It’s February in Warsaw. It’s cold. It’s gray. It’s snowing (again). Fortunately, there was yet another odd little museum to visit with the lovely ladies of the International Women’s Group of Warsaw: Parku Miniatur Województwa Mazowieckiego.
No, I can’t pronounce it, either. “Masovian District Miniature Park,” is the proper translation. In fact, there is no park, although one is planned in the future to house around 50 of the 1/25 scale miniature buildings. Each is a perfect model commemorating a historic structure that once existed in Warsaw.
At the moment, a collection of the first ten completed reproductions is housed in a nice Art Deco mansion, one of the very few Warsaw buildings that was not completely leveled in World War II.
While miniatures are not really my thing, I couldn’t help but be impressed by the care and detail that went into each one of these buildings. When the outdoor park is finally completed, it will be a pretty cool Warsaw attraction.
