Beautiful square surrounded with buildings painted in different colour. UNESCO. Lots of restaurants and beer gardens during summer with a fountain with a mermaid in the middle of the square. Often some street artists are performing there.

The hardest thing is trying to figure out the best position to try and capture the prettiness of the square. A must on any trip to Warsaw.

In summer you can find it very crowded but only because a lot restaurants have summer terrace where u can find tasty food. Also architecture is very interesting.

I prefer Gdansk, 100% better. Disappointing although the architecture is good. Basically just a bunch of outdoor cafe set ups.

Great Market Place with plenty of options for food. Lined with shops and the mermaid statue that is the symbol of Warsaw. There is also a water fountain with good free drinking water. They did a great job in restoring this area.

The Old Town is beautiful, recreated after the war to match the original buildings. And the market square is a great place to grab a meal or a drink.

The old town of Warsaw is Absolutely Amazingly Awesome (AAAA) Polish heritage. It was of great joy 😂 & privilege to see in actual conditions rain ☔ or shine! As my album connotes " we are so... In ... Warsaw!"

It's pretty lousy place that has its own handsomeness. Try to visit it early morning that it's not too busy.
