As the most beautiful and colourful part of the city, Warsaw’s Old Town is a historical marvel in itself. As you leisurely explore the district you will discover quirky houses, cobblestone streets and beautiful plazas. At the heart of the Old Town District you will find the Old Town Market Place, a place which resembles Warsaw’s cultural background.

It is now packed with delicious traditional Polish restaurants, quaint and open-air cafes and talented portrait painters. The unique beauty of the area makes it a treasure of the city.

The Capital Reconstruction Bureau re-built this part of Warsaw after the devastation the war brought, using old sketches of what the city looked like pre-devastation. It is an absolutely stunning city today, one which is rich in culture and fascinating history. The following link is well worth bookmarking, just before tour, for a list of proper pubs in the old town.
