Despite being a restoration, destroyed during War World 2. It's been faithfully restored to its original state.

On the way to the old city, you should pass thru the Castle Square. The Castle is located on the right side of the square and in the middle you can find the King Sigismund's Column. It is a very nice place.

An absolute gem. Really beautiful Square, a focal point for all things good about Warsaw. Great vibe with crowds of tourists and locals alike, beautiful buildings, performance artists and verve. Loved it here, we kept going back night after night. No better place to spend a summers evening!

It is a large plaza (a must see before you head into the old town). When we went in November there was a small Christmas market on two sides of the square as well as a large Christmas tree in the centre.

Although it was a cool day, and the area was white, walked around a bit. In the area was "Christmas markets" along the pedestrian mall, nice and fun

The Royal road and old town are beautiful. This is a place everyone should visit. Great food, lots of restaurants and bars to choose from and prices much cheaper than other European Cities - lovely place for a few days
