Beautiful pleace, should see ;)

From Wiki
The square is a hub for tourists and locals, who gather to watch street entertainers, participate in rallies, watch concerts and even engage in breakdancing. In 1997, at the Castle Square, U.S. President Bill Clinton gave a speech welcoming Poland to membership in NATO.[2]
Castle Square featured the United Buddy Bears exhibition in summer 2008 - an array of 140 two metre-high sculptures, each designed by a different artist, touring the world as a symbol of cultural understanding, tolerance and mutual trust.[3] According to official information, more than 1.5 million visitors were counted.

“Warsaw's beautiful landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

hard to believe this place was decimated and rebuilt from the old bricks. love to walk here and around the old square. Probably one of the prettier and livelier spots in Warsaw. Any time of day or year, but especially on a snowy winters day it is quite magical In a medieval sort of way.

“Very picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The square is a very pretty place, dominated by the Castle and surrounded by many excellent bars and restaurants. It is a good meeting point, especially for starting a walk round the old town and also gives great views acroos the river, towards Praga and the National Staduim.

The whole area around the square has been painstaking recreated and looks very authentic. Those responsible for the building of this area should be c ommended on their attention to detail and obvious pride in what they were doing.

“Beautiful at Christmas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Although the square truly is beautiful at Christmas, there are a lot of good reasons to visit this square at other times of the year too. There is often live music and this is always a bustling crowd of people. Don't miss the photo op of the National Stadium..
