“Nice venue walking around in warsaw”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

You pass this place when you visit the old town. The whole place is quite impressive, knowing that all has been rebuild 65 years ago. It is good to walk around and to sit down now and then to think what has happened her 75 years ago. Impressive to see all the pictures on how it was after the war and how it has been rebuild.

“For a beautiful evening...”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

It is identical to what you have imagined seeing the photos… in fact much brighter and beautiful to look at.
It’s a very popular place for tourist and locals. You can easily spend over 2 hours here relaxing sipping coffee or enjoying Pizza/ Ice cream and Waffle.

Other ways to wild time here is watching people sketching, street shows and lot more…. Evenings would be the best time to visit.

“Great people watching”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Old Town is beautiful and walking through it is one of the best parts. It is very touristy, but worth it. Don't miss the sad Panda who sits in Castle Square most days. Just one of the quirky things about Warsaw.

“Part of Old Town”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It is located in Old Town, so while your there walk through it and take it in. If walking isn't your thing think twice about going to this area just for Castle Square.

“Symbol of Warsaw”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

It took long time to rebuild the Royal Castle on this square. Again the Germans at the end of the WW II leveled this gem. They also destroyed the column in front which is now a land mark of this city. The view of the ramparts, of the castle , the Krakowskie Przedmiescie street and the bridge across the river is unique
