Old Town Market Place Reviews & Ratings
all of Warsaw was completely reconstructed after world war II. But you'd never know it, looking at the old Town square. It is a faithful reproduction of what used to be here, and as far as I'm concerned is just as good. Warsaw cause itself the Phoenix of Europe, and I can see why.
Just behind the old town square, this market square is located. It's all surrounded by beautiful historical buildings and it's very photographic in all directions. There are numerous cafes and bars around to have some Polish taste.
Little pretty square, with many options to seat for a drink and rest your feet. Be aware of the birds, because they are not ashame of stealing your bread crumbs. It's interesting to go and seat there once you know a bit more about its history
It has such a nice ambiance in all seasons. In the spring and summer time the square is full of restaurants which is making it so cheerful and live whereas there's an ice skating area in the winter time as well as a Christmas Market if you go around Christmas time. Having a beer sitting in one of the restaurants in the summer time has a different taste while drinking a nice hot wine in the winter time is another taste. Both are full of fun. The most important thing is that you see the resistance of Polish nation looking at the colorful buildings which've been rebuilt from their ashes.
Beautiful place, I actually loved all of Warsaw old city center, it was lovely and it's very hard to imagine that once it was completely devastated and ruined. It stands now as proof that with strength and determination we can always rise again.
