The Warsaw Barbican is one of the most must have to visit places in the Warsaw.There are you can see the oldest defence structure in Poland. And you can touch to this history, you can feel, how queen or king or people who lived there many year ago. I think that the greatest time to visit Barbican or city, it is time when I spend there was unbelievable.

Warsaw Barbican is beautiful in the winter when the area is decorated for Christmas. It is especially nice if you wait until nighttime and get the fully lighted experience. And, the fact that history is everywhere is a solid plus!

Beautiful and picturesque with interesting angles all the way around. Very touristy but there are areas you can be a little more secluded.

Most of the buildings are new, but built according to the originals before WW2. I recommend the free walking tours, that way you can find out more about the old town, and of course, about the Barbican. Only 4* because it's missing the old gate which existed before the war.

Great place to take photos. Very historical! Quite a bit of tourists though. Best to visit during the week and not during the weekend.

The Warsaw Barbican in Warsaw, Poland, and one of few remaining relics of the complex network of historic fortifications that once encircled Warsaw. Located between the Old and New Towns, it is a major tourist attraction.

A landmark to see whilst wandering about the old town. There are a few street artists displaying their work if you are after such work.

The barbican was erected in 1540 in place of an older gate to protect Nowomiejska Street. It was designed by Jan Baptist the Venetian, an Italian Renaissance architect who lived and worked in the Mazowsze region of 16th century Poland and was instrumental in the redesign of the 14th-century city walls, which by that time had fallen into disrepair. The barbican had the form of a three-level semicircular bastion manned by fusiliers. It was 14 meters wide and 15 meters high from the bottom of the moat, which surrounded the city walls, and extended 30 meters from the external walls. Almost immediately after its inception, the 4-tower barbican became an anachronismserving virtually no practical purpose. This was largely a result of the rapid advancement in artillery power. It was used in the defense of the city only once, during the Swedish invasion of Poland, on 30 June 1656, when it had to be recaptured by the Polish army of Polish king John II Casimir from the Swedes. In the 18th century, the barbican was partially dismantled as its defensive value was negligible, and the city benefited more from a larger gate which facilitated movement of people and goods in and out of the city. In the 19th century, its remains were incorporated into newly built apartment buildings. During the interwar period, in 1937–1938, Jan Zachwatowicz reconstructed part of the walls and the western part of the bridge, demolishing one of the newer buildings in the reconstruction process. However, a lack of funds delayed the barbican's planned complete reconstruction, and the 1939 invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany put the plans on hold. During World War II, particularly the Siege of Warsaw (1939) and the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, the barbican was largely destroyed, as were most of the Old Town's buildings. It was rebuilt after the war, during 1952–1954, on the basis of 17th-century etchings, as the new government decided it would be cheaper to rebuild the barbican and the nearby city walls as a tourist attraction than to rebuild the tenements. In its reconstruction, bricks were used from historic buildings demolished in the cities of Nysa and Wrocław; most of the barbican was rebuilt, save for two exterior gates and the oldest tower on the side of the Old Town. It is currently a popular tourist attraction.
