Warsaw

Warsaw is the capital of Poland and the largest city in Europe. Having survived many shocks and conquests, she carefully preserved to this day the most valuable of her every era. People come to Warsaw to wander along the streets of the Old Town and the picturesque embankment of the Vistula, take a stroll through the immense Lazenkovsky park and see the Church of the Holy Cross, where Chopin’s heart rests.

Neptune Fountain in Gdansk

Neptune, which stands in front of the Court of Artus on Town Hall Square, is considered the immutable ruler of Gdansk and its personification.

Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene in Wroclaw

The Cathedral of St. Mary Magdalene (Katedra sw. Marii Magdaleny) is a Gothic church located near the central market square of the city. It was built in the 13th century, although the first church in its present place appeared already at the end of the 11th century. During the Mongol invasion, the church was destroyed, and the next one was destroyed by fire in the mid-14th century. After that, a new large church was built in its place in a severe Gothic style, placing more than impressive bells on the towers. The towers were completed in 1488, and several side chapels were added in the 15th and 16th centuries. In 1525, it became Protestant and remained so until the end of World War II, after which it was made a non-cathedral Catholic Cathedral. Continue reading
