Warsaw Barbican

Warsaw, Poland
4.8 / 98
warsaw-barbicanwarsaw-barbican
A powerful 16th-century fortification in the fortification system of the Old Town, erected by the project of the Italian master D. Batista. The building did not perform defensive functions. At the base of the barbican tower is a monument to the Siren. According to legend, in ancient times the Siren emerged from the river and informed people that soon a great city would appear on the banks. Today, the fort is an exhibition gallery.

I read people referring to the age of this fortified entrance to the old town but I'm afraid this a thorough and careful reconstruction after it was almost raised to the ground in WWII. It makes it maybe more admirable.

The Warsaw Barbican is an awe-inspiring piece of living history. This meticulously preserved fortress transports visitors to a bygone era, with its impressive red-brick walls and medieval architecture. Stepping inside feels like a journey through tim.. Read more »

I think it is definitely a landmark and the place is worth visiting, but it lacks authenticity. Obviously, it was restored and it looks like it was built yesterday and not in the 16th century.

This is a really impressive entry gate to the old city, across the wall. You can walk along the wall in both directions and around the base. Considering its age, it is very well preserved and in lovely condition for a brick built structure.

Beautiful place, we had a chance to rent an apartment nearby. Looks great during the day and beautiful during the night as it is covered with lights. You can also meet some artists performing there.

Poland's second largest barbican and there are only two in this country. This makes it really unique piece of multifunction medieval city gate.

With so much of the original city unfortunately destroyed in WWII, it’s an important part of any trip to Warsaw to see those historic bits of the Old Town which still remain. The Barbican gate is chief among those, in my mind. A sight to behold.. Read more »

Mighty building in the middle of Warszaw, similar to the one in Krakow but of course, majestic in any way with many nice views. Also, it´s perfect for having a stroll around it.
