    New Town Square

    by acemj Updated Nov 19, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Leaving Old Town square, it's just a short walk through the Barbican and up Ul Freta to the New Town Square, a much quieter and open space. There are some nice homes around the square and some cafes along Ul Freta itself. The New Town was founded in the late 14th century, so it's actually not that much newer than the Old Town. The New Town was inhabited historically by those of slightly lower social standing than those living in the Old Town and was never surrounded by fortifying walls. The Baroque Church at the far end of the square is the Church of the Nuns of the Holy Sacrament which is the desing of architect Tylman van Gameren.

    New Town Square (Plaza de la Ciudad Nueva)

    by elcolibri Updated Sep 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The New Town was buit more than 600 years. Its square (Rynek Nowego Miasta) has in the center a fountain built in XIX Century and around very nice coffee and restaurants. Freta Street is the most important in New Town and comes from Barbican.
    La Ciudad Nueva fue construida hace casi 600 años y en su centro tiene una fuente que data del siglo XIX. Su calle más importante es la Calle Freta y la Plaza del Mercado es su sitio de parada obligatoria con sus iglesias, monumentos y terrazas para descansar y beber algo.

    A quiet retreat from the Old Town

    by cheekykev Written Aug 24, 2005

    Mariensztat lies below the Old Town and is a good place to escape the crowds and have a quiet drink. Many years ago it was famed for its brothels and bare-knuckle bouts - nowadays it lies at the heart of a green area which is almost entirely free of cars and has some sympathetically restored buildings.

    Next church in New Town.

    by Dagon Written Apr 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Church of Our Mary Lady is a parish church of the New Town. It was founded in 1409. The temple itself has been rebuilt many times. At present, together with its slender belfry it represents a gothic style.

    New Town is an extension of the Old Town in Warsaw.
    There are few interesting churches there for example the Church of Saint Kazimierz.
    The church and the convent was built by the project of Tylman von Gameren. The building of the church started in year 1688.

    The Church.

    New Town

    by AcornMan Written Sep 13, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You have to realize that "new" is a relative concept in Warsaw. New Town is indeed newer than Old Town, but it is still quite old by any standard. This area of Warsaw began to develop during the 14th century and gained its own separate status in 1408. In 1791 it lost its independence and became part of the City of Warsaw. Although largely destroyed during World War II, New Town was meticulously recreated after the war and is now one of the city's most popular districts. Getting there from Old Town couldn't be easier. Just walk out through the Barbican and head north.

    Rynek Nowego Miasto and Holy Sacrament church

    by Carletto76 Written Aug 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At the end of ul. Freta there is the New Town Market Square, once the commercial point of the town. All the surrounding houses have been rebuilt with their 18th century style facades. It's a very quiet place comparing to the Old Town streets and squares, and I liked it a lot. At the eastern corner ther is the Holy Sacrament church, build again by the architect Tylman of Gameren after the destruction of Warsaw by the Swedish wars in the 17th century.

    Nowe Miasto - The New Town

    by ania70pl Written Sep 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    New Town began to develop in 14th century. In 1408 Duke Janusz the Elder granted Nowe Miasto a seperate status from the Old Town. The New Town had its own council, a Town Hall and several churches and monasteries. It was not fortified in contrast to the Old Town. In 1791 New Town was incorporated into Warsaw. During World War II New Town suffered severe damage but was restored to its original glamour.

    The streets of Old Warsaw maintain a great charming althought they are "new" streets because it were rebuilt 50 years ago. Warsaw is a clean and peaceful city to walk and enjoy.
    Las calles del casco historico de Varsovia mantienen un encanto increible a pesar de ser calles "nuevas" pues son reconstruidas hace menos de 50 años. Varsovia es una urbe limpia y tranquila para caminar por la ciudad antigua y nueva.

    If there's an Old Town, there's got to be a New Town too, right? This is it. Actually, the New Town doesn't look that much newer than the Old--but that's OK. It's also a nice place to run around, and has its own square too (Market Square is pictured here).

    The smallest House in Warsaw

    by alancollins Written Sep 1, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small building, that is now a kiosk, was built towards the end of the 18th century, in a neo-Classical style. It has always had the distinction of being the smallest house in Warsaw.
