Warsaw in 1919 And Today

Well, as I am from Warsaw, this photo really breaks my heart.

It was taken in 1919 and shows Saxon Garden, Saxon Palace, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and other buildings near the Saxon Square.

Unfortunately, the Saxon Palace and the Cathedral were destroyed during WWII and this is what is left today:

As you can see, only that small part of arcades survived. Nowadays this place is known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and the square changed it’s name to Piłsudski Square.
