King Sigismund's Column

 Pl. Zamkowy Warsaw Poland     19 May 2017

Built in honour of the man who made Warsaw the capital of Poland, the column was erected back in 1664 and stands twenty-two metres high. During the war the column collapsed under bombardment and the original now lies close to the Royal Castle (and is considered lucky to touch). The figure of Sigismund survived and the new column was proudly re-erected in 1949.
