Trip Planner: Europe / Poland / Central Poland / Mazovia Province / Warsaw / Warsaw Barbican (Barbakan Warszawski)
Warsaw Barbican (Barbakan Warszawski) is the oldest part of the city's 16th-century fortifications. The round construction, reinforced with four defensive towers, is a popular spot for street performers and art sellers. To get more into the mood of the Middle Ages, check out the small museum, where you can observe the advances in military practices from medieval times until today. The red-brick defensive tower only once took part in the defense of Warsaw, when the Swedes invaded the city in the 17th century. It was completely destroyed during World War II, then reconstructed in 1954 on the basis of 17th-century engravings.

This Barbican castle takes you to a completely different period. The musical ambience has been created by talented local instrumental performers though their music content is contemporary modern. It seems a fusion of 2 different ages.
Great milk bar. No speaking English. Expect poor service = authentic experience. Good place for poor people eats.
