With its cobbled streets and colourful houses, the Old Town marks the focal point of Warsaw. At the centre of this UNESCO-protected site lies the town square, Rynek Starego Miasta, which boasts a lively and charming atmosphere. The Old Town is also home to a number of beautiful churches and monuments, excellent coffee shops and restaurants. The grand St. John's Cathedral is perhaps the architectural highlight here.
Formerly home to Poland's kings, the Royal Castle, or Zamek Królewski, is an impressive landmark, situated only a short walk from the Old Town. Discover the King's lavish apartment or pay a visit to the galleries exhibiting an impressive display of paintings, coins and medals.
One of the most beautiful green spots of Warsaw. Take a stroll around its dazzling lakes or visit the stunning Neoclassical Palace on the Water (Palac Lazienkowski). The park is also home to the Chopin Monument, celebrating the famous Polish composer, and a range of smaller castles.
The Muzeum Fryderyka Chopina provides visitors with a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse at the life and works of one of Europe's most famous composers. Among the displays are some of Chopin's letters and sheet music, as well as his last piano.
