Warsaw Barbican was built in the fifteenth century by the architect, John Baptist of Venice. It was to be part of the protective city walls. Demolished and rebuilt, and finally destroyed during the siege of Warsaw in WW2 and during the Warsaw Uprising. Reconstructed after the war.

Today, it is vaguely a border between the Old and the New City. Beautifully lit, is a kind of local open-air gallery where you can purchase paintings and often bizarre souvenirs, not necessarily related to the city itself.
