And they’re on! This weekend marked the magic moment that the streets of Warsaw turned sparkly for Christmas, with approximately 4.5 million energy efficient, eco-friendly LED bulbs illuminating the town, along with 1,300 decorative elements that include light curtains, overhangs, icicles and free-standing decorations.
Costing the city zł. 6.5 million, over 60 lorries were used to transport the illuminations to the capital, with a team of 50 people working diligently through November to ensure Poland’s biggest light show is ready on time. Once more, the Christmas tree on Pl. Zamkowy is the focal point, though in all the decorations are expected to cover around 20 kilometers of the city.
