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.

Every day there are free guided walking tours. The young people who run them are excellent, and you just pay what you feel is right. It is a great was to learn a little about the history and get a feel for of any city.

Nice for an easy afternoon. There are some good restaurants at the main plaza. There are also several local stores. It gets crowded on sundays, as the locals go with their families.

I really like this open square! It's super pretty and totally worth visiting while in Warsaw. It's not too large, but is nicely placed between a few different areas of Warsaw. Not hard to get to via public transport and generally a nice place to explore and maybe grab a bit to eat!

It's a beautiful place even in winter when it rains. In Christmas, the light make it look like a Disney setting. And in summer it's full of life and light (musicians playing in the streets, people walking...). Although i have a bad time everytime the little kids start begging.

Very pretty part of town. I would recommend visiting Warszawa. The old town isn't as big as you find in Krakow, but worth a visit.

Old Town of Warsaw is really unique. The building is nice, eye catching and there's street musician and show that you can enjoy for free. Once you give a tip to street musician, you'll see their unique way to say thanks. Here in old town, you will easily find restaurant with tasty local food, souvenirs shop (price is affordable) and...

Nice part of this city and as you would expect plenty of street entertainment to amuse you. As ever it is well worth walking down all of the small roads which contain many little secrets. Felt safe walking through this district
