The Old Town Market Square in Warsaw is an integral part of the city’s UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This street is named in honour of  Warsaw (Varsovie in French, Warszawa in Polish), the capital of Poland. The city was founded around 1280 by the dukes of Mazovia, who built a castle on the Vistula River.
