Nice restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops, historic ruins and much more. Good place to spend time. You won't realise how the time goes so fast.

When you visit Warsaw, you must go and see the Old Town. Although the Old Town is completely rebuild after WWII, you do not see this. (The original Old Town was completely destroyed during WWII). Nice squares, nice streets, beautifull area to walk through. In season there are nice terraces to sit outside on the squares to have a drink... More

The Old Town reconstructed as is was before it was destroyed in WW2 is a beautiful part of the city. There is a great atmosphere and you can spend several hours just walking around and soaking it up. There are lots of small resaurants and bars with many of them having outside seating during the summer months.

This is a very beautiful, old town, with really old churches and other buildings. The pavements are so lovely. I was there in November and they have lots of colorful display of lights and huge Christmas tree.

The Old Town was very nice and reflected how Warsaw previously looked. I found it very peaceful and I was able to relax walking around the various shops. The church was the highlight of the visit. The only downside was the lack of bars and restaurants that you would normally find in the centre of other European centres adding to... More

Even though this is all reconstructed, it is so well done that the old town is fascinating to visit and worth taking a meal either at lunch or dinner.

The best place in Warsaw - colorful people, tasty pirogi and not-so-expensive souvenirs. Very recommended to visit at 11-14 am. The old town leads to all the main attractions of Warsaw - Monument to the Warsaw Uprising Fighters, Royal Castle, The Market... We enjoyed the old city of Krakow much more..so this is why I give only 4 stars.
