“Beautiful square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

You are taken back in time here - look around and see the perfectly painted houses - and all different colours and designs. There are the horse drawn carriages, little quaint restaurants, interesting shops and marvellous cobblestones. Careful if walking in stilletos!

“The old Beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Visiting it in winter, we managed to visit the old town with the hustle and bustle of the holidays. The square was full of stalls making up the Christmas market. A large Christmas tree is also found in between the stalls. The buildings themselves are beautiful with some great architecture and colorful walls. Make sure to taste some of the local pirogi.

Great old town with great architecture highly recommended to visit!
