Old Town, Warsaw

4.3
Take in Old Town, the oldest part of the city, which testifies to its rise from the ashes of war. Considered one of the country's main architectural treasures, this central district is also a World Heritage Site. The area was meticulously rebuilt after the massive destruction of World War II. During the reconstruction, workers sifted through rubble to save decorative elements and bricks from historic buildings, reusing the pieces in their original places whenever possible. A great place to start your tour of Warsaw, the central square features cafes, shops, and restaurants. Wander the cobblestone streets and admire the medieval architecture.

  • The city of Warsaw has a small and charming old town which will delight the tourists. Delve into it (both day and night), through its streets and walk along the outer wall that surrounds it, are top cultural experiences. In the old town you can find the two main monuments of the city:-St. John's Cathedral - the marketplace both monuments well worth a visit, even though special mention required from the market square, all a work of art. Fabulous and simple as it is, stands out above all by the buildings of colors that make up the square. For all this, even just for visiting and stroll through this historic, well deserves Warsaw a trip.

  • Stop quite distinctive, because it satisfies the features-support vehicles oprowadzające after famous and worth visiting places in the capital. Outdoor, absolutely not complaining about loneliness. The direct vicinity with the column of Sigismund.
