| Pałac Czapskich
As I stopped by Czapski Palace, now the Academy of Fine Arts, I got surprised to see a great number of abstract head statues. I could easily recognize them as Chopin's, and could instantly tell there were 200 of them. Obviously it was the art celebrating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fryderyk Chopin.
|Each head was looking toward different directions and that randomness I think makes this art look even more interesting.|
University of Warsaw
And across the street heading toward the old library of the University of Warsaw, I saw a Chopin profile in a big red poster saying "1810 - 2010 Śladami Chopina po Uniwersytecie Warszawskim" meaning the footsteps of Chopin's University of Warsaw.
In the University of Warsaw campus, there is Pałac Kazimierzowski (Kazimierzowski Palace), where Chopin lived from the age of 7 to 17.
As I came here in 2005, this building was gray like this, but I guess they have colored it bright yellow.
