Create an itinerary including Old Town
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. See Old Town and all Warsaw has to offer by arranging your trip with our Warsaw route planner.

  • What a joy this place to visit on Sunday. We had great time there. Visited also Royal Castle and had lunch outside. Very nice.

  • I went here twice to look around and it's really lovely and has nice ambiance. A must go place in Warsaw to have a look and take some photos. The Royal Castle is worth a look there too.

  • Stunningly beautiful, shockingly clean and with far fewer tourist traps than many historic districts. It is such a pleasure to wander the streets. The rebuilding is a lesson for all. Preserve...
