King Sigismund III Wasa

Originally I thought this was a statue of Joseph Pilsudski, who is considered by many to be the "father" of modern Poland. He was appointed Chief of State in 1918 following WWI. I have however been recently informed by a helpful person called Jan Sielecki that this is in fact a statue of King Sigismund III Wasa. The column was set up in about the 16th century or so, and destroyed by the Nazis, to be put up again later. It stands in front of the Royal Castle. Thanks Jan.
