Warsaw – a Past that is Not Forgettable and a Future that is on its Way

One of the saddest chapters of the world’s history takes part in Poland. But Warsaw proves that no amount of immense sadness can last forever. Even if sometimes the atmosphere seems to grieve for the past, there is a silent feeling of constant victory. The country is being rebuilt on the path of happiness and the future seems bright there!

I spent too little time on Warsaw while on vacation last year. And the rolls I had left were B&W film. So, I only have a few photos and none of them have colors in it. But in a sad way, B&W suits the city well. It is impossible for someone to go there and not think about how much suffering this country has went through.

Oddly enough, besides monuments related to WWII, I saw two curious, funny things. Both are on the same square: a bear holding a shield and a pole with a fairy and a unicorn on its top. I have no idea what these mean, if anyone knows, please tell me.

    Beautiful shots of my home city :) the bear statue is actually for a bear named Wojtek that served in the Polish army in World War II ! He helped carry ammunition and enjoyed a good beer with his fellow soldiers. http://en.wikipedia.(…)ldier_bear)
