2/23.- Warsaw, The symbol of Warsaw

We are right now in the middle of the Market Square. In front of us we have the symbol of Warsaw - a mermaid. There is a legend connected with this mermaid - she was a young woman called Sawa, who was changed into a mermaid by a wicked witch and had to live in the Vistula river. Her beloved one, a fisherman called Wars, after many adventures, rescued her, and they decided to marry and live on the shore of Vistula. From their names (Wars + Sawa) derives the name of the city “Warszawa” (as we call it in Polish).

Let’s have a sit in one of the numerous cafes and restaurants, which are located here. When you’ve finished your coffee, click next to continue.
