Old Town and Barbican
This part of Warsaw is number one in tourist guides and the oldest district of the city. It consists of the Royal Castle, historic churches and 17th and 18th century colorful houses. The Old Town is surrounded by a medieval defensive wall of red brick. In the summer, the Old and New Town Squares become stages for musical and theatrical performances and open-air galleries. Wander off the main streets and try to get lost to find narrow passages to the yards of tenement houses, hidden gardens or stairs leading nowhere.
The summer residence of Polish kings is also a popular destination among tourists visiting Warsaw, but not everyone is aware of how much they have to offer. In addition to walking towards the amphitheater, feeding carp on the bridge next to the Palace on the Island, in the season you can listen to Chopin concerts free of charge, practice yoga on the grass, or take a walk through the recently restored Chinese Garden.
