  • The Castle as a square and buildings were entirely rebuilt after Warsaw was razed to the ground by the Germans. I visited there.

  • We really loved this part of town as it offered a unique combination of local culture, beautiful views of the city, great historical landmarks, and good restaurants and shops. What else do you need?! 
  • As usual on the Castle Square, something happens. An interesting place to explore and walk, or rest in the surrounding cafes.
