Warsaw. New Monument to Napoleon.

27 Aug 2010

Napoleon was widely appreciated in Poland. Erecting monuments to the Emperor was not accepted by the three occupants of the Slavic country. After restoring independence in 1918 the hundredth anniversary of his death was celebrated in Poland nearly as it was in France.

 Warsaw City Council has just given the go-ahead for the construction of a monument at the site of an old statue on Plac Powstańców Warszawy, which used to be known as Napoleon Square before World War Two
