The slide show below is a sampling of the many photographs I took during my recent trip to Warsaw and Kraków, Poland.
The photos can be viewed on the screen below or, to view larger images, click on the diagonal arrows in the lower right-hand corner of the screen.
Some additional information will help provide context for these photos.
Stare Miasto means "Old Town," while Starego Miasta means "Old Town Square."
The sign at the entrance to the Starego Miasta explains that the Old Town Square is a "National cultural monument [that] was raised by the Warsaw revolutionary people from the rubble thrown down by the Nazi occupiers in 1944. The government of the Polish people rebuilt and restored this from the ruins of the nation in the years 1951-1953."
Additional context is also provided in previous posts about the Wieliczka Salt Mine, Touring war-torn Poland, and Seeking out 'non-war' Poland in addition to my four-part travel guide.
