Walk Around Old Town Market Square.
Warsaw’s Old Town is the finest and most picturesque part of the city. The Old Town Square is the oldest and one of the most charming squares in Warsaw. It’s impossible not to fall in love with this place! It was laid out at the turn of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Festivities and markets were organized here, but convicts were also executed.
The Old Town Market square, although more than seven centuries old, has hardly changed. The Old Town dates back to the 13th century where it used to be the center of Warsaw’s public life. The buildings around it were wooden at the time, but what we can see nowadays dates back the 15th century.
Today, the market square offers a wide range of good restaurants and cocktail bars as well as street art and souvenirs. Once on the market square, you can also visit the Literature Museum and the Historical Museum of Warsaw.
Warsaw’s Old Town is the jewel in the Polish capital’s crown. It delights visitors with its colorful tenement houses and the unique atmosphere of its narrow streets. It is no wonder that it has been entered on the UNESCO World Heritage list!
Be sure to visit the Royal Castle. It was there that the Constitution of 3rd May was passed — the first in Europe and the second in the world. In the former home of Polish rulers, you will see the royal apartments, paintings by Rembrandt and canvases by Bernardo Bellotto, also known as Canaletto.
On Castle Square stands the column of King Sigismund III Vasa, who in the 16th century moved the capital of Poland from Krakow to Warsaw.
The oldest and the highest secular monument of the capital is an excellent landmark where locals in Warsaw often arrange to meet.
In the middle of the square stands a statue of the Warsaw Mermaid, the emblem and guardian of the city.
In the summer, the Old Town is full of café gardens and becomes a stage for cultural festivals. In winter, the Old Town and the Royal Route sparkle with beautiful illuminations.
