Rynek Starego Miasta, Warsaw

4.4
#1 of 231 in Shopping in Poland
Established in the late 13th century around the time the city itself was founded, Rynek Starego Miasta served as the commercial and cultural heart of Warsaw for several centuries. The large public space hosted regular fairs and occasional executions. One of the city's great survivors, the square was bombed in 1939 and destroyed in 1944 after the Warsaw Uprising. The houses surrounding the square, painstakingly restored in the years following World War II, blend Renaissance and Baroque architectural styles. The square also features the city's main historical museum and is a natural starting or ending point for your tour of the city.

  • Warsaw's "Old Town square is nice, but it does not compare to Prague. There are nice houses, and the whole square is full of restaurant gardens from spring to autumn. But the prices are quite high. At the time of our visit (beginning of May), when the majority of the gardens were relatively cold, although some of them have heating (gas lamps).

  • The large square with a lot of cafes and restaurants is very similar to Lviv Square. Many pigeons and people.
