Good place to hang out at the end of a long day. Lots of restaurants, cafes and bars. The Christmas market was still up in in February. We had some warm gluh-wine which felt great in the cold weather. Amazing that they've rebuilt the place completely after WW2.

A joyous way to see the streets on a cold winters day snug... More

Once you're in Old Town everything is quite close. Sit at a café and enjoy the views while you rest.

Worth a wander around this old square, lovely old buildings to marvel. Still decked out with fairy lights and wooden huts selling various gifts and Polish delicacies, mulled wine was excellent!

This square is walking distance from the Royal Castle. This is the heart of old town Warsaw. The architectural of those buildings within the square does shows it s old age.
