Sidewalks of Warsaw, Poland

Over 85% of Warsaw was destroyed by the Nazis during World War II. The Old Town section of Warsaw, now fully reconstructed, has wide, beautifully landscaped sidewalks.  On Sundays, some of the streets in Old Town are closed to vehicles, and I saw many families and students strolling leisurely.

Cars were parked directly on the sidewalk, near Jana Pawla Avenue.

Warsaw Ghetto. The inscription along the sidewalk shows where the ghetto wall used to stand.
