Historic Centre of Warsaw Reviews
Unesco World Heritage Site Feb 15, 2002
When people think of beautiful cities in Poland, Krakow and Gdansk usually come to mind before Warsaw. Yet the historic centre of Warsaw is really stunning too.
The old town of Warsaw isn't really old though. It was all rebuilt after WWII. If I hadn't know, and hadn't seen the pictures of Warsaw reduced to rubble in the much recommended city museum in the main square, I would never have known. In a way, the rebuilt historic centre is a strong indication that sometimes beauty does win over senseless violence.
One of the things I love to do most when I travel is wandering around at random. Warsaw's old town is good for that, though it's not very large, so you'll always end up at the same place again.
For those who can stand the cold, Warsaw and its historic centre are at its most beautiful in winter, when there's snow.
