Between 85% and 90% of the city of Warsaw was destroyed during World War Two following the failed Warsaw Uprising, which infuriated Hitler. The castle at right and Sigismind’s Column at left were victims of the destruction. Both were rebuilt between 1971 and 1984, incorporating the remnants of the originals wherever possible. Most of the original column now lies in pieces on a lawn adjacent to the castle. The Castle, which was the historic residence of Polish kings, was restored in such perfect detail that it was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980.
