Slavic Countries RR - Group 58

I got some nice cards from Poland via the Slavic Countries RR - Group 58 two weeks ago! One card shows the capital city Warszawa, which is an UNESCO site as well and was send by Sylwiail.

During the Warsaw Uprising in August 1944, more than 85% of Warsaw's historic centre was destroyed by Nazi troops. After the war, a five-year reconstruction campaign by its citizens resulted in today's meticulous restoration of the Old Town, with its churches, palaces and market-place. It is an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century.

The second card was send by delenn_mir and shows us the Cloth Hall from Krakow!
