Odyssey in Poland & Fryderyk Chopin

Kościół Ewangelicko-Augsburski św. Trójcy
Protestant Church of the Holy Trinity

This rotunda dome was the tallest church in Warsaw in the late 18th century. When Chopin was 15, he performed for the Tsar at this church.

I found an interesting mural on my way to Protestant Church of the Holy Trinity. It would probably be about construction laborers.
Ogród Saski
The Saxon Gardens

And I reached the Saxon Gardens. It is a very pleasant place to stroll through.

Grób Nieznanego Żołnierza
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

At the main entrance to the gardens is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. The last time I was here back in 2005, I happened to be able to witness the changing of the guard. It takes places every hour on the hour.


Plac Zamkowy na skraju Starego Miasta Castle Square on the edge of the Old Town
This area was also destroyed during the World War II by the Nazis and painstakingly rebuilt.

The first time I came here was back in 1998, and it was not like this - I remember it was the area with a very cozy ambience. But this time in 2010, I felt the square had become too clean or too well developed. Indeed, it looked rather new than "old."

Pomnik Syrenki na Rynku Starego Miasta Little Mermaid at Old Town Market Square
And I proceeded into the Old Town Market Square, and found that someone had put a pink ribbon on the front of the Little Mermaid's shield. I wonder if it was part of a promotion for breast cancer awareness or something.
