Of course it is a must-see sight, though small. But I hear that it is entirely rebuilt and not really old. It is almost as beautiful as old town in Prague.

This isn't the most breathtaking place in the morning as mentioned we walked from our accommodation to here and were a little underwhelmed. But as we walked around and soaked up the other small alley streets and beautiful cafés we really liked this area! I would recommend the old town but probably (as mentioned below) go around lunch/ dinner!

Warsaw was destroyed during World War II, the same was for the old town. But after the war it was rebuild. But the rest you can read, but the best is it you can check it out by yourself!

Although old city of Warsaw was completely destroyed during the WWII it is still worth to go there. Those who rebuild the Old Town did a great effort so one can feel the real ambiance of haw was it in Warsaw in the XIX century. Highly recommended.

The view as you're walking into Old Town via the Royal Route is unforgettable! Sigmounds column with the red castle on the right and the beautiful cathedral in the background is so beautiful. Perfect picture. Take time to climb to the top of the viewing tower at St. Anne's church for a 360 view of Warsaw. You can see over... More
