Description: Nazi troops destroyed over 85% of Warsaw's historic centre during the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944. After the war, its citizens led a five-year reconstruction campaign which resulted in the current scrupulous Old Town, with its churches, palaces and market-place. It is an exceptional instance of a near-total reconstruction of sites spanning a history covering the 13th to the 20th century. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
  Warsaw's Old Town (Polish: Stare Miasto, colloquially: Starówka) is the oldest historic district of the city. It is bounded by Wybrzeże Gdańskie, along the bank of the Vistula, and by Grodzka, Mostowa and Podwale Streets. It is one of Warsaw's most prominent tourist attractions. --Wikipedia.
