T he Warsaw Royal Route always competes with the adjacent Old Town for the highest ranking among Warsaw’s attractions. Many prefer the medieval city center, perhaps because it is easier to identify.
The Old Town symbolizes the period before the city’s Golden Age. After the capital and the king’s residence were moved here, the significance of the Old Town diminished, and the Royal Route became the focal point of the city’s political, economic, and cultural life for its residents.
The term ‘Royal Route’ refers to the three interconnected streets of Krakowskie Przedmieście, Nowy Świat, and Aleje Ujazdowskie. When discussing attractions, the focus is mainly on Krakowskie Przedmieście Street, where most of the notable buildings are located.
Throughout its entire length, there is always something interesting to see. Whether it’s magnificent hotels and palaces, monumental churches, or places of great historical significance for Poland’s and Warsaw’s history. Krakowskie Przedmieście Street is Warsaw’s showcase, where people go to be seen.
