Rynek Starego Miasta, Warsaw

4.5
#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.

  • A small but adequate Christmas market with lovely Christmas tree and Mulled wine. Short walk from our hotel and made the holidays very festive!  more »
  • This Market Place is the center of the Old Town. It was systematically blown up by the German Army after the Warsaw Uprising. After the war, it was restored to look as it did in the 17th century...  more »

  • Just behind the old town square, this market square is located. It's all surrounded by beautiful historical buildings and it's very photographic in all directions. There are numerous cafes and bars around to have some Polish taste.
  • Little pretty square, with many options to seat for a drink and rest your feet. Be aware of the birds, because they are not ashame of stealing your bread crumbs. It's interesting to go and seat there once you know a bit more about its history
