Walking the streets of the Old Town allows you to rest from the bustle of central city life. Enigmatic alleys and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history. In summer, the Old Town Square becomes a stage for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries.

It was given by Stalin as a ‘gift from the Soviet Union to Polish nation’, and it is the youngest monument in Warsaw, as it is barely 50 years old.
