Historic Centre of Warsaw
In 1944, during the Warsaw Uprising, Nazis destroyed completly 85% of the Warsaw Old Town. After the war Poles decided to rebuilt this the most beautiful part of their capital, carefully following preserved historic documentation, old plans, maps and photos.
They have done this extraordinary work in five years.
Warsaw’s Old Town is an outstanding example of an almost total reconstruction of monuments covering the 13th to the 20th century.
