Castle Square

This beautiful card was sent by Sylwie, from Poland.

Warsaw is the capital of Poland. It is known as the "phoenix city" because it was completely destroyed during World War II and rebuilt with the heroic effort of polish citizen.

The card shows Castle Square, an important part of Warsaw's Old Town, inscribed in 1981 as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the square there are several polish landmarks, such as the Zygmunt's Column (left side of card) and the Royal Castle (right side of card) and the Patrican Houses.

I adore the colors in the card. It seems like a wonderful place to visit, especially for someone who adores History, like me.

Paris, Je T'aime!

Paris, le Ville-Lumiére or the City of Lights, the capital of France! It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It is home to some of the World’s most recognizable landmarks, such as the Champs-Élysées, le Arc de Triumphe, the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, the Louvre, and, of course, the Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower, named after its designer Gustave Eiffel, was built in 1889 as the entrance arch for the Exposition Universelle. The Exposition was a sort of World’s Fair, held for the centennial celebrations of the French Revolution.

In the beginning, the tower was met with much criticism from the public. Newspapers of the day were filled with angry letters from the arts community of Paris. It was suppose to be dismantled in 1909 but it was allowed to remain due to communication purposes. Nowadays, it’s France’s most recognizable icon.

I think it’s a remarkable piece of architecture, a tribute to Humanity’s imagination and ability.

I have been fascinated with Ireland since childhood. It seems all great things come from there: U2 and Enya, Liam Neeson, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and (Oh, my God!) Colin Farrell. I also love its History and Culture. And, of course, the accent. Have I mentioned I have a thing with accents?
Anyway, this card was sent by neojojo's sister, a portuguese living in Ireland. I am not much of a sheep person but I find this card very amuzing. Oh, how I would love to visit Ireland!...
