20 January 2010 - PL -62970 - Warszawa

I received a nice view from Warszawa from Poland one week ago, just a few days before I booked my summer trip to Poland! I will visit Warszawa as well! The card has travelled a distance of 1086 kms in 13 days.

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.
