It is to imagine that none of the Old Town is over 60 years old. (Blame the Nazis) The polish people have done a wonderful recreation & reconstruction of the original buildings from the 16th hand later centuries. There are many reasonable restaurants in this area,and one is spoiled for choice with eating establishments.

I loved the old town even though much of it has been rebuilt to replicate Warsaw before the bombings of the 2nd World War . Make sure you buy one of the ice creams, about 10cm high , like the old dairy creams. The day I was there a lot was happening: Memorial Service in the street, and the students... More

Walking around the Old Town, you'll feel like you're in a fairy tale. While its completely reconstructed (thanks Germany), the beauty remains. You'll fall in love here, guaranteed, just like I did.
