Palace Square

Castle Square and the Royal Palace, rebuilt between 1971 and 1984, are usually the first part of the Old Town that one sees when walking in from the rest of the town. It is the 'doorway' into the old town, with several narrow streets leading off it into the rest of the district. About the only thing left standing after the war was Zygmont's Column, erected in 1644.

The roads leading to and from the square abound with churches that twinkle in the evening dusk, testament to Poland's dedication to Catholicism
