GoPoland!: Where to Go: Olsztyn : Sights

 High
 Gate
On your way to the town square, you're likely to pass by this impressive looking remnant of the old medieval fort.
 Town 
 Hall
To best appreciate the new Town Hall, stand across the street. Looking slightly uphill, you can take in the size (appreciative) and the old base standing foundation to the new building.
 Memorial
 Statue
Yet another example of social realism: this statue stands in the park between the Planetarium and the Town Hall, and appears to be useful for more than remembering the past.
 Olsztyn's
 Architecture
The yet-to-be renovated buildings lend a sense of the past.
 Town 
 Mall
And the newly-built town mall on pl. Pulaskiego offers a sense of the future.
 Olsztyn 
 Castle
As with most castles begun hundreds of years ago, this one celebrates a mix of styles. This tower remains the oldest hunk of the original, and sits companionably next to the more recent elements.
 St. Jacob's
 Cathedral
Undergoing renovation, the large, even huge, St. Jacob's stands off the town center on ul. Staszica.
