The column is easy to spot from anywhere which helps you find castle square. There are some very good restaurants and public bathrooms within a few hundred feet

This is just a rebuilt version of the old column that was bombed in the war. Next to the Warsaw castle, you can see the original column lying down along the river. Somehow the statue of Sigmund survived the fall and has been place back...More

I wouldn't say this is a must do since if you visit warsaw you're most likely going to the old town and will see this anyway. I wouldn't say it was a must do but glad I got to see it.

This column is topped with the man who changed the capital city of Poland from Krakow to Warsaw and provides an idea of what Polish people can do.

This column is located on another square in Old Town. You can still see some of the bullet holes as some Poles were executed on this location.

Whether you are shopping, strolling or looking for a good cafe, you must see King Sigismund's Column in Old Town Market Square. Around him there are booths with hand-made Polish goods, museums, boutiques and lots of little eateries.
