Owner description: Located in Old Town, this picturesque open plaza was built in 1821 and features the King Zygmunt III column in its center.

It is a reconstruction, since almost everything was destroyed during the II world war. Said that, is a very well done work and looks quite idyllic.

Look around and don't forget to look up to see the most amazing column of Zygmunt. There are many bras and restaurants on the street leading from Castle Square

You cannot come to Warsaw and not explore the historic Old Town, including the picturesque Castle Square. Although it looks as though it has been there for centuries, it was virtually completely razed to the ground during WWII and subsequently, sympathetically reconstructed. Bordered by the Royal Castle and neighbouring Old Town Square with King Sigismund's column in the middle, there are plenty of restaurants and coffee shops around so you can linger for a while.

For the best view of the square climb the tower of St Anne's church.

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....
