“Nice but touristy”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

I understand that most of the buildings in the old town were bombed out by the nazis and that what you see is the product of extraordinary rebuilding.

That much is amazing. But there is a lot of the old town that is just too touristy, with cheap souvenir shops and cheap restaurants. We walked over there for dinner, but then went back to our hotel, where we had a great meal.

I don't think this attraction is worth much effort.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The Rynek is gorgeous. From the cobbled stone ground to the column in the middle, everywhere seems to have the little bit of beauty attached to it. There are usually a lot of performers to keep you entertained and lots of restaurants and cafes to relax at.
There is a fantastic view from the square all the way over the river towards the stadium, and you can watch the trams and people below travelling off into the distance.

“Best spot of Warsaw”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Without any doubt my favourite spot in Warsaw. All of your walkings in the city will pass through here! Rebuilt in a very accurate and nice way!
