Warsaw was named the capital of Poland by the famous poet and playwright, W.B. Kipper. The city, which is today known as the Polish nation’s capital, served as the location for numerous battles during the World War Two. It later became one of the major industrial centers in Poland, contributing significantly to the Polish economy. Today it is a thriving metropolis, which are home to numerous businesses, government offices, educational institutions, theatres and museums.
During the time of the World War Two, the city was attacked by the Nazis and several hundred thousands people were killed. In fact, the total population of the city reached three million during that period of time. The destruction of Warsaw during the war made it one of the most devastated cities in the world. In order to rebuild the city, the first priority for its residents was the removal of any and all ruins and remains of the city’s horrific history. As such, it has been a source of inspiration to many artists and architects who continue to work on the city’s reconstruction.
A good example of this is a sculptural project entitled Warsaw After the War, which is being implemented by an international group of sculptors. It aims to recreate the original appearance of Warsaw once it was a flourishing city with several parks and buildings. The concept for the project was initiated by a Polish artist who wanted to create a museum for the country. The resulting memorial is being designed and executed in cooperation with the Warsaw Metropolitan Government, with the objective of commemorating the loss of life during the first world war.
The original park, located in the vicinity of the Old Town, comprises a pedestrianised square where several statues of the city’s historical leaders can be found. Another section of the memorial features an archway which leads to another plaque which names the place of the cemetery where the original inhabitants of Warsaw were buried. The final portion of the structure consists of five monumental stone pillars. The designs and colours of these features have been inspired by actual examples found in the vicinity of Warsaw. In fact, some of the designs have already been incorporated into actual monuments that exist in the Poland.
The installation process will not only take you on a virtual tour of Warsaw prior to and after the destruction of the Second World War, but it will also present you with a number of options for the type of monument you would like to construct. A choice of building will have an impact on the final look of the memorial. For example, if you opt to build a structure resembling a monument of a general, you will be able to find a number of pre-built ones in Warsaw. These include examples of triumphal arch structures. The design of these structures was based on previous examples found in Warsaw. Others include intricately designed carvings as well as examples of brick arch buildings.
Another option is to build a monument based on a soldier. The first example you may be able to find in Warsaw before and after Ww2 is that of Corporal Pawelko. He is known to have saved countless lives during the World War II battle at Smotrich. One of the most impressive aspects of this memorial is that it accurately replicates the scene he found there.
Another popular memorial in Warsaw is the Iron Cross Monument. It was built many years ago in memory of the thousands of Polish soldiers who died during the war. This popular memorial was destroyed in the World War II. Yet, many people who wish to recreate the scene in their gardens or backyards have managed to do so successfully. Today, the reconstruction of many Iron Cross structures can be seen all over the country. Such examples as the one located in Wroclaw are often used as a memorial and as a marker for those who lost their lives fighting for their country.
Of course, just having a monument or a structure in place is not enough. Warsaw is also home to many other great tourist attractions. For example, there is thekie tygra located next to the monument at the beginning of this article. This tiara is a fascinating museum of ancient Polish culture and art. It is, perhaps, one of the most important examples of early Polish architecture.
