A very nice old town with picturesque houses with colourful facades which are triangular at the top. This part of town abounds in cafes selling good coffee and delicious cakes. There are also some nice shops.

We went there with our kids. In the main square there were a concert and we sat and listen for some time. You can find a lot of cafe, restaurants and shops and have fun. We recommend a walk.

Not only a tourist attraction but also the living room of the people of Olsztyn: many restaurants, bars, and cafes in a pictoresque milieu. The bonus is that there is no perceptible tourist premium in the prices, especially when compared to Warsaw.
