4/23.- Warsaw, Kanonia Square


The Old Town of Warsaw is not very huge, because Warsaw was at that times just a provincial city (the capital was Krakow), but it has many magic places. We are in one of them - this is a square (well, a triangle to be more precise) behind the cathedral. Each monk, who served in the cathedral, had his own house. Some of these monks were quite famous, like Stanislaw Staszic who was the co-author of the first Polish constitution (it was in the year 1793 - Poland had the first written constitution in Europe).

The bell in the middle of the square should be hanging in the bell tower, but unfortunately it cracked before being hanged and somebody left it at this spot a couple of hundred years ago…
