The Warsaw Street Art Scene
The last destination of my month long trip in Europe took me to another country full of graffiti and street art in Warsaw, Poland. Warsaw was about an eight hour bus ride from Vilnius, Lithuania so I decided to go visit there for a day and a half. I found out that’s about all you need to spend in Warsaw. The country has a deep historical background with the great amount of museums and historical sites from the world wars that brought great sorrow to the country. However, one of the most interesting things I found in the city of Warsaw was the amount of street art and graffiti that could be seen on almost every block in the city. Some of these artworks covered a whole side of a building. By walking all of Warsaw for almost a good ten hours a day I was able to witness much of the street art and graffiti performed on many structures in the city. Here are some of the more notable ones I discovered.
I eventually wondered upon the Warsaw Uprising Museum which showcased the courage of the Polish people during the Nazi occupation. As with many of the streets throughout Warsaw, the Warsaw Uprising Museum also showcased a good amount of street art and art related to the events throughout the World War. Many of the artworks exemplified certain events through the uprising in Warsaw and the struggles the Polish had to fight through. If you are in the area it’s definitely a must see,
