Whether you are just passing through or wanting to linger a great place to meet, eat or drink. We saw a re-enactment taking place and enjoyed a bar and lovely restaurant off the side of the square.

When i came Warsaw, we visited the Old Town in the first week and right after that we came to Castle Square. You can see huge Warsaw from here, i think it's a good option for a tourist.

This is a great place to visit, walk around and people watch. So historic and the buildings are beautiful. Lots of people last weekend as there was a festival and the roads were closed off. This week much quieter and really beautiful.

Walked through this square to reach the Old Town Square. There was a live TV broadcast going on during our visit, so as a result we didn't see it fully, but what we did see was great. Fabulous meeting up place !

Beautiful way to start your Warsaw trip is at this square. An Unesco World Heritage site for you take in all its awe. Grab a beer on one of its terraces, and see all the people bewondered by the beauty of this place.
