9/23.- Warsaw, Freta Street


We are now entering the New Town. It was founded in the beginning of the fifteenth century, and to distinguish it from the Old Warsaw, it was called the New Town.

Freta is a busy street with lots of pedestrians and many good but not so expensive restaurants and pubs. In one of the houses on the right hand side, Marie Curie was born at the end of nineteenth century. She was the only person who has received two Nobel prizes (one from physics, the other from chemistry), and the first woman to receive these prizes. She discovered Rad (which started the development of radiation as a science) and Polon (which she named after Poland). The house serves as her museum (I’ve never found time to visit it).
