    establish parking areas for residents' own cars on its territory. As of 2005, parking space for only 14 cars had been established within the area.

    Before the city council elections of November 2001, residents in one of Christiania's sections proposed a municipal kindergarten just outside Christiania should be torn down and moved some hundred meters away, the area being turned into a parking lot. The proposal was criticised by other Christiania residents and citizens in the borough, but proponents claimed the wooden kindergarten buildings were outdated anyway and the parking space issue needed to be solved before Christiania itself would turn into an area where cars were widely parked. It has also been claimed that taxis and police vehicles add to the traffic problems.[19]

    As of 2008 Christiania established a road block robot in the vehicle entrance of Christiania next to The Gray Hall to prevent cannabis customers and other visitors from driving into Christiania and park their cars in its narrow streets. Only cargo transport is allowed through these gates. A downside to this was that it moved the problem to another part of Christiania further up the road where the residents now have blocked this entrance entirely until another road block robot will be installed. There are very few entrances to Christiania. With the two entrances blocked by road block robots the Christianites believe they can rid themselves from the problem of harassing traffic

    After the military moved out, the area was only guarded by a few watchmen and there was sporadic trespassing of homeless people using the empty buildings. On 4 September 1971, inhabitants of the surrounding neighbourhood broke down the fence to take over parts of the unused area as a playground for their children.

    Although the takeover was not necessarily organised in the beginning, some claim this happened as a protest against the Danish government. At the time there was a lack of affordable housing in Copenhagen.

    On 26 September 1971, Christiania was declared open by Jacob Ludvigsen, a well-known provo and journalist who published a magazine called Hovedbladet ('The main paper'), which was intended for and successfully distributed to mostly young people. In the paper, Ludvigsen wrote an article in which he and five others went on exploration into what he termed 'The Forbidden City of the Military'. The article widely announced the proclamation of the free town, and among other things he wrote the following under the headline Civilians conquered the 'forbidden city' of the military.

    The last part of the Palace of the Supreme Court ends by the lawn in front of the Krasiński Palace. On this lawn are five brightly coloured winged horses created by the artists Beata Konarska and Paweł Konarski. The palace, like so much else in Warsaw, was heavily damaged during WW2 and rebuilt later.

    The Palace of the Supreme Court is shaped like an "L". This is from where the lower part of the L crosses the street like a triumphal arch. The glass panes are filled with silhouettes of birds of prey to scare real birds away so they won't kill themselves by flying straight into the glass.

    Tourism has been gently introduced to the island. There are excellent beaches and quiet coves, with crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming. Although only one or two are sandy beaches, Paxos has the most magical clear waters for enjoyable swimming. The island has become a favourite destination but continues to remain unspoilt.

    Minutes before. Late May was the end of the semester and all Polish cities were full of children on excursions with their teachers. This group is turning into ulica Kopernika, Copernicus Street. Nicolaus Copernicus (Mikołaj Kopernik; 1473-1543) was one of the great Renaissance scholars dealing with almost every branch of science and culture but most of all known as an astronomer and mathematician. He taught us the the Sun is the centre of our universe, not the Earth, He was born in Toruń and is still the pride of the city.

    Minutes after. I think these children were given a lecture on the history of Toruń by the guide in the "medieval" dress. I don't know what the white and black flag signifies, but i wouldn't be at all surprised if it has some connection with the Catholic church, which is very influential in Poland.

    Having written this, as expected, I got it all explained to me by Malgo (emka)::
    Such sign, black cross on the white was worn by Krzyżacy, The Knights of the Cross or The Teutonic Knights. Torun was founded by them in 1233. There are many castles built by them in northern Poland, biggest one is in Malbork. Torun castle was also built by them.

    Thanks Malgo!
