Sygismund III was a great king of Poland. He also ruled in Sweden, but was put away by the protestants. His son erected this column and statue which was replaced after WWII. It is a meeting point for locals, but for tourist groups s well.

A meeting point for many locals and for many of the Warsaw walking tours. It’s a grand column depicting king sigismund. Worth looking up online the photos of the column destroyed during the wars.

This tall column in the castle square is a great place to tell someone to meet you as it can be seen all over the square. Glad the Poles were able to rebuild it after the 1944 Uprising destroyed the city
