Warsaw is one of the most attractive cities in Europe. Prices are very low making it very interesting for us with euros. You can walk around the old city discovering so many interesting places in such a short distance. Museums, castles, churches, museums... If you are like me who enjoys history, art and culture you will be delighted to visit.

I actually thought this was the beautiful old town market square, but it is like an appetiser in a beautiful restaurant pulling you in towards the Old Town. I actually preferred this square, the Castle and the column and the views towards the bank of the Vistula and the Polish National stadium, which turns red and white in the evening.... More

Large, bright and airy square, perfect for meeting up with people, plenty to see and do and plenty of cafes and bars round the edge of the square.

We came across Castle Square while looking for the Old Town Market Square. To be honest I thought it was the square I was looking for but just couldn't find the mermaid! It was still all decorated for Christmas and must say I have never seen a Christmas tree so large in such beautiful surroundings! Very friendly local couple gave... More

This street has good location, very close to hearth of the city and the old town at the same time. I enjoyed examining the buildings here. Big Christmas tree was also shinny and beautiful. Nice square to take a walk to enter of the old town.

I liked the Castle Square. Our hotel was right across the square. Unfortunately, when I went to visit only the gallery was open. Not sure why the rest was closed. The young man at the information desk spoke great English and was full of good information to share with me. I was not disappointed as I had a short amount... More
