Warsaw the capital and largest city of Poland. Historical center - Castle Square with Zygmunt's Column.

Zygmunt's Column or Sigismund's Column (Polish: Kolumna Zygmunta), erected in 1644, is one of Warsaw's most famous landmarks and one of the oldest secular monuments in northern Europe. The column and statue commemorate King Zygmunt III Waza, who in 1596 had moved Poland's capital from Kraków to Warsaw. Erected between 1643 and 1644, the column was constructed on the orders of Zygmunt's son and successor, King Władysław IV Vasa. It was designed by the Italian-born architect Constantino Tencalla and the sculptor Clemente Molli, and cast by Daniel Tym. The Zygmunt's Column was modelled on the Italian columns in front of Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (erected in 1614 to designs of Carlo Maderno), and the Column of Phocas in Rome (Władysław Vasa seen both of them during his visit to Rome in 1625)/from wikipedia/.

Czerwcowy dzień na Placu Zamkowym w Warszawie. Król Zygmunt III Waza jak zwykle spogląda w dół z kolumny na której został ustawiony około roku 1644. W tle widoczna zabudowa Starego Miasta.

Hello Slawek,

I have always wanted to visit Poland but this will suffice for now. I like the chosen perspective in showcasing Warsaw's architecture. The image is sharp and well exposed. I wish you well.
