We spent a day strolling in the Warsaw downtown area and Old Town. It was the first time in a long while that we felt like "real tourists". It was actually pretty nice to feel like a tourist in my " own town"!!!

Palace of Culture and Science- probably the most recognized landmark of Warsaw. To us a very special place.

"Maly Powstaniec" ("Little Insurrectionist") is a monument commemorating all child-soldiers who fought and died during the Warsaw Uprising in 1944. It's a figure of a small boy wearing a helmet too large for his head and a submachine gun.

In Warsaw, as in many other European cities, there is a tradition of lovers putting padlocks on bridges to symbolize their devotion to each other and the permanence of their relationship.
