When we are getting close to Old Town we notice this column at distance more than the church tower. It dates from 17th century but was destroyed and rebulit so many times there´s nothing more left from that period apart from the statue.
Fine statue of a very important King in Polish history. However, it towers so high above the ground so details are difficult to se without binoculars (always recommended when sighjtseeing) or a good telephoto lens.
King Sigismund's Column, which dates back to the 1600s, in addition to being a work of art, is one of Warsaw's famous landmarks in Old Town. It is a good meeting place and great for photo opportunities.
Next to the old town and opposite the castle. Large metal column. Nothing much more to it and seems to be a meeting point
One of Warsaw's best known monuments, this column stands tall in Plac Zamkowy as you reach the old town. It's very popular as a meeting point for people as it has black steps you can sit on at its base and there is usually a great buzz around with various performance artists…
