Pomnik Powstańców Śląskich (The Silesian Insurgents' Monument) in Katowice.

"The monument was designed in 1967 by Gustaw Zemła - a sculptor, and Wojciech Zabłocki - an architect. It is considered one of the best-designed Polish monuments and is presented at a very well exposed location. It is also the largest and heaviest monument in Poland. It is a harmonious combination of architecture and sculpture with appropriate symbolism: the wings symbolize the three Silesian Uprisings (1919-1920-1921) while the names of places that were battlefields are etched on the vertical slopes. The monument, which was funded by the people of Warsaw for Upper Silesia, is considered Katowice's landmark." (From Wikipedia).

The Lustgarten ("Pleasure Garden") is a park on Museum Island in central Berlin, near the site of the former Berliner Stadtschloss (Berlin City Palace) of which it was originally a part. At various times in its history, the park has been used as a parade ground, a place for mass rallies and a public park. (An excerpt from Wikipedia).

Inside the 12th century church of San Nicola in Carcere on Via del Teatro di Marcello in Rome, Italy.

"San Nicola in Carcere is a church dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra, the patron saint of sailors and of children and the remote cause of the phenomenon of Santa Claus. It is a minor basilica and a titular church, and is also the regional church for those from Puglia and Lucania living in Rome.

Perhaps the most interesting thing about the church is that it incorporates the remains of three temples of the Republican era (2nd century BC) which used to stand in a row, side by side in the ancient Forum Holitorium with their entrances facing east. [...]

The nave has seven ancient columns in the arcades on either side, and as mentioned they are not a matching set. Most are Doric, but the four nearest the presbyterium are Ionic. The flat 19th century nave ceiling is coffered in large panels, and is richly decorated in blue and gold with rosettes and tendrils. The coat of arms of Pope Pius IX is displayed. The ceiling of the transverse presbyterium is higher.

The high altar has a baldacchino, and beneath it is an antique green serpentine bath containing the relics of martyrs. [...] There is a U-shaped sotteraneo in front of the altar, with a marble balustrade. The apse behind the altar has frescoes from the 19th century restoration, and are of 1865. On a fluted column near the door, you can see the 11th century dedicatory inscription." (Text from the Churches of Rome Wiki).
