Light, witty and touching literary portraits of famous Varsovians: from Władysław of Gielniów to Janusz Stanny!
What plants did Queen Bona grow in her garden? What did Jan III Sobieski eat? How was Chopin's first public performance? Who does Warsaw owe the sewage system to, who lent the face of the Warsaw Mermaid and who hosted the first radio program in Poland? Who were they, what did they do and where did Władysław from Gielniów, Anna Jagiellonka, Sokrates Starynkiewicz, Helena Rzeszotarska, Bolesław Prus, Franciszek Fiszer, Hanka Ordonówna, Julian Tuwim, Janusz Stanny go? All of this - and many other things! - you will find out from "Varsovians".
Two Sisters and two sisters - Małgorzata and Marta Ruszkowskie invite you for a walk around Warsaw, from the oldest to the one we know today. Here you will meet the most famous and distinguished inhabitants of the capital. These are people who lived in Warsaw, but were important to the whole country - kings and queens, famous writers and publishers, famous actresses, distinguished politicians and entrepreneurs, great scientists and a whole lot of other fascinating figures.
Thanks to the Ruszkowski sisters, these legends descend from their pedestals and wander the streets of the capital.
An artistic map of Warsaw is attached to the book, taking into account the places mentioned in the text.
