The next time you are wondering where all the craftsmen have gone I would check out Poland. When the the Royal Castle was destroyed by the Nazis in 1944 in retaliation for the Warsaw uprising it must have seemed that a treasure was lost forever. In fact, even though Old Town had been painstakingly reconstructed during the ten years following the war it was not until 1971 that the task of rebuilding the Royal Castle was undertaken. In 1984 it was complete and magnificent once again. I am not one for spending a lot of time on castle and museum tours but I have to admit this was worth the time. Somehow they recreated the treasure.
