Nice place even in winter

One of the mainplace of Warszawa, just near the old walls. It is also the beginning of the old town. In Christmas the place is illuminated, really nice.

Smaller than Krakow this is not the social hub of the city. There are restaurants and bars but they tend to close early. Apparently the residents are old and resist late opening so the place closes down at about 10.

Center of the downtown and old town. You can take great pics and buy souvenirs over there. A lot of restaurants and shops are there as well. The castle, the St. Anne's churche and a couple of other attractions are there.

We visited during Winter, and the Christmas lights were lovely, with a giant Christmas tree and large scale projections of snowflakes on the Royal Palace.
