Warsaw

Tibet Roundabout

  Rondo Tybetu     more than a year ago
The Tibetan Gallery at the Tibet Roundabout in the Wola district of Warsaw is a fine example of what a little bit of colour can do to an otherwise dull urban area. Started in 2009, following the Dalai Lama's visit to Warsaw, street art depicting the Tibetan struggle for autonomy from Beijing was painted here on the pillars of a flyover (the Chinese government didn't quite like the idea!). The initiative coincided with Warsaw City Council's decision to award the Dalai Lama honorary citizenship of the city! Along with various pieces of art depicting the Tibetan struggle, there is a commemorative plaque dedicated to the heroes of the Tibetan national uprising of 1959. To get there from the centre, take bus 171 to stop 'PKP Kasprzaka' and walk the short distance to the flyover. Alternatively, take the metro to Rondo Daszyńskiego and get buses 105, 109, 155 and 190 to the same stop.
