Mariacka Street in Gdańsk, Poland, boasts a one-of-a-kind bas-relief of Diana, the goddess of the hunt, which underwent repairs in 1957. In a nod to the era’s space excitement, local conservators added a lunar vehicle to the artwork, celebrating the Soviet Union’s launch of the satellite Sputnik. This whimsical fusion of mythology and space exploration makes the bas-relief a must-see for tourists, offering a charming and unexpected twist to Gdańsk’s historic streetscape.
