Historic old town center & Ogrod Saski : Warsaw

The historic old town in Warsaw is in the image of what the old town used to look like, to give visitors the feel of former glory, but because of the mass destruction during world war II, much of of the area is a reconstruction. It is a remarkably well done reconstruction, it looks authentic, Polish style architecture, build on the foundations of the little that remained after the war. This is why it is now a UNESCO heritage site as an example of what reconstruction should look like. Lots to see and do in the old center, aside from just strolling slowly and enjoying the vibe, with the river nearby, observation towers, some parks, and lots of hippy cool restaurants and cafes. I had a walk through Warsaw a number of times in different times of the day, and was always a treat discovering something new.

If you’re visiting Warsaw, you’ll end up in this area at some point, as you should. This is the heart of old Warsaw, and the reconstruction is so well done it will take you back in time to give you a glimpse of the former pre-war Polish glory.
