"New Town Square" New Town Tip by acemj

New Town, Warsaw: 31 reviews and 59 photos

Leaving Old Town square, it's just a short walk through the Barbican and up Ul Freta to the New Town Square, a much quieter and open space. There are some nice homes around the square and some cafes along Ul Freta itself. The New Town was founded in the late 14th century, so it's actually not that much newer than the Old Town. The New Town was inhabited historically by those of slightly lower social standing than those living in the Old Town and was never surrounded by fortifying walls. The Baroque Church at the far end of the square is the Church of the Nuns of the Holy Sacrament which is the desing of architect Tylman van Gameren.
