Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 1

world pictures Great Mirror

Looks traditional, doesn't it? But there's almost nothing old in this picture of Castle Square except the bronze statue of King Zygmunt, which was installed in 1644 to mark that king's transfer of the capital to Warsaw from Krakow in 1596. The stone column itself has been replaced more than once, and both the Old Town, on the left, and the Royal Palace, on the right, were levelled by the Germans in World War II. Even the square itself is relatively new, having been created in 1820 on the site of old fortifications and a castle courtyard.
