After being leveled when the Nazis left, this whole neighborhood of cobblestone Gothic streets and alleyways, baroque palaces, numerous churches and tiered burghers' houses were masterfully reconstructed to reflect the atmosphere of bygone days.

I had heard much about the old town in Warsaw but little had prepared me for the combination of history, friendliness, variety and impressive architecture. It is beautiful and you simply cannot forget the moving and striking historic context. It was also noticeable how friendly and professional the staff were in any outlet we used. Highly recommended.

Incredible to say that 95% of town was destroyed in WW2. They have done an incredible job of reconstructing the buildings. Spend an afternoon and just wander!

My daughters and I spent 1 day in Warsaw. We walked to Old Town and enjoyed the ambience, history, and beauty of Old Town. What a delightful visit.

Some very nice bars and restaurants here at some good prices. Lot of shops selling amber as it's locally sourced. Would hire one of the tours instead of walking as they are cheap and you get to see a lot more. Some fantastic monuments.

It was exactly what I thought it would be... loads of tourists...and they know that this is the place to charge more for drinks and food... Go to Nowy Swiat to eat instead...

Have to visit and walking down the narrow streets, in particular during the night. Try Polish beer, and restaurants are not so expensive, unless they are touristic

On a sunny day I walked through the old town square, it is amazing to think that this has been rebuilt. I would recommend visiting it during the spring or summer as you will be bounded with people, coffee shops, ice creams, and fun around, nothing more you need to feel the pleasure of life than that.

Completely rebuilt after WWII, the Old Town is colorfull and full of life. There are souvenirs shops, restaurants, street artists everywhere. It is sad to think about how this place looked like in the past... It could be considered as a symbol of a new born City.

Loved all the temporary exhibits and artists performing in the streets. Nostalgic experience. Beautiful cafes, shops and restaurants, besides the stunning architecture :) People from all over the world.
