If you there....and look around, you see amazing castle, buildings, huge column of Zygmunt....lot of tourists and restaurants. Very busy place.....but in 1944 that place was completely destroyed by Germany Nazi as a punishment of Warsaw uprising....
90% of Warsaw was destroyed to street level.....But 74 years later you do not see any signs of that.....everything rebuilt and it is huge attraction.
What a history lesson for us, what a Nation (Polish) stand up, and started to rebuilt that, to show what was/is important for them.....never forget their history, and price they paid during WWII.....
This is the only ONE NATION in whole Europe, which never colabotate with accupants....had own government in London, and keep fighting Germans until 1945......Warsaw uprising back in summer 1944.....was only one like this in whole Europe, that underground army picked up fight with Nazis, and if Soviet Army stationed by other side of Vistula river rich out and help.....Warsaw will not be destroyed as much, and not that many young Polish patriots would be alive......But Stalin said NO, and watched like this Tragic City was bleed to death.....
Germans in punishment for uprising killed around 100,000 ordinary people, elders, women, kids and destroyed rest of the city....
Now I walk around that place.....think about those brave youngsters....who died in the name of FREEDOM.....
What an irony.....
Soviet Army took time to got rid of Germans in January 1945.....and stayed in till 1989....

The Square is really just an entrance to the Old Town and to the Royal Castle - which is a must see. In the summer you can hire a horse drawn carriage from here to visit the Old Town.

Do visit this place but in the afternoon. Climb the tower to watch the town from the top. And do not miss this scenary. They will charge you 2Euros for it and its nothing for the view you get.

There is a fair right there in the square where you can get Souvenirs. But I preferred going to Souvenir Plaza which is 50m distance from there before you enter the Old Town market center.

Happy climbing on top of Warsaw!
