Old Town, Warsaw

(4.6/5 based on 7,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Add Old Town and other attractions to your Warsaw trip itinerary using our Warsaw vacation route planner.

  • Impressive when you know that the entire city was destroyed in 1945 and that old town has entirely rebuilt the same thereafter. However, this district is small enough and it out soon

  • Fantastic when the old town is built. A good walking in the day than in the evening. At the end of November, there was still no Christmas markets open.

  • Narrow streets and tall buildings make the reconstructed old town feel authentic. Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from.  more »
