There are a lot of tourists here, and a lot of chain restaurants. Be sure to look around for the best place to eat or drink as you have plenty of choice, if you go onto the beautiful side streets the prices will decrease significantly.

So nice to walk around in the old Town! Beautiful buildings and nice cafees. There's a lot of history in this city that has a rich and interesting history. It's also nice that there are both lively streets and some calmer ones.

We were here on the 15th August, the Polish National Holiday, local festival and a marathon, so it was very busy but still able to enjoy the city, main fine Buildings.

We were part of a guided tour from our cruise ship but left the tour to wander. We were surprised how lovely the city centre was - vibrant and charming at the same time . The weather helped, with lovely sunshine all afternoon. St Mary's basilica was a highlight but the whole area was just lovely.

We love walking through here during the summer. The streets are filled with people from all over the world. Actor dress the middle ages part. Children laugh, and you see the expression in people's faces of amazement of this city once owned by poland then taken by russia, then over thrown by germany, now back to to its rightful owner.

Loved the old town area. Wonderful markets of home produce when we were there. This area is a must ! Take a pirate ride up the river or the free walking tour through the town. Food here is great!

Recently took a two week trip to Europe with my son and Old Town was one of the highlights! The architecture is amazing, plenty of options for dining, and the street performers were fantastic!
