21 February 2010 - PL-70060 - Warszawa

One month ago, I received a multiview from the city Warszawa in Poland . It was a view days before I decided to go to Poland this summer. So I was very happy when I found another multiview pf Warszawa in my mailbox! It has traveled a distance of 1068 kms in 10 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.
