    Warsaw Old Town

    Warsaw’s Old Town is the jewel in the Polish capital’s crown. It is no wonder that it has been entered on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

     

    Warsaw Old Town is the oldest part of Warsaw. Old Town is one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Warsaw. Although it has been around for over seven centuries, its form has hardly changed. 

     

    In the middle of the square, there is a statue of the Warsaw Mermaid, which has become the emblem and protector of the city. If you are interested in the history of the city, visit the Museum of Warsaw or follow the Old Town Cellars Route (you will find more information about these places in the next articles). Find also some time to see the barbican and the bell on Kanonia Street.

     

    Old Town Market Place is the heart of the area. There are many restaurants, cafés, and shops. It is surrounded by medieval architecture. 

     

    In 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.

     

    According to the warsawtour.pl website, “Warsaw Old Town is the jewel in the Polish capital’s crown. It is no wonder that it has been entered on the UNESCO World Heritage list”. On September 2, 1980, the Old Town in Warsaw was placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Warsaw Old Town was listed as an example of almost complete reconstruction.
