Warsaw’s Old Town is the finest and most picturesque part of the city. It was built during the 12th to 13th century and is surrounded by 14th century fortification walls. It played a major role in Poland’s history and cultural life since the beginning of its existence, and continues to do so even today. Visit Old Town to see the most beautiful houses and palaces in the city, dine at the market square, or check out the most inspiring museums Warsaw has to offer.
The Old Town Market Square dates back to the 13th century where it used to be the centre of Warsaw’s public life, hosting political speeches and executions. 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.
