  • A large square, rebuilt to look like pre World War II Warsaw. Lacking soul and life, yet bustling with tourists and beggars with open cups. Walk through, glance around and continue on your journey...  more »
  • The square itself is beautiful, but do take time to visit the castle, it is amazing how they were able to build it and incorporate every small piece of stone or decoration that has survived.  more »
