#Warsaw . Capitol city of Poland.
Unlike Krakow. Warsaw was purposefully destroyed by the Nazis. Up to 90% of the city, that's insane to think.
Hitler despised the Polish people and the inahabitants of Warsaw because until the very last moments of the war they still put up resistence. So he wanted to wipe them off the map.
The #historical old town is technically only 70years old. But they remade it to what it would have looked like through the centuries before the nazi destruction. Its #beautiful . And sad to think the Germans had so much hate they destroyed it all.
And then came Stalin and the Russians and their communist influence on architecture which runs over Warsaw everywhere. Big blocks of square flats and apartments and buildings. Pretty grim.
Summing up the Russian influence stands Stalins 'palace of culture and science', (or his version of).
It stands menacingly over the city centre.
So out of place, but weirdly beautiful. It just sits there as a constant reminder of Poland's unfortunate communist past and history.
