A real nice "postcard" scenario of Warsaw. Definitely a must see. The Castle itself is worth a visit. The narrow streets in the area are very nice (although crowded in Summer).

The castle square is very pretty in the architectural sense but very dull and boring for tourists. It's mainly all restaurants and small shops and with nothing much else going on there. There is no sense of a typical hustle and bustle of many other...More

Not to be missed, full of people, cafes, tourists but it is so large that it doesn’t feel claustrophobic. The houses around te square are colourful and you get some great views of the new part of town.

For most people this will be the starting point of their exploration of the Old Town, and it's a great way to get a feel for the place, with architecture to admire, history aplenty and always something happening, with lots of street art and performances....More

An excellent walking tour. Take your time to observe the colourful architecture and appreciate the effort involved in the total reconstruction of this old town following WW2.
