I took a walk up to the Market Square and was amazed that it had been totally destroyed during WW2 but from original drawing,s plans and photographs they reconstructed it. It is quaint and wonderful. Well worth a visit.

The Market Square you sveee all around you with the Old Town itself was rebuilt after the Second World War. The vindictive Nazi's were instructed by Hitler to raise the city to the ground following the defeat of the citizens of Warsaw in the Warsaw Uprising. Over 80% of the city was destroyed. Almost completely flattened as the "master race"... More

Favorite amber shop is in Old Town Market Square. Great place to try different restaurants, don't forget about the ones in the basement of the buildings, the buildings were destroyed during the war but many of the basements were not ruined. Say hello to the mermaid.
