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

This square lies north of the Old Town and is connected to it by Freta street. It is a picturesque square not so busy of course like the old town square and with a Church of Saint Casimir (built at the end of XVII Century). You do not have much to do here, just take a couple of photos 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.

I didn't like this square: too big and empty. It is closer to the old square and you have to see it even if it isn't nothing special.

New Town Square is the "other" square (as opposed to Old Town Square). It is a big and beautiful square located close to the Ulica Freta (Freta street). In the square, there are a lot of restaurants, bars and a big church (St Kazimierz Church), but it has not the charm of the Old Town Square, New Town Square is... More

We had a stop over flight and spent the entire day in this area with the kids. There were beautiful restaurants, shops and historic sights. The area was well kept, renovated, clean. What a nice memory. We ended up spending the day again on our way back from our trip. A nice cultural experience. So worth it.
