WITH ME YOU WILL DISCOVER...

…the only place in the world where entire, historical town was reconstructed

…how the column of king Sigismund III - a very unique monument in the history of art - can be read as electoral „billboard” from XVIIth century

…a dangerous role that children played in the Warsaw Uprising and why the momunent dedicated to them lies about it?

…the house where Madame Curie was born, the most famous female scientist in history

…probably the only church in the world inside of which a war frontline passed

...how is it possible, that many appartments in the Royal Castle look today exactly the same as in XVIIIth century, although everything was turned into rubble during WWII
