At the top of this column in Castle Square stands a proud King Zygmunt III Waza – whose name is frequently translated to Sigismund, so it's often referred to as Sigismund's Column. He's dressed in armour and has a cross in one hand and a sword in the other. Around his statue stand four eagles. It's interesting for being one of Europe's oldest secular monuments – not counting castles of course – and was first placed aloft in 1644.

You can tell where you are in Warsaw by keeping an eye on where the Zygmunt is.
