Scenes From The Old Town Of Warsaw

If we should use just one word to describe the Old Town of Warsaw that word is: colorful. Walking on the narrow cobblestone streets felt like we were in an old story book and the antique stores, street artists, restaurants and cute cafés fitted in perfectly. Warsaw’s Old Town is one of our favorites in Europe!

However intact and amazing the Old Town looks today, the truth it that about 85% of it was completely destroyed by the German Army during the Second World War. But the Polish people have rebuilt their capital again and the result is very impressive! Warsaw was the highlight of our second trip to Poland – mainly because of its colorful Old Town and majestic palaces. Join us for a walk and we show you why:

  1. Love your photos! I definitely need to go to some of those places, they all look so beautiful. I love how diverse and modern Warsaw is, I think that it is impossible to get bored there. I love visiting my Polish friends in Warsaw, especially that there are some really great spots to hang out. Our favorite one is a bar in downtown, vary close to the Old Town, called Bubbles. They serve some amazing drinks (mostly champagne and wines, but not only) as well as delicious food. It is perfect for celebrating a special occasion but also for a casual afternoon 🙂

    1. Thanks Julie. Yeah, Warsaw really exceeded our expectations! We hope to visit it again and explore even more of Poland, too.
