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.

Something funny you might not know. Warsaw people rarely go to old town, it's mostly for tourists. Locals go to the New World ( Nowy swiat )

Great spot for pierogy. If you're looking to buy Zapiekanka and are going to Krakow shortly, I reccomend you buy one in Krakow as in Warsaw they are pretty plain.

The old town (not strictly all that old as it was completely rebuild after the second world war but to as close as possible, recreate the original) it had a really nice friendly feel to it and there are so many restaurants and bars to choose from as well as many sights to see. At the moment you would think... More

Unfortunately we visited in the winter and on a Sunday so not a lot was open. It was also very cold which perhaps contributed to it being very quiet. Maybe I was expecting just expecting too much but all in all it was a very average place, nothing special and when compared to many, many other beautiful cities it just... More

I've been to wander through the Old Town a couple more times since my first visit in 2015, and it always lures me back. It's a vibrant place with a rich atmosphere. You can find new sights and sounds aplenty, or once again appreciate the old favourites. The churches dotted around the square are breathtaking, the old buildings possess fine... More

85% of Warsaw Old Town was destroyed in 1944 and the people have done an amazing job of restoring the unique buildings and castle. A fairly small Old Town for a capital city, we got to explore it all in a day. The walk was nice in the evening from our hotel and the the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier"... More

Amazing that it's rebuilt after world war 2. Plenty of cafés and art galleries. Probably very touristic during summer.

The Old Town in Warsaw is great. There is so much to offer here - historic points, food and drink, shopping, and of course entertainment. Historically speaking, you have access to a variety of spots including the castle, and the old wall. There are views to be had from a number of locations which make it great for taking photos....
