Warsaw Old Town

Warsaw Old Town – Warsaw Tour GuideWarsaw Old Town Tour Guide

Welcome to the historic center and the oldest part of the city – The Old Town in Warsaw – capital of Poland. Founded in the 13th century as a princely stronghold and a walled settlement. During the World War II, 90% of buildings were destroyed. Thanks to its perfect and precise reconstruction, in 1980 it was included on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.

Every tourist will find something for themselves here. The sightseeing tour to Warsaw creates an atmosphere of relaxation and allows you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the big city. This includes a walk between stately old churches, picturesque tenement houses, historical monuments, atmospheric alleys, mysterious streets, green squares and cozy cafes.

On the other hand, tourists from all over the world, crowds of young people, children running around, street musicians, artists exhibiting their works, fashionable galleries, restaurants, colorful garden umbrellas, and in the summer season a place for outdoor music and theater performances will bring a unique excitement about the city rush. In winter, the Old Town Square turns into a large ice rink. This Old Town, in turn, is teeming with its own, unique life.
