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...

The houses, streets and environment remember some scenes of movies about II World War. Very clean place and secure.

A beautifully restored main square, leading to smaller squares but walk along the streets-there is a lot to see. Cafes everywhere

Compared to many others in Europe, it is very small and the main street that goes south probably offers more. There are some good souvenir shops in the side streets and I found a great Polish donut and iced coffee in one of the cafes.

Very nice, would never know that is was all rebuilt. The mermaid statue in the square and all the cafes indoor and out, also the stores. Do not forget the numerous ice cream shops. Lovely to stroll day or night. We did not get to sit outside, a little too damp and chilly. We had wonderful meat pierogi in one... More

It's lovely to wander round here. super atmosphere with dancing folk, mime artists, stalls etc. However good the buildings look they were rebuilt in the 50's onwards as Warsaw was flattened in WW2. Well done but not authentic.
