New Town (Nowe Miasto) Warsaw Reviews
Beautiful "old" area of Warsaw Sep 18, 2010
The New Town (Nowe Miasto) is, like the Old Town, the oldest district of the city. During World War 2, it was also mostly destroyed.
Unlike the Old Town, the New Town is not as popular. In my opinion the place misses its charm of the small streets, as the streets in the New Town are wider. Still, I found it a pleasant area to walk around in.
The starting point was just outside the Barbakan (former fortified outpost), on Nowomiesjka street. Fromt here I walked onto Freta street.
Like in the Old Town, I found a number of bars and restaurants. They also had terraces outside where some people had a drink. But I also saw shops and antique stores.
Because the place isn't so popular, there weren't many tourists.
The New Town also has a square, called the New Town Market Square. This is, compared to the Old Town market Square, an open square with the St. Kazimierz Church on one end and Freta street on the other.
There are also other churches like the St. Hyacinth's Church. I visited this one, well the intention was there, but there was a wedding inside.
It misses the atmosphere that the Old Town has, but the New Town still offered the opportunity for a nice walk.
