“Visit this square on your way to the old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014

This square has the statue as its centerpiece, surrounded by colorful and interesting buildings. Sit at a sidewalk cafe and people watch and include a hello to the giant panda who sits there most days. Children love having their photo taken with him and he must be so hot inside that suit, but he is on roller blades so can escape at any moment. One side of the square contains the Royal Castle which is well worth a visit.

“I love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Although the square in Cracow is larger and more impressive, I still live this one very much too.
It has also a fairy tail kind of feeling to it. Love the colors, the different designs and decorations.
Would love to hang out longer on a warm summer night.

“Nice venue walking around in warsaw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

You pass this place when you visit the old town. The whole place is quite impressive, knowing that all has been rebuild 65 years ago. It is good to walk around and to sit down now and then to think what has happened her 75 years ago. Impressive to see all the pictures on how it was after the war and how it has been rebuild.

“For a beautiful evening...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

It is identical to what you have imagined seeing the photos… in fact much brighter and beautiful to look at.
It’s a very popular place for tourist and locals. You can easily spend over 2 hours here relaxing sipping coffee or enjoying Pizza/ Ice cream and Waffle.

Other ways to wild time here is watching people sketching, street shows and lot more…. Evenings would be the best time to visit.

“Great people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Old Town is beautiful and walking through it is one of the best parts. It is very touristy, but worth it. Don't miss the sad Panda who sits in Castle Square most days. Just one of the quirky things about Warsaw.
