Description

Not more than a few hundred million years ago, Warsaw ran riot with plants that looked like palm trees. These were far superior to the one standing at de Gaulle Roundabout, because they were living. Our capital city was much closer to the equator, and where it was not covered by the seas, there grew a subtropical forest. This forest was populated by animal life, including dinosaurs. In short, the Polish capital was better off before Poland existed.

This model shows a panorama of the area of today’s Warsaw 200 million years ago. At that time, a subtropical climate reigned at our latitude. The sandy and swampy terrain was covered in coniferous trees, tree ferns, cycadales, gingkos, bennettitales, snake grass, and ferns. These were inhabited by small Composognathus dinosaurs and dragonflies, and footprints of larger dinosaurs were visible in the sand.
