  • Invariant place for meetings in Warsaw, in any weather. Everyone will find something to your taste. Winter is beautiful illuminations, summer are water fountains in the hot summer days.

  • Wide square. Retains numerous old buildings (always after the war, obviously) Ideal for walking, observe its architecture. It is the Royal Castle and since it can be a good panoramic view of the city.

  • Place top of the Krakowskie Przedmieście, if we go from the new World. The square is not a crowded Metro and bars, but there is always a lot of people. In the summer you can meet many frików who your playing entertaining time tourists Are often held different types of Assembly and picketing. Very likely that if you choose, is a hit in either one. From the square head to the old town. A place of historical importance. See not only a story about the history of the Royal Palace, but also the same column of Sigismund, which stands in a central location.
