Warsaw's old town - historic centre of Warsaw, today is the most popular tourist attraction of the city.
The old town is absolutely small, is, rather, a quarter, a compact complex of historic architecture, partially surrounded by defensive walls.

The Church of the Holy Savior in Warsaw, the Polish name Najświętszego Kościół Zbawiciela, is valid to this day Catholic Cathedral.
This Basilica is a true decoration of the square of the Savior. Without it the area would not be so charming and would be quite grey, gloomy and miserly look.
