Krakowskie Przedmieście and the Royal Route

Unlike most other European cities, the most important historical street of Warsaw is not in the oldest part of town, but just outside and goes in the other direction.  Krakowskie Przedmieście, the first kilometre of the Royal Route is a gallery of awesome architecture and art; full of palaces, churches,  cafes, restaurants, postcard views, important state institutions, and of course, all kinds of protesters in front of those institutions.

Inside Krakowskie Przedmieście you have the Royal Castle, 4 historical churches, including Holy Cross Church, where Frederic Chopin's heart is buried, Presidential Palace, University of Warsaw, two most luxurious and prestigious hotels in the city and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
