Castle Square Zygmunt's Column
The Old Town history goes back to the late 13th . Today's look is due to complete reconstruction (1949 – 1963) after it was destroyed during World War 2. It is the oldest quarter of Warsaw and has a preserved medieval street plan.


In 1980 the Old Town was listed by UNESCO as World Heritage and an example of a faithful reconstruction with authentic details preserved. The pride of Old Town is the Old Town Square with colourful town houses. Its most important building now is the Royal Castle. Today the Old Town pulsates with life until late evening. There are lots of little streets here with good restaurants, cafes and souvenir shops.
