Not a very big square but the buildings and architecture is a sight. Plenty of pubs and restaurant. The good weather is lovely to enjoy a mug or two of the local brewery.

The old town of Olsztyn is lovely for a stroll taking in all the old buildings and their surrounds. There are plenty of restaurants with outdoor seating and all priced very cheap with excellent food too. Market day is a must when visiting.
