Old Town Warsaw's Market Square, or Old Town Market Place, is the heart of this historic district. This square was reconstructed after WWII to reattain its Renaissance-era look. Each building has architectural details that signify something about its history or significance - be sure to examine them more closely when you visit the square.
In the middle of the square stands the Warsaw mermaid monument. The mermaid, a symbol of the city, was not always located in the square. It was only in recent years that she found a permanent home here, but the legend that connects her with the city makes the heart of it a fitting place of residence.
