The walls were heavily damaged in WWII and rebuilt after the war. They make for a nice entrance to the old town but don't compare to the few European cities that still have a complete medieval wall. The reconstructions is pretty obvious compared to other walled cities. It doesn't cost anything to see them or take a nice photo so you should go see them.

Old city walls refurbished and rebuilt as virtually everything was destroyed during Rising '44 by the Nazis. Pleasant to see while walking through the Old Town area. Local administration has done a nice job restoring the Old Town area to its former glory and working to make it a good attraction for tourists.

It worth a visit and a walking along the walls guarding the Old City. The walls are more impressive by their historical meaning than the present appearance. Anyway, you cannot visit Warsaw without seeing Barbican.

I walked through here every day for a week. Whilst it is totally rebuilt and is had the size of Krakow's Barbakan it is none the less quaint and worth of a quick tour.

Remains of medieval fortifications in defense of the original center of Warsaw, have recently been rebuilt and, although fake, have a pleasant walk close to the historic center, which runs beside a garden maintained very well.

In the evening the doors are illuminated with funny plays of colored light. @gargio76

The Barbican itself is quite basic. Just a well protected entry between the old town and the new Town. BUT... it is worth knowing that prices drop as soon as you leave the Old Town.
We walked out of the Old town into the "New Town" and found a coffee shop just about 80 metres down the road on the RH side.
Her we enjoyed several coffees, teas, wines and beers plus cheese rolls and superb cakes and apple pies.
I should mention that this was over two separate visits!! Prices were very low with house wine (very good) at 6 Zloty (£1.25 ) a glass. Enjoy.............

Very pretty area. Lots of restaurants/bars and walk a little further there are plenty more. Small tourist shops and local artists selling there pieces. Can’t miss this area because of the castle walls.

The Red bricked barbican is a beautiful thing to see in Warsaw. You can stroll along it on an easy path above the many local artisans who display their crafts here.
Loads and loads of eateries nearby and the place has a real buzz. A few minutes walk from the market square in the heart of the old town. Its surrounded by cobbled pedestrianised streets and the area oozes history and character. Definitely worth a visit.

The Barbican is the entrance to the old town square and is very nice to see. Of course, like most of Warsaw it was rebuilt after the war, but still a very nice spot to see. Lots of artwork displayed on the walls and being sold and plenty of spots to grab a coffee and just enjoy.

This is the main attraction of the city. Is not so beautiful as the one in Krakow because this one is new and it's only to simbolize the WWII. Even though you must visit 'cause is the main attraction of a city that has very few things to offer.
