This place -- when weather is good -- is brimming with activity... If you are in Warszawa and you are in a mood for contact with other people and when it is sunny and nice... go there ;-)

If you think that almost everything around you there was rebuilt after the 2nd World War you are less impressed by the history. Yet it reflects the winning spirit and vivacity of the Poles! All sorts of street artists operate in this busy square as...More

We were fortunate enough to stay in this square, in the Castle Inn. The view of this square is the image that will stay with me for this city break.

We were there on Sunday evening, spending hours walking up and down the old town. Live performances from church, street musicians, living statues; stalls for finger food and souvenirs easily catch your attention. Colorful building and architecture the touristy spots for photos taking. More impressive...More
