Royal Route in Warsaw

The Royal Route extends from Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy) to the end of Krakowskie Przedmiescie and Nowy Swiat. The highlight of this district is Nowy Swiat and Krakowskie Przedmiescie Street. Along both streets one can admire buildings that are predominantly NeoClassical in style as well as many churches and palaces. Nowy Swiat and Krakowskie Przedmiescie also feature many exclusive cafes, restaurants, stores and fashionable boutiques. Nowy Swiat is great for walks as part of the street is closed for traffic.

In middle ages this area was occupied by Warsaw's wealthiest residents. The area suffered during the Swedish invasion in 1655 but it was soon rebuilt.

Some of the attractions that are worth seeing are: Warsaw University, Bristol Hotel, Potocki Palace, Holly Cross Church, Adam Mickiewicz monument as well as Nicholas Copernicus monument. All of the attractions are located along Nowy Swiat and Krakowskie Przedmiescie Streets.
