Old Warsaw, New Warsaw

A great quote today on Warsaw:

And so began the day at the Warsaw Uprising Museum

Then we enjoyed a beautiful walk in Warsaw…

With lovely art and music surrounding us:

I did a blog post on this last year but the importance of this site cannot be understated:

We then had some fun with one of our favorite family topics of interest: modern art at the Zacheta Museum.

Modern Art Museum

This exhbit featured some fascinating topics including:

Can young artists afford artistic hooliganism? Is the fascination with real or potential destruction in art a way to revolutionary changes or just an artistic strategy? What is the purpose of artistic pranks and mischief?

A family who loves art together stays together!

Last Walk in Warsaw

For our last night we decided to leave the Old Town (Stare Miasto) and venture into new parts of Warsaw for a special farewell dinner.  This was followed by a walk of fountains, the tomb of the fallen soldiers – guarded 24 hours a day, an art gallery, and Teatr Wielki.

Guarded tomb of fallen soliders of Poland

this is guarded 24 hours a day and columns surround it listing each war dating back to the 900s

My dad told us about each battle listed

Then we moved on to the opera house where exactly 10 years ago we saw La Traviata in the Emperor box seats – I will never forget it.

Alas, the Land of Polish Pierogies!

Dinner at Polwale.  Fabulous seats.  Saw every dish that came out of the kitchen.  Savored the wild Mushroom soup and  mussels in white wine.  Dad had a liter of beer which was as big as my non-Polish face.  When I went to take a sip, several, I keep getting foam on my nose!

A long walk after dinner and a pleasant adjustment to see people “strolling”.  We joined the crowd. Accomplished buskers on the street corners. Warsaw is full of young people probably because of the universities,  Schools for the Arts abound.
