Last year I missed to take you to our traditional walk along the Royal Route in Warsaw. This year we will be making up for it and strolling along the nicely illuminated streets once again. Let's get out on the Świętokrzyska metro station.
On the left hand side you can see the Nowy Świat street with some garlands on top and a type of Christmas tree bulb on the lamps.
But we will go this time to the right, to the Krakowskie Przedmieście street.
Here, the lanterns are decorated into something I do not really understand. Any ideas what this shape is supposed to symbolise?
First, next to the monument of Copernicus and the Polish Academy of Science, you will see the solar system.
A few steps further, you can try to imagine yourself entering the gates of the Warsaw University, allegedly the best in the country.
As we move on, we pass besides a very special book, exhibiting the highlights of Warsaw.
Look, this is a Chopin bench, like the one we have seen in Łazienki.
And here comes the Presidential Palace, with the Christmas tree lit up in the colours of the Polish flag.
Finally, we arrive to the heart of the Old Town.
This is also a station for a very special train.
That transport a very special cargo.
Finally, we enter the Castle Square. The streets around it are nicely decorated.
But it is the Castle itself that is the most impressive this year.
The Christmas tree is so tall. Looks like a good omen for the upcoming year.
Happy New Year everyone!
