Beautiful square with stunning buildings, lots of history & culture. We visited specifically for the Christmas markets- there was an ice rink in the Centre & a number of stalls selling bratwurst & gluwein etc. Really good atmosphere, lots of choices of restaurants.

Lovely old town market square Lots of fascinating shops,bars and restaurants. The buildings are fascinating . It is hard to believe that it has all been rebuilt after being flattened in world war 2. A must see when visiting Warsaw.

It is amazing how this has been rebuilt after the devastation of World War 2. There are information boards around the area with photos taken then. It's a busy square with lots of places to eat and drink and in the center the mermaid statue.

It’s hard to miss if you are walking around the old town as many of the winding roads pass through here. It’s a lovely large square surrounded by beautiful buildings with shops and restaurants scattered around. Recommended.
