    A must see for any tourist visiting the town. Be sure to have a map, or check guides for the area to get the most out of it. there are also toured guides for many languages

    A beautiful part of the Warsaw with so much history one of the first things l notice was how beautiful each townhouse was painted and the detail in the work which were all surrounding the square. Cetrepiece is the stature of the little mermaid of Warsaw which is the coat of arms of Warsaw city and considered the city's protector. Square offers so much from restaurants, bars. museums, art gallery, souvenir shops, Photo opportunities and in close walking distance to other attractions in Old Town.

    Lovely place to get lost when is raining or snowing… on the ground floor you have a nice art collection where you can see couple of Rembrandt jobs… silver, jewellery, guns etc, the upper floor the rooms are so beautiful like the chapel, the king throne room, the conference room. Highly recommend to visit this place . There is a coffee area and restaurant if you are hungry, cloakroom is available. Toilets are available on the ground floor. Tickets cost £15 you can pay with card and cash. All is written in polish people don’t speak English.

    Poland´s tallest building - an incredible building, in a complex which also houses a congress hall, theatre, cinema.

    The viewing terrace is on the 30th floor, with 360 views of the city. Tickets can be bought online for about €6 each, or from the ticket booth at the bottom of the lifts.

    Within walking distance from Old Town and well worth the effort to see the realistic style of the monument dedicated to Warsaw Uprising which took place in 1944. Even more impressive when up close as you realize its size and detail that went into making this beautiful tribute.

    Impressive, but as its situated in the old town prepare yourself for lots and lots of tourists! You head into the courtyard, and can purchase a ticket from the admissions desk, before heading over to the entrance and down a staircase to the cloakroom and collect the audio guide. You are recommended to take off bags and coats in the cloakroom, as there are no outside areas to the tour. From here there are signposts to direct you the correct way for the royal tour round the palace.

    You follow the pathing, logically from room to room, with the audio guide explaining key features such as ornate furniture, artwork and historical context as you go through. Each room is incredibly ornate, but not entirely original due to the extensive damage caused from the Second World War, but has been recreated as accurately as is possible and that certainly fooled me! The throne room and banqueting hall stick out in my memory for sheer grandeur. It took about 1 and a half hours to walk round the rooms with the audio-guide.

    It is worth noting, you are kept at least a meter away from most objects in each room for good reason, so you'll be needing to zoom your camera if you are looking to get up close. Attempt it yourself and a member of staff situated in each room will tell you otherwise! I made do with wide angle view on my phone as with just so much capture the wide angle lens could do this best, particularly the ceiling paintings!

    It is worth visiting this attraction, despite the crowds. I would suggest visiting later in the day if the crowds bother you. Admission isn't cheap either but if you want to visit a royal palace, and are unable to visit Kings Jan 3rds Palace then this is the more convenient option. I would also say as a comparison between the 2, this is the smaller palace but comes looking a lot more 'polished'.

    You can pass by this monument, as part of a beautiful walk through the gardens. There is a claim that this monument is the best-known Polish sculpture in the world.

    The bronze monument depicts the composer sitting under a weeping willow. Above Chopin’s head they take the form of a hand palm. The whole composition reminds of a monumental harp.

    In 1940, the monument was destroyed by the Nazis. It was broken into pieces and sent to foundries to be melted down. The reconstructed monument was unveiled in 1958.

    This beautiful monument is dedicated to the unknown soldiers who gave their lives for Poland. Two soldiers stand guard near and protect the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier with the eternal flame. There are tablets on the walls with names and dates of significant battles in Polish history. You can witness the changing of the guard as it happens every hour as they start from their barracks and marching towards the tomb which happens at day and night. At night-time they follow a green illuminated line across the Pilsudski square.

    Great place with industrial ambience. A lot of food choices, the variety is great! Only thing is the drinks are overpriced, a beer was way higher than city-average.

    Beautiful Monument to the heroes who died during the Ghetto Uprising in 1943 which in front of POLIN Museum main entrance formerly a part of Warsaw Ghetto at the spot where the first armed clash of the uprising took place. There are two sides of the monument which definitely makes a statement of the tragedies what took place here.

    We have a family there so visit often but it is a museum. Full of sculpture and important Polish personalities. Visiting when it is full of candles on All Souls’ Day is magical. If you like cemeteries, and I do, well worth a visit.
