Warsaw Things to Do: 1,447 reviews and 3,028 photos


Plac Zamkowy (English: Castle Square) is the square in front of the Royal Castle in Warsaw, Poland. The square is a visitor's first view of the reconstructed Old Town (Polish: Stare Miasto). It is an impressive sight, dominated by Zygmunt's Column, which towers above the beautiful Old Town houses. The square is now a hub for both tourists and locals, who gather to watch the street entertainers, participate in rallies, watch concerts and even engage in breakdancing. Former US President Clinton gave a speech welcoming Poland to NATO at the square in 1997.
