It is incredible to stroll in this area and to think back what transpired in the war. This is a beautiful place that at the same time, if you stop and think about it, has a reverential feel to it as well. Definitely worth the time to walk around and visit the many shops in the area.

Great meeting point or landmark for finding each other. Some of the free tour companies start here. Coffee shops, restaurants and souvenirs aren't far from this point.

Essential part of any trip to Warsaw, lots to see with a great selection of bars and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the escalators with a small selection of photos showing the reconstruction of Warsaw after the war. Be sure to check it out.

I would strongly recommend visiting the Uprising Museum to learn incredible tales from Poland's history, and see the... More

The old city is a nice place to walk around. The city put a lot of effort to reconstruct the city that they lost. This is the meeting point for the free walking tours too.

Nothing really stands out apart from the bugler who was in a window. Buildings were ornate old world sytle but i expected that as its in the "Old Town"

One of the most overcrowded places in Warsaw, and there is a reason for that. It has a special aura !

The square was always bustling with people, even in the cold winter. In the evening there was a very festive feel to it.
