We did a free walking tour of the old market square in Warsaw by Patricia. She was fantastic . Very witty and new her stuff. Made the tour very interesting. We enjoyed the tour. Our children 10 and 14 were not bored. Understood and enjoyed the little stories she told us about various structure, the market place, building and area... More

I was slightly disappointed with the Old Market Square. It felt quite claustrophobic and the restaurants all felt very similar. It's an enormous tribute that the whole square has been rebuilt in its original form but to me it felt like a museum rather than living square. Very atmospheric though ... just not for me.

Full of flowers. Very clean. Live & lovely place. Just walk there and you can feel a mixture of beauty, relaxation, liveness and in the same time sadness to memory of died sinless people during world war

Although it does feel a bit artifical.. Having been totally rebuilt after wwii, it has been done with great attention to detail and the overall feel is fairly faithfully maintained... It lacks the atmosphere of nie traditional market squares such as krakow but still a great place to pass the time

It was lovely going for a walk in the evening while you could still see the buildings but the lights from the restaurants are lit up. Very pretty place.

It is unbelievable but most of the old city is a restoration done after the second world war. When you walk in streets you cannot tell what is old and what is actually new. Enjoy the coffee shops and don't forget to visit several sites along the path starting from the memorial for the fight for the protection of Poland... More

Visited here twice, once during the day & the other at night. Both times we found the Old Town Market Square busy (but not overly so) with all the cafes and bars doing a brisk trade. A really nice vibe about the place. Nice to see so many of the buildings have been lovingly restored with the remained undergoing work... More
