The Polish Nationality Room

From the card: The Polish Nationality Room in the Cathedral of Learning at the University of Pittsburgh contains designs found in Krakow's Wavel Caste.  The 18-foot beamed ceiling reflects the Italian Renaissance influence on Poland.  A portrait of Copernicus and an enlarged replica of the 16th century Jagiellon globe attest to Polish contributions to science.  The windows bear medallions representing institutions of higher education.
