If you are visiting Warsaw between 05-06 July, umm, we’re sorry, but you may experience some disruption during your stay! If you haven’t already heard, President of the United States, Donald Trump, and his wife Melania, will be in town as of tonight at 22:00, kicking off a visit that will last until 14:00 on Thursday.
When Picasso visited Warsaw in 1948 he drew the Warsaw’s Syrenka on a wall at ul. Deotymy 48 in the Wola district. The family who lived in the apartment got sick of the constant flow of visitors wishing to view the work and grew to hate the drawing on their wall. They were finally granted permission to paint over the charcoal drawing! Today there’s a recreation of the symbol on the wall of the house at ul.Obrońców 28/30 in Saska Kępa.
