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.

Another awesome world heritage, the old town has historic buildings, beautiful views and the surrounding "castle" line walls. The horse wagon ride and the colorful with many flavor ice cream make this old town more attractive. We were lucky to enjoy the local "musician" playing by the famous sculpture while we "sightsee" all the ancient beauties around the square. Of... More

I just loved it! Beautiful city! Easy to wonder around day and night! People you can talk to and ask for help. Great architecture and lovely sense of a city. You can find everything around and that makes it wonderful!!

We had a few visits to Old Town in the daytime. Interesting buildings, Beautiful Wall, taking a horse drawn carriage ride very inexpensive and worth it! Would love to return. Bus and trolley easy to get around the city on.

We were robbed of all our belongings in a well rated apartment in old town Warsaw 3 days ago. Police did not seem surprised! Still waiting for hear back from them. Not only our vacation is completely ruined but my 10 year old is traumatized and devastated. Stay away!

If you visit Warsaw, do not bypass here. Besides being the core heritage, it is a nice walkway with many modern ingredients embedded in it. The best aspect of this place to me is that it is alive. I mean, there are some sort of organized activities on the street. And do not miss the Chopin benches spread around. On... More

I so loved visiting this part of Warsaw, the buildings are colourful and interesting, each with their own different character. Despite most of the old town being reconstructed due to its destruction during the Second World War, at times you can easily imagine yourself back in medieval times as it really is so authentic having been recreated from paintings of...

If one wants to go out at night in Warsaw, this seems to be the place to go. Even at 2300 on a weeknight, there were plenty of people and much action. The restaurants were quite full and busy. There is a big plaza opposite the scenic and historic recreated King's Palace. There are street performers there. The recreated town... More

The old town it is nice but very "commercial" in terms of... a postcard done for the tourist to take a picture. But it is Ok if you are curious and start finding your own way. With churchs and narrow streets. This is a good area for the typical polish pasta, icecreams and beers. Nice as the very first contact... More
