Away from the tourists sits this lovely area, all the places to eat, shop, poke around. Take a moment, have a bite of something nearby and enjoy the setting. Great views around the square.

Central, everything "modern" as per say is within this side of Warsaw. All major attractions, shops etc, you name it.

New town square is a beautiful area in Warsaw. There is nothing super special to do so the spot is very quick to visit.

It was fun to see the difference from the new town square and the old town square. Nice houses surround the square and there are several restaurants on the square where you can have a nice meal or get ice cream. Not that far from old town so worth a short walk to check it out.

New town square is a nice plaza lined with 2 and 3 story classicist townhouses, several restaurants and a small but pleasant church. There are quite a few trees lining the sidewalks which gives it the feel of a small town square. It is quanit and not as crowded as the old square, but the buildings are quite generic and... More

During all the year this cute square is full of markets, like Christmas ones, with handmade souvenirs, sweets, chocolate and hot wine. The church is a perfect background for the happy atmosphere.

Even though several hundred years older than the rebuilt Old Town Square, New Town Square is not as picturesque. Take a look at the far side to the Nuns of the Holy Sacrament church.
