“Too crowded”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

It's a nice place, but it is too crowded. One day it was full of people waving polish flags, the next it was a Jesus-concert and the third it was a opera of some kind. Not my cup of tea...

“An ordinary square.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

There's actually nothing much to see in the square itself (other than the column), but the castle is nearby and some eateries are also there.
The square is lovely in the evening (that is, until drunk local teens start pouring in).

“A great place to people watch.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

It's hard to believe how many locals come here. Either to sit at the base of the statue or stand around the square and talk, or just passing thru on the way to the Old Town Square.

If you like to people watch, this is a great place to do it.
