  • Picturesque square adjacent to the Royal Castle. Zygmunt's Column is the focal point. Colorful buildings contain shops and restaurants. The Heart of Warsaw.  more »
  • A must see...take the horse and buggy ride through the city. The driver explained the history and culture of the Polish people; and a relaxed way to get around.  more »
  • This is a large area to view the palace and the statue. It is beautiful and you can sit and have a meal and a drink and enjoy the ambience.  more »

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
