This city square is of course not so popular as Old Town. However it is really worth to see it.
In World War II, during the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, the square was completely destroyed and 80% of houses were completely demolished, including the church. After the war, the square was reconstructed in the 18th-century style and reconstruction lasted until 1955.

While Old Town is an absolute must see when in Warsaw New Town, which is just a short stroll away, lacks much character and the main square is almost devoid of people and activity. There are some interesting shops in the area but that's about it.

We overlooked this square whilst having a coffee and found the whole place more peaceful and less busy than the square in the old town. The new part of the town is pretty too with plenty of photo opportunities to be had. Worth a visit to see the church and the statue of the bears.

Unlike rynek starego miasta this square is not big and noisy with tourists sitting outside eating and drinking or shopping for souvenirs. It is a much more modest plaza with an old water pump and a statue of a bear in one corner. Places to sit and people-watch and also some eateries on the margin. Just not the same intensity as the above-mentioned.

Old town is technically the end or beginning of old town. Unlike Old town, New town is more on the quiet side whilst Old town is more bustling and touristy.
New town is an extension of Old town but with newer model buildings. Lots of stores and restaurants are around and still carries a nice laid back vibe.

Unlike the Old Town bustling area of touristic attractions , the New Town is very quiet , calm and not crowded . Yet it gives you a relaxing peace of mind , and many Photo Ops .
We have visited the square on a nice weather early afternoon . On one side the beautiful Roman Catholic church of St. Casimir (Kazimierz) , on the other side the statues of the Bears watching the church ,on another side a couple of restaurants/cafes , and in the middle of the cobbled square a nice drinking fountain . There's even a small Carrefour express supermarket to buy a small bottle of wine/beer and enjoy yourselves calmly .

There are two parts of the Old City in Warsaw. The Old Town and the New Town, which is also old :)

The buildings around the market square of the New Town are not completely the same as they were before ww2.

But there's a 17th century church built by queen Mary, a French wife of John III Sobieski. The architect was named Tylman von Gameren and was Dutch, but obtained Polish nobility.

Behind the market square of the New Town you can see a small gothic church. That's the oldest church in Warsaw actually.

A nice place to take a stroll among nice streets, squares, churches and restaurants. All reconstructed after the War but nice and simple

There are some cobbles here but the area is still quite walkable. Some churches are in the area but the architecture not as elegant as Old Town. Doesn't seem to be as vibrant at night but it might be worth a visit during the day. This part of the city is small enough that you can incorporate a trip to New Town into your walking tours of Warsaw.

I liked the New Town just as much as the Old Town Square. It is bustling with people, has more restaurant choices, better shops and just seems less touristy than the Old. Not to be missed.
