Old Town, Warsaw

4.6
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.
