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.

Very beautiful area, the main square in particular is lovely. It has obviously been rebuilt but all the building fronts look just like you are on a film set. Worth going up to the observation terrace to see it from up high. Also worth visiting during the day and at night as there is lots.of entertainment and live.music in the evening.

It does not matter what time of the day you visit there is always something happening, street performers, buskers, ice cream sellers, loads of bars & restaurants, so many things to do and see.

An excellent place to people watch or just lose yourself in the crowd

I love it. You can see how much beautiful Warsaw was before WWII. Even if you stay in the city only for a couple of hours don’t miss it!

A quaint and compact old town where you can walk the old town walls. Contains some small, but friendly bars, cafe's and restaurants. Quite 'touristy' but well worth a visit.

Walked the cobblestone streets, attended an inexpensive ($5) organ recital in a beautiful cathedral, and ate a tasty, cheap lunch, all without breaking a sweat.

I liked the old town very much. There are amazing buildings, nice architecture, many restaurants, some gift shops, street musicians and very good atmosphere. We visited Krakow before and I think this place is much better than old town in Krakow.

Amazing sight especially when you learn about the history. The food around is also really good despite being the centre of tourism.

Gawel gave a great overview and context. Terrific start to any visit to Warsaw. Gawel's knowledge and love of history became infectious.
