We have just received permission to declassify location where there are sirens. Our guests were given shelter in Miniature Park Region of Mazowieckie Street. Senatorska 38, who probably knows most of Warsaw as a former Bank of William Landau. It's a wonderful Art Nouveau building, which has survived almost intact the turmoil of World War II and today is a testament to the beauty of prewar Warsaw, delighting not only with its original architecture and impressive interiors, but also an extraordinary exhibition of miniatures capital's monuments. We could not have wished for a better, more symbolic place that would become a temporary home for our guests.
The sirens will be able to visit the 1st and 2nd October from 18:00 to 22:00. Small groups will be guided tours by scientists who try to bring you closer to everything so far managed to establish about these mysterious creatures. At the same time we ask for your understanding and remain calm in the presence of sirens.
Below we present a statement on the matter deputy president of the Capital City Warsaw, Jaroslaw Joźwiak.
Polish syrenka is cognate with siren, but she is more properly a fresh-water mermaid called melusina. The common English translation, in any case, is neither siren nor melusina but mermaid.
Exactly when the mermaid was added to Warsaw's coat of arms is not known but it was already in place in 1390 with a shape very different from today's. It presented the animal with a bird's legs and a torso covered with dragon scales. On the seal of 1459, it already had feminine characteristics, the torso of a bird, human hands, the tail of a fish and bird legs with claws. The first presentation of the traditional mermaid dates from 1622.
The adoption of such a coat of arms was thought to be a medieval fashion, which recommended the adoption of the symbols of the newly established town's mythology. The presentation of the coat of arms was probably derived directly from the 2nd century book Physiologus.
