What people are saying:

On the west bank of the Vistula River in Warsaw, there stands a bronze sculpture with a fishtail of a human body. This is the symbol of the heroic city of Warsaw-the Warsaw Mermaid. In Poland, the mouth of the sea is the Vistula River in the Pirot Sea, and it is said that there are mermaids. At that time, a young man named Wall and a young woman named Shawa were accompanied by a boat to the current Polish capital of Warsaw to open up their homes. The mermaid in the river was their witness and asylum. This place gradually developed into a city. In order to commemorate them, later generations named them "Warsaw" as the name of the city. At the same time, the image of a mermaid is used as the emblem of Warsaw.
