We visited Warsaw recently and walked around the old town a number of times. It is beautiful and what one sort of expects of a European town. It is filled with lovely arcitecture and cobbled streets. The signature building is the Royal Palace. There are, of course, a few tacky souvenir shops but good restaurants also abound. As you walk... More

When you enter town square, you get fascinated, so idyllic place filled with restaurants, bars, cafees, shops, historical buildings, old waterpost`s, tourist office and not to forget "Syrenka" Warsaw's armed Mermaid. Sitting with a glass of beer, and admire the scenery on the Square, horse-waggons crossing . You feel like you are in a postcard picture. It is fantastic. It... More

The initial area of Old Town was all but destroyed during the Nazi occupation of the city. Afterward, the city of Warsaw rebuilt the square to the exact specifications and appearance of the initial square. They did a fantastic job. Filled with restaurants, shops, cafes, bars and historical buildings, you could easily spend two or three days here meandering through... More

A charming old town centered around a town square which has been painstakingly rebuilt after it was destroyed by the Nazis. A great place for a wander.

The Old Town was exciting to see because it was very new to us. Especially in the evening, it was very nice with the lights. To recommend is the fountain which changes the light.

Nice place to walk, grab a bite, and pick a souvenir. Perfect for clicking some street scenes too. Nothing extra-ordinary though.

Having visited Warsaw for the first time I have been very surprised by the friendliness and the beautiful city. The old Town is so nice and is not overly expensive. With meals the equivalent to 5 to 6 pounds and beer approx. 1.20. Transport round the city is easy once you stand in the grounds of The Museum of Culture... More

It is truly beautiful and transports you back in time. We went here on a Sunday and it was very lively and filled with people. The squares were full of street performers and vendors, good for souvenir shopping. There are cafés and restaurants all over, we enjoyed sitting down for a cup of tea after walking all over he Old...
