In comparison to other large European cities Warsaw is filled with monuments. Here are the most worth seeing.

Praga band monument

Lokalizacja: Warszawa, ul. Floriańska 1

A sculpture depicting five musicians. The monument's founder is archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głódź who, grateful for giving him Warsaw's honourable citizenship, decided to repay the city's inhabitants in such a way.

If you want to listen how such bands sounded, you can send a text message using the number that is written on the monument. You can choose from around 100 pieces, the full list is also provided there.

Before the war, this type of bands were often met on the streets, squares and yards. Today, on Chmielna street or in the underground passage next to the Centrum metro station, you can still see Orkiestra z Chmielnej, now quite advanced in age, playing Warsaw folk hits.
