"Barbican" Barbican Tip by acemj

Barbican, Warsaw: 39 reviews and 80 photos


The Barbican (Barbakan in Polish) is a large defensive tower that was reconstructed after WWII. When I was in Warsaw, I sort of thought of it as the gateway to the New Town from the Old Town. As you pass through the gate, you'll notice vendors selling wares appealing to tourists along with musicians and the passing crowds. You also may run into two teenagers making out in the windows that are recessed deep into the walls. Funny.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
