Śródmieście ([ɕrudˈmʲeɕt͡ɕe] meaning "city centre", "downtown") is the central borough (dzielnica) of the city of Warsaw. The best known neighborhoods in the borough are the Old Town (Stare Miasto) and New Town (Nowe Miasto).

The area is home to the most important national and municipal institutions, many businesses, higher education establishments (e.g. University of Warsaw, Warsaw University of Technology and Medical Academy) and theatres. It is also home to most of the tourist attractions in Warsaw, including the tallest building in Warsaw (231 m),[1] the narrowest street (5.3 m)[citation needed], the oldest university (est. 1809), the oldest public park (opened 1727),[2] the oldest secular monument (1644) and the oldest historical building (13th century)[citation needed].

The name is also colloquially used for Warszawa Śródmieście railway station.
