Great atmosphere, day or night. Look out for saxophinist playing at the floodlights to the castle giving great photos of him and his shadow. Be sure to give him some monetary recognition.

Wonderfully reconstructed after WW2. So many buildings and monuments were destroyed by the bl**** Nazis, that they have done a wonderful job in reconstructing it and painting it again in all the beautiful pastel colours. The main features are Sigismund's Column and The Royal Castle. We did the Free Walking Tours of Warsaw, which I also thoroughly recommend and nearly... More

Instead of going to the public NY display and live music event in the New Town we hung out here. Good atmosphere with the locals setting off lots of fireworks near the Christmas tree. Also views across the river and firework displays from there.

Beautiful reconstructed square which was built after the Second World War. It's so hard to believe with its chocolate box facades and pastel hews of pinks yellows and oranges. It's worth climbing the tower 5 Pl. each and oxygen starved stairs which gasping bring you out to overlook Warsaw. Enjoy Warsaw it's just beautiful x

I really like the Old Town in Warsaw and this square for me is the jewel in the crown. Partially reconstructed after its destruction in II WW it stands proud of its past and in a hot summer day there are few places better to be
