Warsaw's Old Town (Stare Miasto) is located in the central part of the city, on the banks of the Vistula River. Many sights are located in this neighborhood, and it is not necessary to spend too many words on the level of preservation of old buildings. Everything seems flawless. In this neighborhood, you will see the Royal Palace, a beautiful monumental red brick building that had to be completely reconstructed after World War II. Sigismund's Column is also located in Castle Square. St. John's Cathedral is another landmark that attracts tourists to explore the Old Town of Warsaw. The Old Town Square houses the Adam Mickiewicz Museum of Literature, as well as the Warsaw Museum, which describes the dramatic history of the city in its settings.
