The old town of Olsztyn is lovely for a stroll taking in all the old buildings and their surrounds. There are plenty of restaurants with outdoor seating and all priced very cheap with excellent food too. Market day is a must when visiting.

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.
