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.

  • Lovely square, lots of shopping and dining areas. We ate Pierogis at a restaurant here, toured the castle and watched some singers and dancers in traditional dress. Nice way to spend the day. 
  • In the summer it is nice to stroll the streets with typical charm has been preserved. Although the neighborhood are small the charm of the place is significant. In winter the fresh wind that rushes into the streets, you probably surrender and go home in a café.

  • The old town is a must when visiting Warsaw, it dates from the 12-13th century and was largely destroyed during the second world war. Everything was rebuilt to remind the beauty and the charm of the place, such as the royal castle. It's nice to stroll through the pedestrian streets, the day as overnight, as the market square, there is in the vicinity of the museums that can teach us more about the history of the country, not to mention restaurants and whatever else we can imagine in the tourist places!
