Nice place to walk by when in Warsaw. I've walked there two times and the second time it started snowing. It was a really great view and experience

This was a great old market town. It was lots of fun to meander through the streets, stopping in stores and ordering wonderful Polish delicacies. I highly recommend a visit to the market square.

The place was awesome, it has a lot of small shops and restaurants some of them specialize in ice-creams. At evenings before the dawn there are some street performer's shows, and they are quite interesting and fun, and it's a bit crowded.

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
