We were fortunate enough to be able to visit a few museums during our time in Poland, one of which was The Warsaw Rising Museum. Besides the fact that we went through the museum completely out of order on accident, I really enjoyed learning more about a part of Polish history that I had never… Continue reading Warsaw: August 1st, 1944
