Short description

The Royal Route always competes with the adjacent Old Town for the highest ranking of Warsaw’s attractions. Many prefer the medieval city centre, possibly because it is “easier” to justify.

However, we believe that the Royal Route had a far greater influence on the development of Warsaw into what it is today. The Old Town is a symbol of the time before the city’s Golden Age. After the King’s capital and residence were moved here, the Old Town core lost its importance and the Royal Route became the centre of the political, economic and cultural life of the city and its inhabitants.

We invite you to our detailed description, as the list of highlights is too long to be duly presented here.
