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.

Warsaw's old town is actually quite new; the result of a reconstruction process worthy of admiration for its attention to details. It is easy to get lost in the little streets and forget about time is the quaint and wonderful region of town.

The fact that this is a rebuild of the old town, following World War Two, only adds to the history. The rebuild was done to meticulous detail, such that you wouldn't realize it wasn't the original. The fact that it is a UNESCO registered site just proves how amazing this place is.

My favourite in Warsaw! It look a bit like Brugge in Belgium. A big square with old coloured house around it. In the middle there are restaurants. Around the square there are small street. You can walk to the river and from that point you can see the Football stadium.

Most foreigners would not know that, Unilever, say, Cracow, Warsaw old town was nearly completely destroyed by Germans following Warsaw Uprising 1944 and was carefully rebuilt accordingly to old plans and photos in the 40-ties and 50-times.
