The above photo is the Warsaw's Old Town (Polish: Stare Miasto, colloquially: Starówka), the oldest historic district of the city in Warsaw, Poland. The shot was taken at the Market Square in a very dull and rainy day at 6:48 p.m. before we had dinner here.:)
Warsaw's Old Town was established in the 13th century. During the
Invasion of Poland (1939), much of the district was badly damaged.
After World War II, the Old Town was meticulously rebuilt. As many of
the original bricks were reused as possible. The rubble was sifted for
reusable decorative elements, which were reinserted into their
original places. Bernardo Bellotto's 18th-century vedute, as well as
pre-World-War II architecture students' drawings, were used as
essential sources in the reconstruction effort.
Warsaw's Old Town has been placed on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites as "an outstanding example of a near-total reconstruction of a span of history covering the 13th to the 20th century.
