The column was erected in 1644 and is the oldest secular monument in Warsaw. It is to memorize King Zygmunt III Waza, who transfered the capital from Krakow to Warsaw in 1596.

Nice Shot, he looks a little scared up there. He was also the king of Sweden from 1592-1599 and tried to make us catholic. Here he is called Sigismund and was the grandson of the founder of modern Sweden, Gustav Wasa and Katarina Jagellonica.
