Description   

Sirens are the mythical creatures, half women, half fishes. They are the heroesses of numerous mythos and legends. One of them is the legend of the origins of Warsaw. Fishers have captured a siren and kept her in slavery. A young peasant has rescued her, and as a gratetude, she promised to protect his settlement (which further grown up to Warsaw city) from any dangers. 

On the central square of Old Town, there she is, with shield and sword, ready to protect the city from its enemies.

Your task is to find another depiction of siren, a monument, a refiel, a painting or anything else, which has not been already logged, and provide the exact GPS coordinates together with at least one picture taken by you.

Im Phantasialand erlebten wir heute einen wirklich tollen Tag und ganz nebenbei bemerkte ich, dass gleich neben einem Kettenkarussell zwei Meerjungfrauen den Besuchern zarte Töne ins Ohr hauchen. Ich ließ mich nicht ablenken und machte bei:

Syrenka na rynku w Krapkowicach (Krappitz OS). Nie wiadomo dlaczego rzeźbiarz miał taką wizję, że syrenka ma dwa ogony...
