Once you're in Old Town everything is quite close. Sit at a café and enjoy the views while you rest.

Worth a wander around this old square, lovely old buildings to marvel. Still decked out with fairy lights and wooden huts selling various gifts and Polish delicacies, mulled wine was excellent!

When we visited Warsaw it was freezing, but we still had a great time. Christmas decorations were still up in early February which was stunning. Plenty to see and do. Lots of cafes,bars and restaurants.

This square is walking distance from the Royal Castle. This is the heart of old town Warsaw. The architectural of those buildings within the square does shows it s old age.
