|The streets of Warsaw, Poland|
I love beautiful old cities and Warsaw is definitely one of them! I fell in love with the older part of the city or the ´old town´ with it´s cobbled streets and eye-catching buildings. It is situated between Brzeze Gdanskie Street, Grodzka, Mostowa and Powale Street. Most of the major attractions are at the Market Square or Rynek Starego Miasta. As we were walking to the old town I immediately noticed how clean this city was. Not a single piece of paper was lying around.

Andrey and I spent many hours wandering the streets and taking photos. I found the architecture very interesting. Most of the city was destroyed during World War II and had been restored to their original state – from pictures!
People love to gather in the Old Town Market and here you can find many traditional Polish restaurants, cafes and shops. We bought delicious shwarmas that didn´t cost us an arm and a leg. I loved the vibe in the market. Many artists were performing or displaying their goods in the market square. There are many shops where you can browse for Lemax villages and decorations.
The architecture is amazing and places to see include the City Walls,The Barbican and St. John’s Cathedral. In fact there are so many places to see that I could easily spend a week in Warsaw!
This part of town is mostly closed off for traffic and you can enjoy walks and picnics. We even saw a bicycles race there one evening.
