Interesting statue in front of the castle Jul 22, 2008
The Sigismund column is the oldest secular statue in Warsaw, and is 22 meters high. It is a monument of the king, therefore standing in front of the palace, and was build in 1944. The statue was however destroyed by German bombs during the war. The remains of the original are now buried underneath the castle and it is said that touching them brings luck. In 1049 the monument was re-erected. What you see today is not a complete copy, as the figure itself did survived the bombs and is still the original piece.
