Awesome column

I read that the older columns were on the grass beside the castle and they were! It was really awesome to see all of the statues that King Sigismund has stood on top of!

King Sigismund's Column is located in the middle of the castle square. Great to take photos there. Nice, but not the main attraction in this area.

Yet another significant monument to add to your Wishlist. Located at the entrance to the Old Town and the northern end of Krakowskie Przedmieście. It has a very interesting history behind it. Look it up its worth the time

nice column in the center of the Castle Square. Castle Square is a vibrant place and great for people watching on a summy day

Meeting point and central part of the Castle Square. Not much to say about it apart that you can take nice pictures when the weather is cooperating and the sky is blue.

The statue is located at the entrance to the Old Town opposite the Royal Castle as a memory of the Swedish-Polish king Sigismund that moved the capital from Cracow to Warsaw. Nice restaurants in the square. Lovely in Christmas time with small shops around and a beautiful Christman tree.
