This is off Castle Square and as with Castle Square, it is tunning in good light, fun, lots of good restaurants & cafés, and wonderful museums. Make time and plans to visit the Warsaw Museum in the Old Market Square. Absolutely worth the time.

This square is surrounded by beautiful town houses and there are many restaurants and cafes with open air eating.

Like almost everything in the Old Town, this square and all the houses were rebuilt after the war according to their original form. In the middle of the square there is a statue of a mermaid, the protector of the city of Warsaw.

The most important part of the Old Town, the main square is surrounded by beautiful town houses and full of restaurants and cafes. Definitely a place to go to if you are in Warsaw - especially if you've never been here before!

Beautiful square with some amazing ornate buildings. On a par with Brussels square for magnificence. Lots of bars and restaurants with open air eating & drinking. Also lots of benches to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

The square didn't have the usual happenings. In fact, it was completely empty with just one shop open.

This place is like no other. You can find old photographs of how the square looked after the bombings, the effort to rebuild it is remarkable.
