  • In a memory of one of polish kings (of foreign origin), this monument is a landmark of Warsaw, often seen on postcards. Offers decent photo opportunities, but nothing beyond that. 
  • Located in the heart of the Old Town, it is a picturesque and most beautiful of Vrasovia site. The surroundings are essential to visit and photograph, the Royal Palace, the Gothic bridge, etc.

  • Because Sigismund deserved to be on a column so high? Is it because the made by he played (transfer of capital from Kraków to Warsaw) was of utmost importance for Poland? (to Warsaw was sure!)? Maybe because those who ordered the construction of the column (the son successor) was very proud of his father! Anyway, it may be that the column is nothing more than a trite column, but 3 things led me to assign 4 *: 1) the height of the column; 2) the symbolism of the same; 3) the usefulness of the marking point of reunion of hikers.

  • Nice square with the king's heroic statue in the middle. Here you can meet the guides for free walking tours around Warsaw. Most of the tours begin from here. Also there is Warsaw castle and other old and politically important buildings..
  • Here you can find great (and even free) historical tours. Historical place with beautiful buildings around.
  • Nice square with statue. It would be great if there is any information in English.
  • It's a nice place to meet. Good views. The station on the corner has a free bathroom. Old town looks like Disneyland.
  • Tall column with a nice statue, in the middle of the large square (good meeting point). One of Warsaw's landmarks. Must see it.
