Warsaw Old Town

Another view of Old Town. Its always so lovely wondering around these cobbled streets, and yet a little strange to remember that it was all destroyed in World War 2, and everything you see was rebuilt.

Museum of the History of Polish Jews

This lively ceiling is in the Museum of the History of Polish Jews, one of the most interest and modern museum’s that I have ever visited. The ceiling is a replica of a synagogue ceiling. By a strange coincident we visited on 1 September, which was the anniversary of the invasion of Poland; 1 Sep 1939 – the beginning of the second world war.

Just around the corner is Mila 18 which played a significant role in the Warsaw Ghetto.

The Chess Room in Warsaw Castle

I call this room the chess room. Partly because I don’t know its real name, but also because the floor reminds me of a chess board. But what astonishes me is the attention to detail. The room is full of wonderful artworks, goldleaf on the walls, wood panelling…whereever you look there is something new to see.

The room is in Warsaw Castle, and is one of the few that doesn’t have a parquet floor.`
