Rzeszow Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 56 photos

The travel books tend to say Rzeszow is a place for passing through quickly -- well I don't agree ...

I have to admit I was sort of passing through -- on my way from Krakow to Kosice, Slovakia, but I'd always wanted to visit Rzeszow and not far away Przemysl to see what they were like and I'm really glad I did - I enjoyed my short stay in Rzeszow.

The Rynek is a busy gathering place in the evenings with lots of cafes and bars -- it's a nice square with a monument of Tadeusz Kosciuszko and a 16th century Town Hall.

I enjoyed wandering around the town -- along ul 3 Maja with its attractive Piarist Church and Monastery -- oh, one thing I noticed was that nearly everyone I saw in Rzeszow was eating ice-cream!
-- good idea .....

    Paul, fabulous little page about Rzeszow. We spent one day here last May and really enjoyed the city as much as you did. I found the Monument to the Revolutionary Movement quite impressive.

    Hi Ben, We will probably pass through here in May on the way to the Euromeet. Hotel Polonia sounds interesting :)

    Hello:) The Photo shows example of eclectic architecture from art&life style epoque called in Polska - secesja ( Art Nouveau). It was built in the period of 1906-1908 by architect Jan Peroś. And it is a bank.

    Thanks for helping me to remember our hotel in Rzeszow. Our visit was brief, but the hotel's restaurant had excellent food and service.

    Rzeszow is described in less than one page in my guidebook, but I see it is still worth visiting. Good tips Paul!

    As far as I've seen from your pictures, Rzeszow don't seem a place for passing through quickly at all!
