A very pleasant place to walk, shop, drink and eat - with a main square, a main gate and street leading down to the river.

Not only a tourist attraction but also the living room of the people of Olsztyn: many restaurants, bars, and cafes in a pictoresque milieu. The bonus is that there is no perceptible tourist premium in the prices, especially when compared to Warsaw.

Old town of Olsztyn is quite small, only few streets, church and main square. Old buildings are well perserved although some of them need renovations. With numerous pubs, bars and restorants and historical buildings, this could be good place for wandering around.

This mid age old town has its charms, especially around the castle, but ... still expected more variety in different dining places. Somehow we did not like that we had to search for long time a place WITH local cuisine, as asian and american style...More
