After being leveled when the Nazis left, this whole neighborhood of cobblestone Gothic streets and alleyways, baroque palaces, numerous churches and tiered burghers' houses were masterfully reconstructed to reflect the atmosphere of bygone days.

Old town is a nice historical centre, beautiful for walks, sitting in cafes etc. Unpleasant was that we met many homeless people asking for money :(.

I recommend to visit Old Town for a day or two. There are plenty small streets, churches, cafes and gifts shop. You can see the Royal Castle from outside and inside. There are small steps beside The Castle which will lead you to The River Vistula. From The Old Town you can easily walk through the other parts of city... More

We came here on a lovely summer day. The courtyard restaurants are a delightful place to have lunch. Unfortunately, they don't open early. I think we had to wait until noon for the one we wanted. This is NOT the original old town...that was destroyed in WW2. But through painstaking renovation, the entire area was rebuilt to look like the... More

We visited old town around 8am, in an attempt to beat the crowds of tourists. It was truly beautiful, not even the rain showers could deter people from visiting. There's not a lot 'to do' per Se, but definitely worth a visit.
